Matthew graduated with an economics degree from the University of Manchester in 1999 and then worked in finance for several years as a qualified investment manager. At the age of 27, he founded a company called Kin which traced missing heirs to unclaimed inheritance all over the world.
Matthew bought his first investment property in 2005 and made some shrewd investments in the middle of the credit crisis in 2009. Having tripled his equity in only two years, he began to think about the potential of having his own property business.
With a steady source of capital from the heir hunting business, Matthew founded Opulen and began buying property with a JV partner in 2012. Matthew targeted Reading and built a substantial HMO portfolio over an 18-month period, finishing by refurbishing a new home for each partner in London. The end value of these projects was £14m.
In 2014, following the announcement to extend Crossrail, Reading became very popular and the portfolio delivered capital gains as well as good yields. The portfolio was sold in March 2016 as Opulen’s focus shifted towards property development in London.
Matthew will be sharing his story on how he got started in property, how and why he built his portfolio in Reading, and finally his transition towards property development in London.
Matthew will be discussing a broad range of topics including house prices, interest rates, the property cycle, sourcing deals, raising finance, systems & tools and always packs plenty of content into his presentations so do not miss this event.
