Yielding Assets Platform

We serve our clients with a medium-to-long term view to value creation. We look for income-producing products that offer high security of principal and a predictable and secure regular income stream with the right level of diversification. In early 2012, we launched the Yielding Assets Platform and since then, we have identified and advised on multiple real estate assets that offer an attractive monthly income stream and security of principal in the UK, US and Europe.

The Yielding Assets Platform is a core and ongoing business line that transacts on an asset-by-asset basis, in major global markets that provide legal and tax transparency and protections. It aims to deliver:

  • A monthly income equating to an annual yield of 7.5% - 8.5% net of fees and taxes
  • An IRR of 11%-13%, net of taxes and fees
  • A conservative loan-to-value target of 50% - 65%
  • A projected holding period of 3 to 5 years
  • An on-going advisory service on the property
  • A pro-active management of the property for value creation
  • An alignment of interest wherein AFG and senior employees hold a minimum equity investment throughout the investment period

Arzan Wealth partners with local, on-the-ground expertise in key markets to provide asset-level advisory services that complement the strategic advisory services that Arzan Wealth provides to its clients.
