Blackmore Building UK Property
The UK has seen its largest population growth in history over the last 10 years, and housing supply
is not keeping up with the additional demand.
Estimates put the need for additional housing in England at between 232,000 to 300,000 new units per year, a level two to three times current supply.
Our view of the market is that demand will continue to outstrip supply in the UK representing an excellent opportunity to further grow the Blackmore business.
We intend to expand our property portfolio by continuing to offer fixed interest bonds to investors, ultimately secured against our UK assets and backed up by a Capital Protection Scheme provided by a private surety business in the event of insolvency. Please note that security may be insufficient to repay bondholder capital and interest and the Capital Protection Scheme does not guarantee a return. Please see the ‘Is my capital protected?’ in the FAQ’s and the Home page for details of the limitations of this scheme.
To date we have issued over £35 million corporate bonds, the current Series 5 bonds, for the 2018 to 2019 issuance programme are for a total of £50 million.
Some Risks and Advantages of the Bond
Risks and Security:
- Should Blackmore fail to pay premiums this would result in the policy falling away.
- Should Blackmore fail to make notification to the insurer in a timely manner this may cause the policy to be invalidated.
- The ultimate underwriter may become insolvent at the time of or before a claim meaning that they would not be able to pay out on the policy.
