Steve BoltonChairman & Founder
Steve is a highly successful entrepreneur who began investing in property in 2002. Having made his first million before he was 30 through his outdoor adventure and management training business, Steve encountered financial difficulties like many other business owners during the financial downturn of 2001. In what he describes as the ‘best worst experience of his life’ he realised that it was his home that saved him from bankruptcy. As a result, he was inspired to rebuild his fortune on the solid foundation of buy-to-let property investment.
Through extensive research, Steve discovered the robust residential letting model of premium‘Houses of Multiple Occupancy’ for young professionals and set about building his own portfolio. Within a year, he was achieving excellent returns and sought advice on franchising the model to others. Platinum Property Partners was launched in 2007 in conjunction with business partner Richard Davies. Steve’s experience in the sector has now seen him become an industry-leading speaker, property investment expert and author of the highly-acclaimed book, ‘Successful Property Investing: How to earn £50,000 to £150,000 in two to five years’.
Steve aims to help others achieve financial freedom that allows them to enjoy a better quality of life, spend more time with their families and give back to the community. He personally developed the PPP philosophy of Be More, Do More, Have More, Give More.
Steve lives in Bournemouth with his wife and four children. He loves PPP, travelling, boating, fishing, snowboarding, reading and writing – and being the best dad he can be. He believes that anything is possible with the right support and motivation.
