Property Fortress Summit

Up You Game

14 Speakers sharing what they do

July 1-2, Central London

I am bringing together 14 investors and developers from around the UK. They will share what they are doing. What is working for them in their respective markets. The idea is you can learn from people out there making it happen. In addition, as a member of the audience, you can check the speakers. Some or most of the speakers are actively looking to fund future deals.  If those deals are put on a crowd funding site, checking out the individuals early is part of the due diligence process.

We will review how to structure your future deals. Debt vs equity. When it leverage a death trap rather than savvy investing? How to use different forms of equity to maximize the results. Raising mezzanine finance, using preference shares, restricted rights, and other variations will be reviewed.

Due diligence is another theme for the two days. With various projects as case studies, we can peel apart the key details to de-risk opportunities.

Raising Money Legally for Joint Ventures

Jo Rogers & John Corey

Do you want to raise your game and attract funding for your deals? Have you heard that the FCA cares about what you are sharing? Many posts in the property Facebook groups are illegal. The crime is the sharing (posting on FB, by phone, in person) and not if a deal is done.

Jo is a legal expert (practicing lawyer raising funding for clients in two financial centers – NY and London). She is also a UK landlord who has experienced some of the pitfalls common to joint ventures.

I will provide an overview of the FCA regulations, how they apply and the issues if you have ‘overseas’ investors. Jo will lead us through best practice for structuring, negotiating, documenting and communicating with investment partners. She will be sharing some of her best ‘clauses’ or whole contracts for joint ventures. We will review case studies. The JV scorecard will be demonstrated with everyone scoring a deal they have done or want to do as a JV.

We will be hosting the next session on 15 July 2017. There are 18 spots available. We keep the group tight so we can have a lot of interaction and debate.


Speaking of the crowd, I will also explain how you can outsource the FCA regulatory burden by using an FCA-approved crowdfunding site. A success-based, PAYG-model for raising funding legally.

Keep It Real

Each month we also hear from a few investors in the audience. People like you, who are not on the speaker circuit. People like you, sharing their journey, live, as it happens. Learning from doing while making better connections with your fellow investors. Most of the people John calls on have no warning that he will be putting them in the spotlight. You might be that person as your journey is interesting to others.

You can buy tickets for this month’s meet or future meets. See below.

Ask John

Interested in a 20-minute chat, 1 to 1 with John? Looking for that extra nudge or insight that will make all the different? What is the biggest pain or obstacle holding you back? A problem shared is a problem halved.

All John asks is you know what you want to discuss. When booking a time, provide some background. John will read what you share and otherwise prepare for the call. This is the only requirement when you book.

Paying it forward is the idea. John giving back by helping you move forward with your journey.

Use the link and book a time slot which works for you. If you are in the UK, John will call you at the scheduled time. If you are traveling or are based outside the UK, FaceTime or Zoom are the preferred options. The details can be worked out by email.
