Foreign Property Service Launches

A company has launched to provide assistance to IFAs who would like to give their clients foreign property investment advice.

Quy group uses specialist software to predict the investment performance of foreign properties and forecast their probable returns. The company can research and recommend foreign properties specifically for long-term investment.

The company also undertakes its own independent due diligence on each development to ensure the project is legitimate and the right ingredients are in place.

Quy director Lydia Molyneux says: “Many people do not think of consulting their IFA for advice on purchasing a property abroad. They often get caught up in the idyllic emotion of buying a second home. Our service has been created to help IFAs provide their clients with detailed forecast reports on the investment performance of properties.”
