The Convent: Grade II listed Hotel in the Cotswolds – International Commercial Investment (ICI) set to launch its first Crowdfunding Investment Opportunity

by International Commercial Investment on March 1, 2014

A high-risk approach to investment is not for everyone, which is why International Commercial Investment (ICI) is launching a new, secure investment opportunity for its clients.

Investors seeking low risk, high yield returns are now invited to participate in a relatively new form of investment opportunity in a boutique hotel in the Cotswolds, The Convent Hotel & Spa.  

Beyond Boutique Hotels is the brainchild of Matthew Roberts and Frazer Fearnhead, the driving forces behind the highly successful boutique hotel Babington House in Somerset.  By increasing cash flow, through ‘crowdfunding’, Beyond Boutique Hotels are significantly more profitable than traditionally run hotels.

Crowdfunding, which has grown in popularity over the last two years, involves the coming together, or ‘crowding’, of a number of people who share a common interest. It has been used as a form of international commercial investment to fund projects as diverse as disaster relief, artistic ventures, political campaigns and innovation development.

Hotel investment is becoming increasingly popular with investors because of three very important reasons: because of its ‘crowd-funded’ structure a relatively small commercial investment can achieve the kind of returns usually only found in large investment schemes; the increased cash flow in the hotels themselves cuts overheads and makes the hotel significantly more profit than that of a hotel run on traditional lines; and finally the booking model utilised is unique, in that the availability is marketed directly to niche organisations who require regular block bookings, maximising occupancy rates, reducing marketing budgets and reducing the level of staff required.

Typically, for investors looking for a safe commercial investment, yields can be up to 20% per year and an exit is assured if they require. The Convent Hotel and Spa, in the picturesque Cotswolds, is the first of many such Boutique Hotels planned in discreet locations around the UK being offered by International Commercial Investment, which will set the model for this unique and lucrative type of commercial investment.
