For the first half of 2019, Whitehall Capital was almost fully invested for most of the period and delivered a return of 5.2%.
“We are really thrilled to have recorded our strongest quarter since inception,” said Anthony Bodenstein, CEO at Whitehall Capital (pictured above).

“Since its establishment, the fund has delivered a net return of 18.15%, significantly outperforming many stock markets and hedge funds.
“We recognised back in 2015 that banks’ decisions to pull out from or reduce their exposure to the property sector, combined with the introduction of regulatory requirements, such as Basel III, was resulting in a lower supply of bank financing to real estate market participants and, in turn, more expensive loans.
“We set out to alleviate this issue and are proud of our achievements so far — the fund has completed 55 loans to date, and we are continuing to rapidly expand our loan book.”
