Hamptons Launches Property Fund

Hamptons is offering an investment in either a two-year property development or a five-year growth fund.

The two-year development fund invests in land and provides a fixed return of 15% annually. The five-year growth fund invests in property and offers an uncapped return of 10% annually.

Each fund operates independently, both legally and financially, giving greater flexibility and liquidity than conventional funds, the group says. Matthew Tack, the director of global investment, says the product allows investors to take a small, protected stake in the property market, while still being able to sell quickly if necessary.

The minimum investment is £20,000. The group wants to raise a maximum of £2m before closing the fund.
