Following the recent announcement of FJPs partnership with Godwin Developments, we thought it would be beneficial to introduce you all to Godwin Capital Investments.
This company is the funding arm of Godwin and was established with the purpose of raising capital from a range of avenues such as the loan note market, listed bonds along with ISA’s and public listings, therefore as long as a project passes the strict due diligence checks of Godwin Developments, the funding arm will then raise capital in order to see the project through.
There are a number of partners within the property industry in which Godwin Capital Investments work with such as other property developers, joint venture partners and of course family offices. Property funding is a complex business which requires a complex approach in order to secure the capital required to get developments built.
We’ve noticed from our time working with Godwin that they see their projects through, before they have even gone out to market and identified where the funds are coming from they will be thinking and sourcing the end buyer/user.
Godwin Capital Investment
Godwin Capital Investment is a subsidiary of Godwin Developments and was set up to raise capital for the developments. The company has been very successful in attracting investors and we believe they are an excellent partner for FJP Investment to be introducing our investors to.
- Godwin Capital No 1 – a 3 year and 5 year loan note instrument approved by a number of pension platforms
- Godwin Capital No 2 – a 2 year loan note instrument investment with either six monthly or deferred coupon payments for cash investors only
At the end of the raise, Godwin Capital would look to launch the next SPV, namely Godwin Capital No 3, 4, 5 and so on.
Godwin Capital Investments will always select sites that suggest there is an opportunity to earn at least a 30% return on project costings. The process of selecting the right projects is thorough and is a reflection of the stringent due diligence that is deployed on any project analysis therefore ensuring the best due diligence is undertaken before an investment is made it means any probabilities are eliminated beforehand.
Why Use Loan Notes?
Godwin Capital Investment will use a range of funding sources and from time to time use bank financing. In reality, bank funding can take typically 3 months to arrange which is the reason the capital raise arm of Godwin Developments has set about making use of a multi sourcing strategy which encompasses both high net worth and sophisticated investors along with institutions and of course family offices.
The security trustee is in place and is a representative of the interests of those who hold the loan notes (the investor). The legal charge is then held by the security trustee against the property and this effectively means a mortgage debenture is held over the assets, providing the investor with security in the event that the company were to default on the repayments.
The Godwin management team is made up of a very high calibre team of professionals with Godwin starting in the business some 15 years ago. The property board has 2 members which both have +40 years experience in the construction sector. Since the company is well respected and has 15 years worth of history, there is a massive pipeline of developments that are in-place ready to act on as when capital is raised.
