Meet the team

We want to make property investment accessible to everyone.

Our aim is to meet changing consumer preferences by offering competitive property backed share and loan investments online.

Property tends to be an illiquid investment so to tackle that we offer the UK's first exchange allowing trading of both property related shares and loans in one place.

We are thrilled to be part of the changing face of property investment and we hope you enjoy investing through British Pearl.
