New property asset manager launches to support HNW investors


A new algorithm-led asset management business, SPI Capital, has launched to support investors to build residential property portfolios in the GBP1 million to GBP20 million bracket.The business has secured seed funding and aims to manage GBP250million PRS assets over the next three-five years.

The business, which invests across the North of England and Oxford-Cambridge Arc, is underpinned by market-leading technologies and aims to transform the way investors access stable, hands-off returns from residential property while providing quality key worker housing.

SPI Capital is spearheaded by real estate specialists Anna Clare Harper, Ruth McCarthy and Damien Fogg.

CEO Anna Clare Harper, is a leading real estate strategist and author. MD, Ruth McCarthy, is the former Head of Real Estate at a top 100 UK law firm. CIO Damien Fogg is a Chartered Building Surveyor and former financial advisor. 

Together, the trio has delivered more than GBP4 billion real estate transactions and managed upwards of 5,000 properties. Their experience spans law, risk management, institutional investment, financial advice, restructuring and strategy, advising global banks, institutional investors, private equity firms and public bodies.

CEO, Anna Clare Harper, says: “SPI Capital was created to support investors looking to build their own residential portfolio in the GBP1million – GBP20million bracket. Whilst there are plenty of funds in the real estate sector, there are few options for investors who want to create their own portfolio, whilst avoiding the hassle. Not everyone has the know-how or time to invest independently.

“Residential property performed well throughout 2020, despite market upheaval and uncertainty. It will continue to be an attractive investment type for many. It is now harder than ever to invest independently, due to a growing burden of regulations favouring a more professional approach.”
