Online overseas property investment aid launched

An online service for individual overseas property investor has been launched to help potential investors search the best places worldwide to invest their money.

Invest2Gain.co.uk helps potential investors make informed choices on where to put their money to get the best return by providing professional and unbiased financial analysis of investment opportunities overseas.

Terry Pentland, managing director of invest2gain, says: “Based on personal experience many of the expensive brochures issued by developers paint a very rosy picture and this is not surprising.

“A detailed analysis can strip the gloss from some of these opportunities.

“We aim to give potential investors all the facts and figures that they need on developments in a number of countries, some of which we may have sourced or alternatively, those that our clients may be considering.

“We are keen to work in partnership with appropriate developers.

“However, we know that we can attract serious investors where we can demonstrate a robust financial case on the developer’s behalf.

“This helps them to stand out in the sea of potential investments that exists.”
