Bricksave Experienced Investor

 

Q: What attracted you to Bricksave’s platform?

A: What attracted me was the focus on secure investments with a long-term investment horizon – that kind of approach is perfect for building a stable portfolio, as it means I don’t have to worry about volatility affecting my investment, which is a real bonus when you are dealing with an extensive and varied portfolio.

 

Q: Have you invested in real estate before?

A: Yes, but until now my focus has mainly been on more intangible assets. These, as you can imagine, can bring a lot of risk to the table, and it’s good for me to be able to use Bricksave to help establish a secure foundation based on solid property investment. My previous real estate investments have come with a lot of headaches, so it’s also useful to have all of that taken care of so I can focus on other things.

 

Q: What is your overall goal by investing with Bricksave?

A: To build up the real estate portion of my portfolio and therefore strengthen it as a whole against volatility. The smaller investment amounts allowed by Bricksave also means that I can diversify much more effectively, which only strengthens my position.

 

Q: How much did you know about real estate before investing?

A: As I said, I have invested in property in the past, but there were some issues I encountered. These issues actually taught me a lot about the property market, and when I found Bricksave I could see that they were making some intelligent investment decisions. It was good to put what I already knew to good use.

 

Q: What are your thoughts on Real Estate Crowdfunding as a concept?

A: From my perspective it’s very much a case of whatever works. If I’m seeing the progress and the gains I wanted, and my portfolio is getting more profitable, then I’m happy.
