We believe that investing is best enjoyed in win/win situations.
We know it is possible to invest in viable, high return property development projects with capped downsides, whilst providing a solution to one of our country’s challenges – the acute housing shortage.
We do the leg work and review hundreds of development projects to find the best ones for our investors. Leverage our expertise, assets and experience to invest in the right projects for your portfolio.
Investment Types – #1
Invest in active projects across the UK, all managed and delivered by our experienced internal developments team.
Get a fixed rate of return on your capital over the duration of an
investment cycle on a development that you choose.
Typically ranging from 18 – 24 months, our internal team will also raise
commercial finance or equity finance to complete a project. Interest is
typically delivered at the end of a term or on a yearly basis.
For an individual or consortium typically financing an entire project we offer equity-based investments. Allowing you to secure a share of the development and significantly increase your potential returns. Ranging from 18 – 24 months with pre-agreed terms on equity and profit distribution.
Investment Types – #2
Invest in high-yielding assets across the UK, that is managed and maintained by our internal asset management team.
By providing the initial seed capital for the purchase and development of a high yielding asset, our team can deliver a full hands-off portfolio building service.
From acquisition and conversion through to ongoing management, providing regular income to you.
Investing in property can be very rewarding, but it involves the following key risks:
Property prices can go down as well as up and different property types or those in different areas may be more or less susceptible to reduced or negative growth. By investing in property, there is a risk that you may not get back what you put in if property prices fall. You should not invest more money than you can afford to lose without altering your standard of living.
Any investment you make through Development Discovery is rather illiquid. There are always planned exit points at which you may choose to withdraw your capital but we don’t operate like a bank. So only consider investing capital that you don’t need urgently.
Property provides an ideal way to diversify any investments portfolio. Although it is slightly less liquid than average stocks/equities, the lack of volatility is a great way to systematically build wealth over time. With our specialised team, you can be confident your money is working hard for you and not the other way around.
You will be responsible for the payment of your own tax which may include capital gains and/or income tax. We do not provide tax advice and you should seek independent tax advice before investing if you are unsure of your position. It is your responsibility to ensure that your tax return is correct and is filed by the deadline and any tax owing is paid on time. If you are unsure how this investment will affect your tax status you must seek professional advice before you invest.

Frequently Asked Questions
Still unsure about something? Take a look at our frequently asked questions below.
The investments are in Buy-to-let and development property over a fixed period of time with a view to realising capital growth and/or income. The fixed-returns will vary per property and the level of capital growth and/or income is not guaranteed. The projected returns are shown on each property listed, along with the investment returns and terms.
The development is owned by an SPV (Special Purpose Vehicle), with one SPV holding each development property. If you are participating as an equity investor, you are purchasing shares in that SPV. Any investors participating in fixed return investments are making a loan to that company.
An SPV is a separate limited company, which operates under its own legal status, with its own asset and liability structure.
Similarly to the returns achievable, protection of investments varies from project to project. It should be noted that when making an investment your capital is at risk, however, we will do everything in our power to mitigate that risk to you as much as possible. If you are interested in what security we offer just get in touch.
Development Discovery will set up the SPV and take care of all the company management requirements. This administrative cost is included as a cost against the development, as any private property developer would do for their own portfolio.
