Property and stocks and shares have been popular investment vehicles for a long time. But which one is right for you? We've rounded up the pros and cons of each to help you decide.
Property prices go up as well as down, so you might not get out what you put in. The same goes for how much rent we collect. Our forecasting tools help with the guesswork but they're not a reliable way to predict the future. Please also note that invested capital is illiquid and is not protected under the Financial Services Compensation Scheme.Ok, got it
James: I’m James. I work as an analyst for the NHS.
UOWN: How do you find the returns from UOWN?
James: Some of the peer-to-peer platforms, you can go up to like 12 percent, maybe even a little bit higher. But with property crowdfunding like UOWN, I found that it’s a bit more stable in return because they’re the kind of properties that have been rented for a long time and it’s pretty unlikely they’re going to stand empty for a student year.
UOWN: How has your experience been with UOWN?
James: Through UOWN, I’ve only been with them a couple of months but I’ve been getting the regular monthly payments and it’s looking just over six percent return on my investment for the year.
UOWN: Do you have any investment goals?
James: In the future, I would like to go buy a property myself. So it will all help towards it really, all the interest.
