Chris is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Sourcing Investments. Chris had previously worked in large corporates, such as PA consulting and Intel Corporation, before immersing himself in the property sector. He is an experienced property investor in his own right, including leading a £35m London-based property fund, and building his own HMO and BTL portfolio. Chris has also trained and mentored a large number of International and UK property investors on their own property journey.
Chris is always the person to ask ‘why’ and challenge the status quo – and after seeing the challenges faced his own property investment trainees, venturing into the largely unregulated property investing market, he decided to do something about it. That’s how Sourcing Investments was born – to create a secure, trusted and independent marketplace, giving investors that crucial line of sight to local investments and teams they could not secure themselves.
His limited spare time is mostly spent with his wife and their dog, or he is at the gym. Oh, and he enjoys a bit of golf, with his modest handicap of 3, so if you’d prefer a discussion over a round of golf rather than a desk, then let him know!
Nominees three achievements
– Led a £35m London-based property fund and an experienced property investor in his own right with his own HMO and BTL portfolio
– Trained and mentored a large number of international and UK property investors on their property journey.
– Founded Sourcing Investments. Since launch in late 2015, he has led the team to help many dozens of investors fulfil their property investment ambitions, delivering returns that far exceed UK averages. By February 2019, investors had made a total of 342 property investments, representing in excess of £35M in total investments. Sourcing Investments deals are more likely to move from an offer through to a sale. This saves subscribers substantial time, money and frustration. They have set out to deliver to investors returns that they would struggle to source themselves – At October 2018, on the properties that had been completed on the platform to date, the average projected gross yield on those properties was over 14%.
