Finance and Auctions Update

Mark Stokes: Commercial conversions and developments –

As an engineer, Mark’s eye for detail will be apparent as he shares some of his past experiences, current strategies, and future opportunities, so whether you are a seasoned commercial to residential property developer or just starting out, Mark will be sharing case studies, tips and due diligence that will help you approach this strategy with your eyes wide open to the potential and the pitfalls helping you to be successful.

Mark retired from corporate life after 26 years running companies around the world in large scale global infrastructure programmes and in the construction, data center, energy and retail sectors, deciding then to pursue his parallel passion for entrepreneurship and also supporting our younger generation to enter adulthood with abundance, contribution, and choice.

Mark’s current interests include businesses in commercial property conversion & development where he has over 150 apartments in process at circa £30m GDV with an additional pipeline that is growing steadily. He is also a Trustee of nhis SSAS which is actively investing in commercial property.

Jay Howard – AuctionHouse London

Will Stokes- The Co-Creative

Ranjan Bhattarcharya 

Mahfuz Rahman- Ronald Fletcher Baker LLP

Ranjan Bhattarcharya

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.
