FinTech start-up launches new digital property investment platform

Feb 28, 2017 - Blog

Apadmi Ventures is excited to announce the launch of a new service from one of its portfolio companies, Holiday Crowd. The FinTech start-up, based in London, allows investors to build a portfolio of stocks in a variety of different holiday properties across the UK.

From a minimum of £1,000, investors can own shares in a holiday property, each exclusively selected to provide the potential for strong rental income and capital appreciation over time.

Holiday Crowd is a great example of how digital transformation can be used to innovate traditional industries such as property investment. Traditionally, a large deposit is required for investment across the holiday home sector. The opportunity with Holiday Crowd provides those with less financial resource with a much more accessible asset, and in turn offers ROI and use of the property through online bookings with their exclusive partner, Sykes Cottages.

Apadmi Ventures CEO, Howard Simms, sits on the Holiday Crowd board of directors, which between them have over 25 years’ experience in holiday property investment and management.

With over 18 years’ experience in scaling technology companies, and as a graduate of the Goldman Sachs Ambassador Programme, Howard provides valuable insight to start-ups across the UK through his mentorship with Business Growth Hub. He also sits on the board of the Manchester Tech Trust.

Howard comments, “I’m pleased to announce the launch of Apadmi Ventures’ latest investment opportunity, Holiday Crowd. The business provides a great service for those that do not have the capital needed to own their own holiday property outright. It allows much needed flexible asset management, and allows investors to handpick investments in order to diversify their portfolio.

“The growth of Holiday Crowd is great example of how technology can aid start-ups and disrupt traditional business models across the UK.”
