Top 2 investments to make in 2020

A new year, a new start, a new investment opportunity. Actually, here’s two! With the current economic uncertainty within the United Kingdom due to Brexit and other economic changes, some investors are shying away from investing. Brexit has been predicted to increase volatility in the U.K market, prolong the slowness of the housing market, and even cause volatility in the currency market. However, some industries still continue to thrive despite the instability, and some feed off the volatility allowing investors to benefit from a worst-case scenario. That being said, the profitable option in 2020 would be to consider investing in alternative products – here’s our top two ways to successfully diversifying your investment portfolio in the coming year.


Invest in Care Homes

The Facts - UK Care Homes Investments

With the NHS and local authorities responsible for funding of 69% of care homes in the UK, the elderly’s medical needs have been put at risk. The needs and standards of services offered to the elder generations have been compromised as a result of the £2.45 billion deficit in the NHS Trust, in 2016. As a result, local authorities began to rely on privately owned care homes to fill the gap in care for those who qualify for financial support.

So where does your investment come in? A care home operator purchases an operational care home that is either already performing well or is in need of refurbishment. They will then sell individual units to investors on a sale-and-lease back model meaning investors retain full ownership of the property and reap the benefits of the property being fully managed by the operator. Further benefits include:

  • High yield with 8% - 10% return per annum
  • No running costs such as service charges, ground rent or management fees
  • Assured buy-back offers with capital growth after just three years of ownership
  • Stamp duty exempt
  • Hands-free investment (fully managed and operated)
  • No development risk, completed and operational care homes
  • Immediate income from an ethical investment
  • Regulated by the CQC in England and the CIW in Wales
  • Complete ownership of your investment, including registered title deeds on the UK land registry
