Quanta Loans – over £34 million of property purchased over the last 5 years.
Quanta Loans launched on the Crowdstacker platform five years ago and since then the investment has gone from strength to strength. The team, headed by Quanta CEO and property expert Robby Du Toit, has purchased a total of 257 UK residential properties, with the funds raised, over the last five years. Each time Quanta sells a property, it reuses the funds to purchase new properties and so far over £34milion of UK property has been purchased.*
A strategic approach to COVID-19
We spoke to Quanta CEO Robby Du Toit about the company’s approach during Covid and the effect of lockdown on the property market “The impacts of Covid on the property market initially were substantial but we adopted a conservative approach and halted all new purchases between April and June 2020. Since resuming purchases in June 2020 we have seen a stronger than expected movement within the residential sector and new purchases are now close to pre lockdown levels, although overall we do expect less purchases to be completed compared to 2019. Sales have also resumed to pre-lockdown levels which is a very positive sign of the property market bouncing back.”
Quanta Loans - a unique approach
Quanta provides regular updates to investors, via the Crowdstacker dashboard, about the properties it has purchased and sold along with details of the properties. Where needed, Quanta has been able to transform properties with new bathrooms and kitchens, as well as landscaping, decorating and other repairs.
Over £1m in interest paid to investors
Since Quanta Loans launched on the Crowdstacker platform in 2015, over £1m in interest has been paid along with over £5.6m of capital repayments to investors. Investors holding this investment in their Innovative Finance ISA (IFISA) since 6th April 2016 or those eligible for the Personal Savings Allowance (PSA) have been able to benefit from these interest payments tax-free. Quanta Loans offered the chance to choose from two interest rates – 5.75% p.a. for an 18-month term or 6.8% p.a. for a 3-year term.
As with any investing, your capital is at risk when you lend to businesses and past performance is not an indicator of future performance. Tax treatment depends on individual circumstances and may be subject to change in the future.
