Past performance is not a reliable indicator or future results. Your Capital is at Risk. The value of investments may go down as well as up and you may not get back the original amount invested. Returns are not guaranteed and you may wish to seek professional advice. 

In safe hands

BondMason enables investors to access attractive returns from property-backed lending. Our exclusive relationships with specialist property lending partners, enables clients to gain exposure to better quality, well priced opportunities, which may not otherwise be available to investors direct.  Since 2015, we've reviewed 150 Direct Lending providers and platforms, conducting rigorous due diligence to select our 33 approved lending partners.

Managing risk

Every day, the Investment Team analyse and assess available loan opportunities from our lending partners, only selecting good quality, well-priced loans with a conservative loan-to-value ratio. This means clients have a good buffer between what they lend and the value of the asset which they have security over. BondMason will never compromise on quality and as such, only 1 in 4 loan opportunities are approved.

Diversification

The BondMason lending portfolio is diversified across 100+ loan positions.  Spreading investment across different partners and loan types, with a focus on lending secured against property, helps to manage risk and target healthy returns.

Access to your funds

If your circumstances may change, you can typically access your funds within 1 to 2 days.  A note of caution: The average remaining term of the underlying property loans is 9 months, so if everyone wanted their funds back on the same day, that's how long it may take to receive your funds. Under normal circumstances you can access your money much faster.

THE STEADY INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITY
Property lending is the new investing

With interest rates at an all-time low and reasonable investment returns proving elusive, investing in loans secured against property offers a viable alternative, with the potential to deliver attractive risk adjusted returns with lower volatility. 

All of the loans we invest in are secured - with the significant majority secured against UK residential and commercial property.

Refurbishment finance. No planning risk

Projects fall within the scope of permitted development, or have planning permission.

We prefer loans used to fund small-scale property refurbishment, or developments such as converting a house into a few flats.

Conservative loan-to-value

The average loan-to-value of our property loans is 56%.

Valuations are independent, typically conducted by professional surveyors adhering to red-book processes.

Manually reviewed

The BondMason Investment team reviews every loan, with only 1-in-4 loans being approved by us.

We conduct additional due diligence and verify valuations with our own research and marketability assessments.

Fees range from 1.0% p.a - 1.5% p.a based on your invested capital.

INTRODUCING BONDMASON BRIX
BRIX: Britain's Residential Property Investment Index

BondMason has created a new index to help Britain’s private landlords and investors benchmark the performance of their residential property investments.

The BondMason BRIX index will be updated monthly to track the financial performance of listed corporate landlords in the UK, enabling private landlords to compare the performance of their own buy-to-let portfolios.  Latest versions are available here: www.bondmason.com/bondmason-brix 

BondMason's CEO, Stephen Findlay, explains:

“Historically the UK rental market has been dominated by private landlords, but that is now changing following the increased tax burden and new regulations which make it harder to generate a positive income each year.  “

“The good news is that individuals can now access investment returns from the buy-to-let market by investing in listed corporate landlords, with the added benefit of being able to do so within a tax efficient wrapper such as an ISA or SIPP.”
