MEDICAL REAL ESTATE IN THE USA A HIT AMONG SOUTH AFRICANS WANTING A DIFFERENT DIVERSIFICATION STRATEGY.
Moneyweb’s Ryk van Niekerk talks to OrbVest CEO, Martin Freeman, in New York.
"RYK VAN NIEKERK: South Africans really like property and … want to invest in property. I think many people understand the models, the business model behind such investments, but there are many ways and options available to South African investors to invest in offshore property. What makes OrbVest different to other real estate investment options?
MARTIN FREEMAN: Great question, and I think that for South Africans we really are a viable solution. I’ll tell you the reason why – it’s because, like your listeners, I was in their shoes. You don’t know where to put your money. You don’t know who to invest it with. We’re a team of well-known businessmen in South Africa.
We specifically wanted exactly what your listeners want, which is just to find a place to put our money and notes safely. Hence the reason why we’ve been doing this for six years. We help people with a couple of clicks of a button. Literally you go to OrbVest.com … and you register. Our team, based in Cape Town and Centurion, will help you finalise the process.You invest your money; you’ve then become an owner in a building. It’s transparent. It’s easy. It doesn’t mean there’s any hidden fees. It’s not like investing into a Reit [real estate investment trust] where you don’t know what’s actually going on or if your investment is going to go up or down. And it is so consistent, over five years. I think that’s the reason why we have shown such significant growth, not only in South Africa but in 10 countries."
