Craig is an entrepreneur who has travelled the globe extensively. He has been involved in business for over 27 years, many of which have been in property renovation and investment. Over the last decade, he has become very active in the UK property market by both investing and selling on to like-minded buy-to-let investors. He enjoys what he does at Propwealth as it incorporates property investment, people and travel!
Craig says, “We are passionate about investing in good property that generates an income, as well as giving others the opportunity to invest in their own cash-generating properties. It is a great way to build a retirement fund and gives us the freedom that is so crucial for our lifestyle.”
Anthony started his first business while still at school and developed it further whilst studying Bachelor of Arts at the University of Cape Town. Having been an entrepreneur for over 25 years, he is as passionate about property now as he was when he first began. He invested at a very young age and quickly understood that property is the best way to generate cash flow and generate wealth. Whilst many people were buying and selling at the time, Anthony realised that the more favourable option was to hold on to the property whenever possible and to never sell. This concept has allowed him to develop a cash-generating residential portfolio in the United Kingdom and South Africa.
Anthony says , “My objective is to see our investors build up portfolios that work with the anticipated yields. We cannot think of a better way to generate a passive cash income for both the investors and ourselves.”
