Property investment funds making a comeback

Now that the UK property market appears to be showing signs of life we are starting to see the introduction of property bonds and property funds into the UK investment market. This is the first time we have seen new property-based investments released to the market since the recession began and could be seen as a sign of further confidence in the UK property market.

However, it is worth checking out the small print of these particular property bonds and property funds which will offer a degree of security for your investment but also cap any benefit from the rise in the value of the average UK property. There is a concern that we are moving back towards these complex property investment instruments which many people do not fully understand, with many investors having already paid the price when the credit crunch began and property values began to fall.

If you're looking towards the property sector it is worth while speaking to your financial advisor and checking out what is on the market and the terms and conditions attached to specific investments. While many still believe that UK property, i.e. bricks and mortar, is still a very safe long-term investment there are some people who have lost a significant amount of money over the last few years. We all need to remember that no investment is risk-free!
