Brooks Macdonald's property arm opens fund to retail investors

Brooks Macdonald's property arm opens fund to retail investors

Brooks Macdonald has made the IFSL North Row Liquid Property fund accessible to retail investors, with a minimum investment of £10,000.

The fund invests in property derivatives, and property equity and debt, the value of which is directly linked to the commercial property markets. It aims to deliver income and capital gains similar to with investment in property markets, targeting an income yield of 4.5%-5.5% with low volatility.

The fund is managed by Stephen Grahame, and was launched via North Row Capital, a division of Brooks MacDonald.

'The IFSL North Row Liquid Property fund provides a unique investment proposition which we believe will be very appealing to a wide range of UK retail investors,' Simon Wombwell, chief executive of Brooks Macdonald Funds, said.

'Investors looking to benefit from rising property markets, but who are uninterested or unable to purchase property directly, can look to the fund as an opportunity to attain commercial property returns through a much lower minimum investment and without the liquidity restrictions associated with slower moving bricks and mortar investments.'
