The Plan

  • The developer acquired the property as a cleared site in July 2012 and obtained planning consent for a 42,000 sqft development comprising five townhouses and four apartments.
  • The building is almost finished with practical completion forecast by early 2017. Therefore there is minimal construction or development risk because the property is only months from completion.
  • Your Investment will be used to partially refinance an existing £2.8m bond issued by the developer.
  • The developer has already pre-sold one townhouse and all four apartments.
  • At the point the pre-sales complete, YRPL’s borrowings will stand at 47% of the value of its remaining properties.
  • The four remaining townhouses will be launched for sale in early 2017.
  • If they achieve forecast sale prices, the sale of three of these four townhouses will generate sufficient proceeds to redeem your capital and deliver the return.

Investment Structure

  • The property is owned by YRPL, a joint venture between Finchatton and another developer, both specialists in the development of luxury residential property in prime central London.
  • The property is being funded by a combination of bank debt and bonds. A bond is a debt investment in which an investor loans money to a company. A new subsidiary company of CapitalRise, 38 YR plc, has been incorporated to issue bonds to investors. 38 YR plc will use the proceeds of these bonds from investors to partly refinance the existing bonds that have been issued by the developer.
  • 38 YR plc will not carry on any other commercial activity. The directors of this company will (through CapitalRise) administer and enforce the terms of the bonds issued by 38 YR plc.
  • The investment is structured as deep discounted bonds. The bonds will be issued at a discount to the nominal amount and (if sufficient proceeds are generated from the sale of the property) at the point of redemption of the bonds, investors will receive proceeds equal to the issue price of the bonds and a return equivalent to 10% per annum, compounded annually.
  • 38 YR plc is the beneficiary of a second legal charge over the property. In any forced sale of the property, the holder of the first legal charge will recover its investment first.
  • 38 YR plc is not required to withhold UK income tax on this investment and so returns will be paid gross. Income tax may be payable by investors on any return on the investments; Investors should take their own tax advice from an appropriately qualified professional.


As with all investments you should carefully consider the key risks involved which include:

Risks Mitigation
Liquidity risk – You need to be prepared to hold this investment for the full term. We can help you to try to sell your investment if you want to exit early but this may be difficult and a sale is not guaranteed. There is a company which may be willing to purchase bonds from bondholders who wish to achieve an early exit. However it would not be possible to guarantee that such purchases would take place at a particular price and the price achieved is likely to be at a discount.
Capital & income risk – Your capital is at risk and the income is not guaranteed. 38 YR plc has the benefit of a second legal charge against the property which means that in the event that the developer cannot repay your capital and accrued return, the investors may be able to force the sale of the property. However, the outcome is uncertain and there is a risk that you may not recover the full amount due. The bank loan is secured against the property with a first legal charge so in any forced sale of the property, the bank will recover any amounts due to it first.
Market risk – If the market for central London residential property deteriorates, it may not be possible to sell the property at the price currently projected and/or there could be delay in the sale. The property value would need to fall by 39% in order for your capital and accrued return to be at risk.
Construction risk – Construction works to the property may be delayed by events outside the control of the developer such as contractor insolvency or mismanagement. The works are due to be complete by early 2017, so the build programme has only a few months left to run. Any potential delays would therefore be unlikely to be material in the context of the term of the investment.
Compensation scheme – The Financial Services Compensation Scheme does not cover poor investment performance. You cannot claim compensation if your investment does not perform as expected, unless it results from us or Gallium not discharging our obligations to you. The FSCS would cover amounts owed to our customers in the event of our insolvency, up to a maximum of £50,000 per customer.
