A Liverpool firm that helps find buyers and secure investors for property developments is to increase its workforce by 60% as it gets set to expand in 2022.
During the past 12 months RWinvest has assisted in more than £150m in property transactions. It has forged a particularly successful partnership with Legacie Developments on schemes including the £90m Parliament Square in Liverpool.
In the New Year RWInvest will be looking to sell more than 1,650 new properties to investors in the UK and overseas. Earlier this year it opened an office in Salford Quays in Greater Manchester and is also looking to expand its presence in London.
In 2020 RWInvest has taken on 28 new people and that growth will continue in 2022 with the recruitment of a further 25 people to its team.
The business has secured investment of more than £300m for Liverpool-based Legacie alone. It is increasingly expanding its global network to attract prospective buyers from around the world. Launched in 2004, it has attracted more than £1bn into the UK investment market.
RWinvest director, Michael Gledhill, said: “After what has been a fantastic year for the company, we are absolutely delighted to announce that we will be further expanding our workforce by 30% next year.
“Similar to many companies, the pandemic has presented many challenges for us. Thankfully, our excellent team has ensured that the business thrived. Last year we recruited 28 new starters and it is testament to the positive direction we are heading as a company that we are in a position to bring even more people into our business.
“We have many exciting opportunities in the pipeline for 2022 and are anticipating another brilliant year.”
