High Street Group Investment Review
We have over 60 years’ experience in almost every aspect of financial services and UK property investment. Our key advisors have advised the boards of Legal & General, Sun Alliance and Laser UK (BNP Parisba) as well as working with every major bank in the UK. With low interest rates high level investors are seeking more effective ways to increase income and or diversify a portfolio. Loan Notes are becoming more popular and can be very attractive to the appropriate investor.
This kind of investment has in the past only been available to ‘institutions’ or those ‘in the know’ but the internet is changing this and Loan Notes are becoming more widely known. The only way to sort the ‘wheat from the chaff’ is via competent due diligence but this can be very time consuming for usually very busy investors.
If you are seeking the ‘right property investment’ then we can at least narrow down the field and reduce your workload.
We are pleased to say we have partnered with the High Street Group because we found them to be way ahead of the rest of this property Loan Note sector. We are proud to be a registered agent of The High Street Group and if you are a property investor then this Loan Note should certainly be considered as part of your portfolio.
Why Invest in The High Street Group?
With any due diligence you should always consider who are the people running the company and what is their track record. Gary Forrest was well known in the property and financial sector before setting up The High Street Group in 2006 in Newcastle. Being a keen investor you will know the recession started in 2007 and Gary Forrest had to work smarter and be creative in a very difficult property market. Starting in specialist commercial bridging loans he had vision others did not and saw an opening in the direct property development finance issuing Loan Notes.
Slowly but surely The High Street Group has grown by adding to its Property Development Team with many decades of experience to call on. By moving into the Construction area they have been able to reduce the common risk factors involved when out-sourcing major construction work. The projects have grown and grown under Gary Forrest and he has a reputation for delivering major projects. The recent diversifications into Property Rental Schemes (PRS), Hospitality and Roof-Top/Attic Conversions have added hugely to the ongoing success of The High Street Group under Gary Forrest’s direction.

For capital rolled over the capital can be used to expand the Rooftop Extension or Private Rental Sector (PRS).
Why Private Rental Schemes?
- In the past ten years, the number of UK residents renting property has doubled, and roughly 20% of UK households (as high as 30% in London) are in private rented accommodation.
- It is estimated that a third of these tenants will continue to rent, due to the rising cost of home ownership. Research suggests that one in three millennials (adults born between the early 1980s and 2000s) will stay in private renting beyond retirement.
- It is estimated that the Build to Rent Sector could drive property investment to £70bn by 2022, with the potential to each at least 240,000 homes built for rent by 2030
