• Get Started On Your Property Investment Journey

    You've been wanting to get into property investing or developing for a few years now. It can be daunting and costly. You've probably heard all the horror stories of things going wrong and find yourself not a stage where you've got enough money to invest yourself.

     

    The Private Equity Academy was launched to give you insights, secrets and 1-1 weekly mentoring to help you get it right the first time round whilst attracting investors with no experience or money.

  • My Journey

    Over the last 10 years of being in business selling to FTSE100 companies & working with property developer/service providers to grow, I've been able to stay on top, learn new skills and pick up secrets of HNWI (high net-worth investors). I've been featured in the BBC, spoke at 100+ events & Listed on the Top 100 Most Powerful Young Entrepreneurs In The World.

    Falling Into RE & Launching London Property Community

    How I fell into property was quite accidental, I was running my sales consultancy which specialises in Real Estate and for the first time we took on a client who was a property developer.

     

    In order to raise the bar, we launched London Property Community which started in hotel lobbies and grew to partnering with Natwest and accumulating 10,000+ members. All either investors, landlords or developers.

    My Link to Property Developments

    I came for my quarterly review meeting with the developer client and he shook my hand and said thank you. He said because of you I've been able to raise investments and get a number of sites live in a matter of months. Why don't you join me as my commercial/investor relations director and I can help you earn a lot more?

     

    So I shook his hand and the following week I got to work. Over the next year I followed him around, he became a friend and business partner, learning everything about property developing and the challenges without actually getting my hands dirty.

     

    After raising over £3m and helping him grow his portfolio to £20m+ in London & Essex I realised very quickly that this skill of raising money doesn't come easy to most. I launched Shakur Investments and leveraged my network to help other developers raise money.

    The Private Equity Academy

    The reason I set up the Private Equity Academy is so people new to the industry can leverage money that's accessible in property as well as those looking to build can attract investors to build their own portfolio and work on larger projects at twice the speed.

     

    Everything I do takes minimal hours in the week so it's perfect for the busy developers or even professionals looking to leverage networking and the money in real estate.

  • Host & Founder of London Property Community

    From the hotel lobbies of Kings Cross to one of London's fastest-growing property networks. In the space of two years we've built a 10,000+ community of developers, investors and service providers. We've partnered with banks like Natwest and leading financial institutions in Canary Wharf to provide the most value and raise investments.

    Ansar Ali

    Property Developer - Everest Construction - £20m+ Portfolio

    Abdul who I brought in as my commercial director has been vital to my success over the years. He not only helped me establish my brand and build a community but attracted over £2m+ in Joint Venture finance from numerous HNWI and Family Office investors.

     

    His commitment to my projects and authenticity in building relations with investors is the biggest reason why I'll continue to work with him.

     

    I will always vouch for his work as he brings ideas and skills as a leader to the table that will change how private equity is raised in the industry. Definitely reach out to Abdul for his mentoring and consultancy services.

    Simone Gilks

    Director - Varsity Finance

    From the moment I met with Abdul, I could appreciate not only his eloquence but his sheer ora to capture the attention of those around him.

     

    His ongoing professionalism and ability to adapt within any industry clearly means that both Abdul and his firm can work towards growing an audience to suit most firms, but with a particular lean towards the Property Market.

     

    It was therefore only a matter of time before my husband and I asked that he joins us and engages with our firm Varsity Finance, with the view to creating an impact across all social platforms and expand our clientele.

     

    So if you are looking to increase your audience and grow your business whilst still retaining that personal touch, then talk to Abdul and his team.
