Richard Bowser- Editor of Property Investor News Magazine
Richard Bowser One of the very few independent market commentators who, from 2002 onwards, regularly warned private investors as to the very clear risk factors relating to the purchase of new-build apartments for investment. In early 2007 Richard emphatically predicted that mortgage lending would quickly become more difficult and expensive and that investors should avoid carrying excessive debt levels on low yielding property.
Roll forward just a few years and the impact of the banks’ increased risk aversion to property lending was plain to see, but back in 2007 the boom was still in progress and Richard's oft issued words of caution were foolishly ignored by many investors who remain in negative equity or faced repossession.
Over the last decade Richard has regularly spelt out to investors the inherent risk of speculative investment strategies based on low yields and excessively high loan to value borrowing. A sought after speaker at many national property investor and regional landlord events for over 15 years, Richard’s views are widely recognised and valued - most importantly of course by the thousands of regular subscribers to ‘Property Investor News’.

Who are some of the VIP Guests coming along?
Some of my VIP's tomorrow evening include:
Elliot Hughes is an entrepreneur, property developer and business owner. Having struggled in school with dyslexia and feeling university would be a losing battle he chanced a career in the Royal Navy as an aircrew officer but once the fun was over he soon realised a career in the military was a battle against his values.
Feeling that property investment would be the easier, 'get rich quick career', he entered the arena! He discovered property had its own battlefield...with little cash but lots of time and determination to succeed he became financially free, starting with short to mid-term accommodation for professionals working away from home and the student market.
From there he progressed into the development sector. Elliot feels each development is about mixing strategies to generate maximum efficiency and profit. With his partners, this has resulted in developing over 40 lettable units in the serviced accommodation arena either operating currently and in the building pipeline, together with, the purchase of a hotel, gym and restaurant complex.
Thor has been investing in property for 17 years, having bought his first property at age 19 in Australia.

“ This is where the experts meet the experts! Anybody who is looking for a wealth of information will be surrounded by a wealth of knowledgeable and very helpful people. Everybody likes to be in a position to do business. However this is one of the least "pitchy" groups. More help less people trying to flog you snake oil. I like it! ”
