We are a London based family office
How We Operate
WestOne Capital Group is a multifaceted family office focusing on residential property opportunities within the UK.
We invest our own money into the equity portion of each property opportunity. However, should we believe there is a decent opportunity, we will often make our various connections aware of the said opportunity and allow them to decide whether or not to share the equity responsibility with us?
Using our wealth of knowledge from decades of experience, opportunities are isolated and analysed in depth. Should our analysis deem the chance to be creditworthy, then the cleanest, most risk-mitigating exit is outlined and soft enquires are made to ensure the exit is possible and primed.
Alongside being open to having Equity Partners, we regularly enter into Joint Ventures with Developers and Contractors, assisting them with our knowledge and balance sheet. The ultimate aim of every deal is to mitigate as much risk as possible. By amalgamating our expertise with local partners, we decrease our potential risk and increase our potential return.
