FJP have had an exceptionally busy start to 2018 and today we are delighted to announce the partnership we have entered into with Godwin Developments. We will be introducing high net worth and sophisticated investors to the 2 year loan note investment that is currently on offer from Godwin Developments.
Godwin Developments is active in regional property development and is focussed primarily towards building out and monetising its large and varied portfolio of both commercial and residential property, these assets are a mix of developments that are being developed with the option of either selling or holding for income.
The focus is on a mix of short, medium and longer term maturity in order to optimise the value and cash flow of the groups investment programme. This ultimately leads in to the balance between risk and reward while ensuring the portfolio is not weighted too heavily on any area in particular.
Within the property development circles which we frequent, Godwin Developments is a well-regarded entity and they have managed to build a great reputation for their work.
What makes Godwin Developments particularly attractive to FJP Investment is the very strong pipeline of development and investment opportunities they have in the pipeline throughout the United Kingdom.
Godwin Developments is operating from three locations at present; Birmingham, Nottingham and London, which is particularly useful considering our strong makeup of investors throughout the United Kingdom.
In terms of the areas in which Godwin Developments is active, they have a strong focus on an area made up between Leeds, Liverpool, Bristol and Cambridge – this pretty much takes in the main population centres of the Midlands. This segment of the UK property market is also in keeping with our own research- as all the indicators currently indicate the Midlands will be an area of strong regional growth over the coming years.
Due to a housing shortage coupled with higher rents, we have identified the Midlands and the North of England as key areas for investment in housing which is ultimately down to the consequences of an increasing population. It is very unlikely that we will see Godwin Developments going after development opportunities in London or the South East as the market is no longer the pick of the bunch, as other areas now provide higher returns and in far greater volume.

In the residential sector, Godwin Developments will have a particular focus on opportunities in:
- Private Rental Sector (PRS)
- Private Housing
- Housing Associations
- Local Council & Quasi-Governmental Bodies

- Neighbourhood Centres

About Godwin Developments
The existing portfolio is made up of residential and commercial properties in multiple regions of the United Kingdom. As far as diversifying risk goes, the Godwin Developments portfolio is as varied as any UK property portfolio gets.
Godwin Developments is particularly interested in identifying opportunities with develop out, planning gain, refurbishment or even strategic land purchases.
While each project has a methodical approach to be taken such as a target return, they are all assessed on a case by case basis which determines the amount of time and resources to be inputted.
All in all, we feel we have partnered with a fantastic developer and we believe the experience that Godwin Developments has will benefit our investors.
Godwin Developments Loan Note Investment
2018 is set to be a big year for property based loan notes following on from what was a record year in 2017.
FJP Investment is at the forefront of property loan notes / property bonds and we can see that among all the different structures we are able to offer our investors, the loan note model is particularly favoured.
We believe the reason for the unprecedented popularity of loan note investments is that they give flexibility and readily available capital to property developers and brilliant returns in a timely manner to the investor. The loan note model creates a win-win for both property developers and the investor.
It is important to note that all of the loan notes that FJP Introduce are only accessible by high net-worth or sophisticated investors.
