Ranjan has been a regular speaker at the Property Investor Show since 2003.
Ranjan bought his first investment property in 1991 having just graduated from University. With no cash of his own, he had no choice but to structure the deal to be a no money down purchase. Ever since buying income generating property with little money down, has been the ‘corner-stone’ of his investment strategy.
He continued investing in property through the 1990’s as a ‘side-line’ to his career in the City as a Management Consultant with Accenture and taking a career break to study for an MBA at the Cranfield School Of Management.
In 2001, despite loving his day-job, Ranjan quit to setup his property company which focuses on developing residential and commercial property for rental.
Ranjan invests in property in London which is arguably one of the most fiercely competitive property investment markets in the world. As such London tends to be the place where the most innovative investment strategies start out and in time, ripple out across the country.
