Portfolio () is a mobile app (iOS and Android) that makes it simple for anyone to become a property investor. Users can sign up, make a deposit, and buy shares in a hand-picked portfolio of rental properties across the UK. Once they ve invested, the app allows them to interact via video tours, surveys and news updates.
This is completely new to the UK market, and we have the ambition and resources to grow Portfolio into a household name Fintech product – doing for property investing what Freetrade has done for the stock market.
We ve already launched a beta version, and people have used the app to invest in over £9m of property in just a few months. Now we ve proved the concept, we re continuing to build out the team that will allow us to scale Portfolio into a mass market proposition.
Portfolio is a sister company of Property Hub – a company with a decade-plus track record of providing trusted information and services to property investors, with a team of 50+ across our offices in London and Manchester.
