Fund performance

  • Both Regional Capitals and London funds have annualised returns of 7.5%+ since launch
  • Total returns are a combination of capital growth and income, and do not rely on any long-term leverage, lowering the portfolio risk profile
  • The value of each property portfolio is independently assessed by Allsop LLP on a monthly basis, and included in the valuation of each fund published to the market fortnightly

How are our REITs different?

  • Bricklane’s geographically focused residential property REITs are listed on TISE, The International Stock Exchange.
  • Share trading occurs once every two weeks, maximising the pool of accessible investor liquidity while minimising share price volatility
  • Investors and their advisers have no need to “time the market”, on entry or exit, and can add or withdraw funds gradually as required
  • Bricklane’s REITs only contain residential properties and their rents, without the significant corporate overheads of traditional REITs.

Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance

Capital at risk

The value of your investment can go down as well as up. If you want to sell shares, there is no guarantee that you will be able to find a buyer for your shares within a reasonable timeframe at a price that is acceptable to you. The REITs invest in residential property, which are not highly liquid assets. Rental yields and dividends may be lower than estimated.

Tax rules and allowances depend on individual circumstances and may change in the future. If you are unsure about whether investment is right for you, you should seek independent advice before investing, including tax advice.
