Dualinvest available on six major Sipp platforms


Dualinvest, a new residential property fund distributed by Smith & Williamson, has been approved by six major Sipp platforms.

The platforms are AJ Bell (including AJ Bell Platinum Sipp, Sipp Centre, Sipp Deal, and Skandia), Alliance Trust, Rowanmoor Pensions, Sipp Choice, Standard Life (including Fidelity’s FundsNetwork Sipp), and Suffolk Life.

Dualinvest, launched last month, is the first UK residential property fund based on a co-ownership model. It will buy 65 per cent stakes in residential property portfolios, with the corporate landlords retaining the other 35 per cent. The landlords will continue to let the properties and manage the sub-lettings.

The fund receives two years’ rent – 13.5 per cent – from the landlord upfront, which investors receive as soon as the fund closes. After two years, the property is sold or refinanced at current market value. Investors receive 15 per cent of any upside, with 30 per cent downside protection.

Derek Uittenbroek of Smith & Williamson tax efficient solutions says: “We are delighted that Dualinvest is now available for clients to invest in via their Sipps. Dualinvest’s co-investment model makes it a uniquely attractive way for investors to gain exposure to residential property, while reducing the risks and complexities that such an investment would usually involve. Investors get their income upfront, rather than having to worry about rent collection or occupancy rates. Meanwhile, the downside safeguard shields them from fluctuations in the market, while still allowing them to enjoy a share of any potential gain”.

Dualinvest is managed by Harvey Shulman, who has more than 20 years’ experience in property management and investment.

Smith & Williamson is working with a number of other Sipp providers to obtain approval for the fund.
