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.
