With as many as 26,000 people homeless in the UK, Swan Group seeks to use its investment and development expertise to create affordable homes, building on more than 40 years’ of experience in the acquisition and development of property.
Since its formation in 2013, Swan Group and its strategic partnerships have brought a progressive approach to the British real estate market, with a focus on student accommodation as well as private and affordable housing. With as many as 20% of householders in the UK predicted to be living in rented accommodation by 2022, Swan Group is able to unlock the potential of the sector.
Swan Group’s Swan Real Estate plc. currently offers a secured bond boasting an impressive 6.25% rate of return. The bond, which is listed on an EU Stock Exchange, requires a minimum investment of £10,000, paying a strong 6.25% interest annually. The bond is ideal for those with asset portfolios that are well diversified and those looking to generate higher yields in exchange for holding the bond until its maturity. However, like all investments, independent financial advice should always be sought.
Working With the Community
In addition to its strategic partnership with Knight Frank, Swan Group joins over 200 other organisations in being a Commercial Associate of the Scottish Federation of Housing Associates, the body that represents Scotland’s housing co-operatives and associations. Along with commercial associates from sectors that include procurement, insurance, construction and finance, Swan Group helps Scottish Federation of Housing Associates members through the nurturing of strong relationships to support its work throughout Scotland.
Swan Group’s residential developments include:
Elliot Terrace – Based in Falkirk, Elliot Terrace has fantastic amenities across its 13 units of two bedroom apartments and duplexes. Through Elliot Terrace, Swan Group aims to help resolve Falkirk’s housing shortage, where there are almost 10 times more people needing social housing than is available.
Cumbernauld – The town centre site of Cumbernauld is based in North Lanarkshire, the 4th largest local authority in Scotland. This development will see nearly 60 small retail and commercial units converted into flats. Each flat will be allocated its own parking space within the car park of the shopping centre.
Law Place – A 105 unit development consisting of both flats and terrace houses, Law Place is just 12 miles outside of Glasgow city centre. There is a high demand for housing in this area with supply falling way behind, making this area a prime location for new residential property.
