We are redefining property investment

About Us

Brickowner was formed from a need to make property investment less clunky and more inclusive.

Frederick Bristol and Tobias Stone, the founders of Brickowner, came from a background in property asset management and investment.

They learned first-hand that the administrative and legal processes for onboarding individual investors were too lengthy and complex for property managers and developers to accept. This meant they were missing out on sources of funding, whilst investors were being locked out of opportunities to invest.

Brickowner’s technology cuts the time to onboard and invest in property from weeks into minutes. We provide access to historically inaccessible investment opportunities by opening up investment to experienced and high-net-worth investors. The platform also provides new onboarding prop tech solutions for asset managers and property developers.

“Our goal is to help property asset managers and developers onboard and manage their investors, whilst giving individuals access to UK property investment opportunities.”

Frederick Bristol, Co-Founder and CEO

Since Brickowner’s launch in 2017, investments have been funded with a GDV in excess of £101 million.  Over £19 million raised through the platform for property projects across the UK.

As we grow, we continue to innovate and improve our offering yet never losing sight of our goal. We have met challenges along the way making us smarter, stronger, and ever-evolving.

Risk Summary

Estimated reading time: 2 min

Due to the potential for losses, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) considers this investment to be high risk.

What are the key risks?

1. You could lose all the money you invest

• It is common for property funds to lose money over time.

2. You are unlikely to be protected if something goes wrong

• The business offering this investment is not regulated by the FCA. Protection from the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) only considers claims against failed regulated firms. Learn more about FSCS protection here.

• The Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) will not be able to consider complaints related to this firm. Learn more about FOS protection here.

3. You won't get your money back quickly

• Even if the fund you invest in is successful, it may take several years to get your money back. You are unlikely to be able to sell your investment early.

4. Don't put all your eggs in one basket

• Putting all your money into a single business or type of investment for example, is risky. Spreading your money across different investments makes you less dependent on any one to do well.

• A good rule of thumb is not to invest more than 10% of your money in high-risk investments. Learn more here.

5. The value of your investment can be reduced

• The percentage of the business that you own will decrease if the business issues more shares. This could mean that the value of your investment reduces, depending on how much the business grows. The fund is likely to issue multiple rounds of shares.

• These new shares could have additional rights that your shares don't have, such as the right to receive a fixed dividend, which could further reduce your chances of getting a return on your investment.
