Platinum Property Partners launches new venture investment Syndicate

The team behind Platinum Property Partners (PPP), the specialist buy-to-let franchise, is pleased to announce the launch of a new investment opportunity which is being made available to both existing Partners and the wider market.

Platinum Venture Partners (PVP) will officially launch on 3rd March 2015 and will offer Syndicate Members exclusive mentoring and investments in the venture, angel and Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) sector.

Using the core principles that have made PPP such a success, PVP has been developed to satisfy the need for a broader range of diversified business investments requiring lower levels of capital.

This will provide a greater balance alongside PPP’s existing offering of income producing property investments and loan offerings.

PVP aims to enable investors to maximise their returns and minimise their risks in the exciting space of venture and angel investing. This will be achieved by using the following business assets:

A Blue-Chip Investment Committee - PVP has access to an exclusive Blue-Chip Investment Committee, including Sir Nigel Rudd, the Chairman of Heathrow Airport and other luminaries in the business world. This committee will pre-approve every investment before it is put forward to PVP Syndicate Members using a robust and proven due diligence process.

A tried, tested and proven methodology - PVP will only be offering venture investments in later stage companies. All of these businesses will be fairly valued and well-funded with a capable board of Directors and Senior Management Team.

A spread of investment - Investors will be encouraged to agree upfront how much of their net worth they would like to allocate to venture investing. They will then be able to build a diversified portfolio by spreading the investment across a range of businesses and industry sectors.

A full-time professional team - PVP will have a team of full-time professionals work on finding, analysing and conducting extensive due diligence on a wide range of businesses. Only those that fit our criteria and also pass all of our stringent due diligence tests will be put forward to the Blue-Chip Investment Committee for consideration. Only once approved will investments be proposed to PVP Syndicate Members.

A tax-efficient investment - One of the key benefits of venture investing is the tax-efficiency that comes with Enterprise Investment Schemes (EIS). Tax-efficiency will be a core principle with all PVP investments, thereby ensuring that all investors’ returns are maximised.

Becoming a Syndicate Member is completely free of charge for those who meet the qualification criteria, but places are strictly limited.

Interested parties are being urged to book their place on PVP’s first mentoring and investment event being held in central London on Tuesday 3rd March 2015. Being hosted by PVP’s Chairman Steve Bolton and Investment Director Julian Hickman, ‘Successful Venture Investing’ will provide delegates with the opportunity to find out more about PVP, venture investing and the benefits of becoming a Syndicate Member.
