What does Trump mean for UK property bond investments?

What does Trump mean for UK property bond investments?

Since Donald Trump became President-elect, we’ve been fielding a lot more questions about property bond investments, as people seek financial security in these times of upheaval.

It’s fair to say it feels like the world has become a different place in the space of a few short months. So, could property bond investments be a good route to go down not just to protect savings, but to also grow them in a world of biting negative rates?

When it comes to Trump and his effect on the UK property market, the truth is we won’t know what happens until he takes office. However, making property bond investments in the right ventures will always be a good idea.

Growing your savings with a property bond investment

As many are pointing out Trump has a soft spot for the UK, especially Scotland where he’s currently developing a golf course. The Republican, though, is also expected to bring a lot of investment back to his own country due to a personal and political disinterest in global trade deals.

However, some feel that investors over in the US are already looking to put their money into UK property – particularly in London. The capital is seen by some as a safe haven for cash while the markets figure themselves out. This is one of the more attractive features of a UK property bond, and it’s not just US citizens who may look increasingly to London.

Camilla Dell, managing partner of property agency Black Brick, believes a lot more investors in the Middle East will begin to consider property bond investments and other UK opportunities, thanks to Trump’s comments during his election campaign about people of the Muslim faith.

How to find property bond investments with potential for high returns

The residential market in the UK could also simply see a lot more US expats head toward the UK. The fall in value of the pound against the dollar means there are a lot of attractive propositions on offer for overseas buyers looking to get away.

Trump, as Forbes points out, is also a keen real estate entrepreneur. So, as we and many others have mentioned, it’s simply unknown what will happen in Washington until Trump is firmly behind his desk. There may be more restrictions to the global market, or it could be bursting with opportunity.

Britons have to keep in mind that there’s Brexit to contend with, too. Brexit could hit property prices in 2017 and the case for buy to let looks weaker than ever. Property bond investments are therefore a valuable way to get potentially high regular returns, so long as you find bonds that work for you.

Make the right choice, and a property bond can help to grow your savings in a fixed-term manner, while markets continue to be gripped by uncertainty.

Property bond investments can earn you potentially high returns in a fixed-term, asset-backed way in a government supported sector. Contact Heron Global Partners to find out more.

The world's renewable energy investment forecast is fair

The world’s renewable energy investment forecast is fair

A lot of eyes are currently focused on the renewable energy investment scene because of the incredible returns it can potentially provide investors.

How? Because of the sheer amount of long-term renewable energy projects occurring worldwide as the world bids to exist on a future run by clean energy. The planning and adoption of clean energy across the globe has seen a boom in renewable energy investment growth as savers look to grow their money in ethical ways.

The high potential returns on offer from clean energy too make the renewable energy investment forecast look positively sunny, especially if areas such as Ethiopia and the Maldives achieve their future targets.

A positive-looking renewable energy investment forecast

The two countries are part of a group of 48 vowing to run off 100% clean energy by 2050. The areas are where climate change is hitting hardest, and is promising to work “as rapidly as possible” to implement clean energy solutions.

Renewable energy investment can not only help savers to grow their money, but also support projects similar to these to help countries and businesses run more of their infrastructure from clean energy.

Renewable energy investment can also take advantage of new, innovative trends. Wales, for instance, has been using its renewable energy investment wisely and is now one of the leading countries in the world – alongside Scotland – when it comes to clean energy production.

According to Green Alliance, counties in Wales such as Gwynedd and Mid Glamorgan are said to be the most improved when it comes to implementing solar and wind power. So much so that onshore wind power is now said to be cheaper than building new gas plants.

Capitalising on the trend of renewable energy investment growth

Morocco is another country that’s leading the way when it comes to clean energy solutions, especially in Africa.

As well as changes in the law such as banning plastic bags entirely and replacing its old bus and taxi fleets, Morocco is well on course to have more than half of its energy come from renewables by 2020.

They’ve reached this stage because of significant investment into its infrastructure, with new solar farms, wind and hydraulic dams being built to change the way the country views its energy status.

Before the projects almost all of Morocco’s energy was imported as the country had no fossil fuel reserves. Not only does it give Morocco more energy independence, but they’re looking to harness the energy they’re collecting and sell it to other countries.

Morocco isn’t just leading the way in Africa but across the globe with its renewable efforts. Savers and investors can look toward clean energy projects such as these to grow their capital in the long-term, and back a clean ethical sector that can only benefit the future direction of the planet.

Which countries are embracing renewable energy bonds the most?

Which countries are embracing renewable energy bonds the most?

Mexico City’s developing a totally carbon-neutral airport, with all of the energy running it set to come exclusively from clean energy sources. The project was announced at the end of September; intriguingly, it’s also being funded by renewable energy bonds.

The airport will serve an estimated 125 million passengers every year, will feature solar initiatives and will be incredibly efficient with its water usage. Over $2 billion worth of renewable energy bonds have been sold to fund the project which is scheduled to be operational by 2020.

Mexico City shows how to invest in renewable energy bonds

Investors will no doubt have asked ‘why invest in renewable energy bonds’ at the time, but the potential returns are sure to have sealed the deal. Renewable energy bonds were available as 10- or 30-year options, with annual interest rates of 4.25% and 5.5% respectively.

As impressive as their airport project is, there are cities and countries out there that are currently running either close to or 100% off renewable energy sources. Costa Rica, for instance, ran entirely on 100% renewable energy for 285 days over the course of 2015.

The country wants to be run entirely from renewable sources, but is it possible? And, if so, are any countries actually currently achieving that feat?

It’s certainly possible. Researchers at Stanford and UC-Davis believe that the entire world could be powered by renewables within 20-40 years with the current technology available to us. Sadly, they also highlight that the biggest stumbling block is political factors.

Albania and Paraguay are also renewables powerhouses, almost being run entirely on hydropower. Both countries make use of the extensive rivers and dams close to them, with the latter’s Itaipu Dam previously nominated as one of the seven wonders of the modern world.

How to invest in renewable energy bonds from just £5,000

Iceland’s leading the way though, with almost 100% of its energy being produced from clean sources; namely hydropower and geothermal. Iceland is known to generate the most clean energy per person, and has saved the country approximately $8 billion since 1970.

Other countries are catching up, and political hurdles are starting to be overcome, most visibly through the Paris Climate Change deal. For investors looking to back clean energy sources and develop clean energy projects, like in Mexico City, fixed-rate asset-backed renewable energy bonds can help investors grow their money.

Experts in the Telegraph have recently hailed renewable energy bonds as one of the few opportunities to currently earn serious income from your savings. With low entry-level fees and high potential yields over a short period of time – shorter than Mexico City’s airport bonds – it’s easy to see why they’re fast becoming the most serious alternative investment proposition on the market.

Why invest in renewable energy bonds? They not only give you the ability to back the clean energy industry, but to grow your investment from as little as £5,000 with potential yields of 10%. Contact Heron Global Partners’ investment specialists today.

UK venture investment breaks records as oil continues to slide

UK venture investment breaks records as oil continues to slide

2016’s already been a radical one for investment; especially for more traditional investment opportunities.

Most of our coverage over the last few weeks has focused on commodities with a particular spotlight on the price of oil. Incidentally, to keep you updated, prices were slashed again on Monday which thoroughly dashed any hopes of building momentum.

The price jump the week before turned out to be a blip with US oil shares dropping 95 cents to plunge to $31.24 a barrel. The Opec cartel has called for countries outside of its union to co-operate and tackle the global oversupply of oil.

Most troubling is that the BBC reports that the issue has caused a number of oil and gas companies to fold in the UK; a direct correlation with the plunging price of oil, according to accountancy firm Moore Stephens.

Huge UK investments, but where’s the British Facebook?

Huge UK investments, but where’s the British Facebook?

Last week we wrote about China’s visit to the UK, and the £40 billion that’s set to reach our shores to be put into UK investment opportunities.

Energy and technology sectors are bearing a lot of fruit, attracting large investments from venture capitalists across the globe. It’s easy to see why, according to data from Dow Jones, which has highlighted that a third of European venture capital investment is coming to the United Kingdom.

Between July to September this year, UK investment opportunities attracted €947m across 87 deals, just under a third of all European investment across the quarter.
