Work is set to get underway on one of Keystone Property Group’s largest developer-lending private rented sector (PRS) projects.


The build-to-rent (BTR) scheme, known as Holloway Head, is the group’s third Birmingham PRS project.


Over 17-storeys, Holloway Head comprises 22 studios, 261 one-bedroom and 204 two-bedroom apartments. Along with 3960 sq ft ground-floor retail space, car parking and landscaped residents’ courtyards.


In September 2019, Holloway Head was sold to Invesco in a forward funding agreement. Invesco is one of the world’s leading investment managers, controlling over £800 billion worth of assets


The homes are expected to be managed by US BTR giant Greystar. With construction of the first phase of the development predicted to begin later in 2019.


Keystone Property Group’s other Birmingham projects include Westminster Works, on which work began earlier in the year. Exited in 2018, investors were awarded an average 21% return.


Holloway Head will see the regeneration of a 1.3-acre brownfield site, which had remained vacant for 25 years. Planning permission was granted in May 2018.


Keystone Property Group CEO Desmond Conway said: “Birmingham is undergoing significant regeneration, enticing thousands to relocate to the city every year.”


“With demand rising, there’s a real need for high-quality living spaces in the city centre. That one of the world’s biggest institutional investors has purchased the development, is a testament to the calibre of our developer lending projects.”

The Maximeyes Group, one of the UKs most innovative energy companies, has acquired a significant stake in leading battery storage company, Puredrive Energy. The new strategic partnership will create a platform from which consumers can reduce their dependency upon the Grid, making substantial savings in energy costs, whilst ensuring that fuel poverty becomes a thing of the past.


Puredrive Energy is leading innovation in the battery storage sector, with the founders, Mark Millar and Stuart Storrer, who have more the 30 years of combined global experience in battery technology, known as the battery brains of Britain.


Puredrive Energy is revolutionising the way consumers source and consume electrical power, reducing their dependency on the UK’s power Grid, whilst returning savings of up to 70% to the consumer. The software being developed is unlocking greater revenue for home batteries by using machine learning to predict household load and generation, optimising responses at sub-second level. It aims to use its software to export and import at best prices, as well as earn money by providing frequency services to the Electricity System Operator. Puredrive is also the creator of the PureStorage community where households can come together to aggregate their capacity and be a part of a Virtual Power Plant, creating shared revenues and benefits.


Shamir Jiwa, CEO and founder of The Maximeyes Group, comments, “Puredrive Energy really is at the forefront of innovation in energy. The team have and continue to create the smartest storage system in the market, regardless of where and how energy is generated, we know that it will need to be stored. Just look at how battery technology has revolutionised the telecoms industry by enabling mobile phones, we are now at the genesis of the next generation storage revolution for households. It is our belief that smart battery systems will be as prevalent as double glazing in the next 10 years, and we are positioning ourselves in a sector where we can build a leading global brand starting in the UK.”


Mark Millar, CEO and Co-founder of Puredrive Energy comments, “With the Grid struggling to meet increased demands from new technology, such as electric and autonomous vehicles, domestic and commercial battery storage systems herald the future, providing much-needed additional power to meet these rising demands. In addition, we are one of the few battery suppliers who design and manufacture in the UK. The new strategic partnership with The Maximeyes Group will help fund and support the growth of battery storage solutions in the domestic, commercial and off-grid sectors in the UK.”

The leader in worldwide golf reservations and technology plays a key role in the growth of the €270 million Irish golf tourism market


London, United Kingdom — 17 September 2019 — Following the success of its European expansion earlier this year, golfscape announced today its launch in Ireland. The fast-growing golf tech business has integrated with multiple courses on the Emerald Isle to expose the region’s world-class facilities to an international user base. The first and only worldwide tee time booking platform is making golf easier to book for both local and international players by moving courses online to increase accessibility while supporting the area’s rapid growth in golf tourism.


Earlier this year, the Irish Times highlighted the importance of golf tourism in a feature revealing that more than 200,000 overseas visitors play golf in Ireland every year. Golf plays a significant role in Irish tourism, resulting in considerable increases in the hospitality sector. International golfers are estimated to contribute almost €270 million to the Irish economy, with up to 50% of them coming from the United States.


“We are driving our international user base to Ireland and accelerating the growth of overseas visitors to the area. We are supported by a global team of talent that continues expanding to benefit our partner courses,” said golfscape CEO Raghad Mukhaimer. “Our unique expertise will play a key role in promoting the region abroad to achieve Ireland’s goal of growing international tourism. Players all over the world can book golf online as easily as they book hotels and flights on Expedia.”


Established in 2013, VC-funded golfscape has seen huge success in implementing its cutting-edge technology solutions in Africa, Near East, and Asia-Pacific. With over 400,000 users from more than 200 countries, golfscape is positioned to add value to its partner golf courses and provide golfers in Ireland and around the world with a more seamless, secure, and easy way of booking golf.


golfscape has received tremendous support from the region’s golf courses including one of Ireland’s leading golf properties – Fota Island Resort – partnering in the launch of the Irish market. Earlier this month, golfscape invited US golf sensation Katie Kearney to review the top golfing destination. In collaboration with world-class Portmarnock Hotel & Golf Links, the journalist and influencer of over 300,000 followers helped introduce the campaign to promote golf in Ireland.


About golfscape:


golfscape was founded in 2013 with a vision to revolutionize the golf industry with technology for the modern golfer. Today, golfscape is the industry leader providing its reservations and operations services in over 30 golf destinations across Europe, Africa, Near East, and Asia-Pacific. golfscape's OS platform delivers course operators next-generation tee sheets, member and visitor mobile apps, as well as revenue-generating technologies and services.

<![CDATA[ Lack of money will stymie government fuel poverty review ]]> https://pressat.co.uk/releases/lack-of-money-will-stymie-government-fuel-poverty-review-9195ca82bdd00a2d91449d0233c8a982 https://pressat.co.uk/releases/lack-of-money-will-stymie-government-fuel-poverty-review-9195ca82bdd00a2d91449d0233c8a982 Tuesday 17 September, 2019

A lack of funding to tackle statutory targets on fuel poverty in England could have damaging long term consequences, according to the End Fuel Poverty Coalition.


The Coalition's response to the Government's Fuel Poverty Strategy Review broadly welcomes the consultation, but warns there are major areas which need improvement.


Fuel poverty means that a household is forced below the poverty line as a result of the cost of using energy in their home. Using the current measurement, at least 2.53m households are in fuel poverty in England alone.


The Strategy review proposes widening this definition to include all low income households living in cold homes (the ‘Low Income, Low Energy Efficiency’ indictor). The government believes this will better incentivise energy efficiency. This increases the number of fuel poor households in England from 2.55 million to 3.66 million: an increase of 44%.


The Coalition's response argues that the most crucial action that Government can take is to support proposals for a new ‘Clean Growth Fuel Poverty Challenge Fund.’ This would help the poorest households living in the worst F and G-rated homes, mainly in hard to heat homes.


The Coalition's detailed response to the Strategy Review also calls for additional improvements, to create a longer term framework for energy efficiency. These include:


Better regulation of the private sectorMake the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) Scheme more accessible to those in greatest needIntroduce more locally led, area-based schemes to improve energy efficiency, backed up by a national “safety net”Ensure all improvements are of the highest and safest qualityExamine new financial measures to improve energy efficiency across the wider housing stock such as stamp duty reforms, zero interest loans, etc.

Dr Brenda Boardman, Emeritus Fellow at Oxford University's Environmental Change Institute, and one of the core authors of the Coalition’s response, commented:


"Fuel poverty policy has been in the doldrums for several months, so that this consultation is welcome evidence that the Government wants to revive policy.

"There is recognition of the crucial importance of energy efficiency improvements, but no statements yet of appropriate funds. And yet there needs to be prompt, positive action to upgrade all the fuel poor in F and G-rated properties in the next 15 months, as promised.

"The growing emphasis on regulation, for instance of the privately rented sector, is encouraging, but still depends on enforcement to be effective. We believe this is a great opportunity for the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy to be strong and really champion the fuel poor."


Peter Smith, Director of Policy and Research at National Energy Action (NEA), said:


"Without more ambitious action 160,000 fuel-poor households could still be living in the least efficient homes by 2020, with the Government way off-track towards meeting its 2030 statutory target. As well as the devastating impacts cold homes have on their occupants, the delayed cost of inaction extend to all of us.

"Addressing fuel poverty is a crucial part of meeting the new stretching carbon targets. Without a big improvement in current efforts, the government will not meet its climate change targets. Poorer households will benefit the least from energy policies, whilst paying a higher share of the costs, despite making lower contributions to our overall emissions.

"But it doesn’t have to be this way. Ending fuel poverty is in our grasp through a National Energy Efficiency Programme, fully funded support for those in fuel poverty and reform of the private rented sector."

<![CDATA[ Polo to sue Plinian ]]> https://pressat.co.uk/releases/polo-to-sue-plinian-b83533ce3efd38e9edd298fec3e18130 https://pressat.co.uk/releases/polo-to-sue-plinian-b83533ce3efd38e9edd298fec3e18130 Monday 16 September, 2019

Polo Resources Limited (AIM: POL), the multi-sector investment company with interests in oil, gold, coal, copper, phosphate, lithium, iron and vanadium, advises that it is experiencing difficulty recovering a loan amounting to USD4,182,717.28 (with interest calculated to 22 July 2019) from Plinian Guernsey Limited (“Plinian Guernsey”), a company owned by Plinian Capital Limited (“Plinian Capital”) and both controlled by Bradford A. Mills.


Efforts by the Company to recover this outstanding loan including demand letters from Polo and the Company’s lawyers to the principals of Plinian Capital and Plinian Guernsey have been futile.


Polo was notified that the “sole shareholder” of Plinian Guernsey had voluntarily put Plinian Guernsey in liquidation and that as an identified “potential stakeholder”, Polo was invited to provide “proof of debt owed”. Polo has responded to the joint voluntary liquidators as well as informed that, as noted in an RNS made by West African Minerals Corporation on 11 February 2016, Plinian Guernsey had transferred its assets to Plinian Capital, which in Polo's view may otherwise have been used to repay sums outstanding under agreements with Polo. The directors of Polo will, in the interest of prudence, provide a full impairment against the recoverability of the outstanding loan.


Details of the agreements with Plinian were contained in a Polo RNS on 22 March 2012 entitled “Appointment of Plinian Capital Limited as Operator of Nimini Gold Project - Plinian Acquires 10 per cent Interest for US$2.5 million”. Amongst others, Polo announced that it had provided Plinian Guernsey a loan amounting to US$2.5 million, accruing interest at 3 per cent above LIBOR per annum, and that Plinian Capital was appointed operator of the project.


While Polo views the actions of Plinian as an intentional manoeuvre to evade liability, the door remains open to negotiating a settlement pending the preparation to commence court proceedings against Plinian Guernsey and its principals to pursue the recovery of the outstanding sums on behalf of its shareholders.

<![CDATA[ Hedge Against Equities ]]> https://pressat.co.uk/releases/hedge-against-equities-3c13205380687d62d964fd0b01a05b6e https://pressat.co.uk/releases/hedge-against-equities-3c13205380687d62d964fd0b01a05b6e Thursday 12 September, 2019

With the equity markets worldwide looking slightly over valued v's the fundamentals, and a plethora of negative scenarios looming which could potentially be triggered via a multitude of reasons such as Brexit, the trade wars, underperforming economies, and many other variables- should an investor look to hedge their exposure to a potential fall in the equities markets?

Whether you're looking to move into cash, gold, bonds, crypto or land- diversification at this stage is probably a prudent move.

Another way to diversify one's risk is to allocate capital to a more 'absolute' strategy. In other words- a strategy that can both buy and 'short sell' the markets, meaning regardless of the market climate- there are opportunities to yield a return.

One such strategy has been designed by MSI Consultancy in a 'trade copy' style which means it's very simple for investors of all investment levels and experience to replicate.For those of you who are new to this type of investing- 'Trade copying' is becoming a more prominent option for investors as they become more sophisticated, and less trusting of the old guard of investment managers.

Many investors are questioning why would they pay large management fees, and in a period of underperformance be forced to pay large redemption fees, or face a redemption period if they request the return of their capital. Or worst still- be locked into the underperforming funds like the Woodford situation which made headlines throughout 2019 even though it was a favorite of many beforehand.

"Trade Copying' provides a very different, and some would say- a very refreshing alternative.In simple terms, an investor is able to align their own portfolio with that of a successful trader or asset manager. The trader/manager will be trading their own portfolio and risking their own capital, and when the trader/manager takes a position in the markets on their own portfolio, the exact same trade is implemented on the investor portfolio per GBP under management automatically.

Probably one of the reason's why this sector in the investment world is gaining the current traction that it is, is because the fees are normally earned via a monthly subscription (which can be switched on or off at any time), or via performance. 

Ultimately, the client retains control of their own account at all times, and the investment offers complete transparency.

At first, the market pioneers were companies like Etoro and they aimed their offering at a slightly more novice trader/influencer to build the accounts to follow, but now- the institutions are moving into the market place, and specialist strategy designers are beginning to host their own portfolios.

One of these specialists is MSI Consultancy, who have launched a number of 'copy portfolios' for investors to follow hosted at various Asset Managers.

The Consultancy in question typically deal with asset managers, hedge funds, and other financial institutions, but they've now entered the world of 'trade copying' which means investors can have exposure to their strategies without the expense and lock in periods associated with vanilla asset manager portfolios.

The Multi Market portfolio launched in 2019 is gaining momentum and recognition in a challenging market climate. From reviewing the composition of their strategies it's clear they offer a very diversified portfolio with this proposition, and one which certainly ticks that 'absolute' box. The strategy provides exposure to worldwide equities, commodities, and the FX arena, and their information sheet suggests the Asset Manager who facilitate the strategy place hard stops on the portfolio to reduce the potential downside. The Asset Manager charges a profit fee AFTER the client has accrued 10%.

With the experts moving into the market place, and offering solid propositions like MSI Consultancy's flagship 'trade copy' strategy- trade copying might just become the investment of choice. Particularly in a market climate right now, where a hedge against equities seems like the right approach.

<![CDATA[ Brexit a Bigger Threat to Children's Future than Climate Change According to 1 in 5 Parents ]]> https://pressat.co.uk/releases/brexit-a-bigger-threat-to-childrens-future-than-climate-change-according-to-1-in-5-parents-6cc2db19a36431cf3b249263f0440179 https://pressat.co.uk/releases/brexit-a-bigger-threat-to-childrens-future-than-climate-change-according-to-1-in-5-parents-6cc2db19a36431cf3b249263f0440179 Thursday 12 September, 2019

Parents have plenty to worry about. But 1 in 5 parents with children under the age of 18 believe the biggest threat to their children’s futures is Brexit.



That’s according to a recent survey carried out by Perpetual Fostering, which polled 2,000 UK Mums and Dads about the future for their children.



Brexit didn’t poll highest on the list of threats, however. The top spot went to the “rising cost of living,” with 41% citing this as their biggest concern. Climate change took 23% of the vote.

Lisa Witter, Manager at Perpetual Fostering, comments:



“There are so many things for parents and carers to worry about! Climate change and the political landscape are both concerns for many. But clearly parents are predominantly concerned with the immediate and clear threat of the rising cost of living and how that will have an impact on their children.



Ever topical, Brexit wasn’t too far off climate change in terms of how parents rate the threat. Much of this could be related to the sheer uncertainty of it all and the fact none of us really know what will happen yet.”
