At Northern Cross, one of our biggest investment pillars is diversification.

For this reason, we have partnered with several reputable property development companies based in the U.K. to enable us to fully offer our clients the opportunity to invest in property overseas, without the fear of the “unknown”.

The due diligence that we have carried out on these companies means that our clients can feel confident that they carry the same values and principles that we do here at Northern Cross.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why would I invest in property overseas when I can buy property here in South Africa?

The best way to answer this is the old saying “don’t put all your eggs in one basket”. By diversifying your property portfolio to include overseas property in a first-world country, with measured returns, you are spreading your risk and keeping your options open.

I’m a bit nervous about making such a big investment without seeing the property for myself. How involved are Northern Cross with the process?

Northern Cross will go through the whole process with you. We are happy to attend any meetings and go through the paperwork with you and your family so that any questions can be fully covered and considered by all parties involved, including the property developer. The paperwork is still passed through the Northern Cross compliance team to ensure everything is in order.

Can I buy property in different countries across Europe, or am I restricted to buying property in the only U.K.?

You can buy property across most European countries, as well as the U.K. As an investment advisory firm, we wanted to ensure our clients had the widest possible opportunity, which is why we secured partnerships with developers who offer property in countries such as Germany, France, Portugal and the U.K. Whilst many of our clients have strong ties to the U.K., we also took into consideration the wider market and potential that Europe has to offer.
