Investment Approach

Hearthsone Investments

Hearthstone Investments believes that when it comes to investing in UK residential property, the best value comes from purchasing properties that can continually add value to he Fund over the long term, not short-term gains. We call this a ‘buy and hold’ strategy.

The aim of the Fund is to exceed the returns of average UK House Prices across England, Scotland and Wales. Read more

Hearthstone Investment Profile

The housing market has seen a strong recovery in recent months but the latest rises are not a flash in the pan; over the 42 years to December 2012, residential property has comfortably outperformed commercial property, equities, gilts and cash with an average total return of just under 14% a year. Despite that superior performance, virtually the only way for investors to get exposure to it has been through direct investment –either by buying a property to live in or to rent out as a buy-to-let. It was that gap in the market which led to the creation of Hearthstone Investments in 2010 and, two years later, the launch of its TM Hearthstone Residential Property fund, one of the few regulated funds investing in the residential property market.
