Mayad Rassam, Senior Consultant at Vedanta Hedging, was asked by Property Week magazine to write about ‘Hedging vs Speculating’ for Property Investors. The article can be found here: Vedanta Hedging article in Property Week by M Rassam Sept 2014
Mayad talks about the importance of hedging being aligned to the property strategy, and not vice-versa. It is important to assess loan and facility covenants, the future plans for the property, flexibility required, and much more.
In the article, Mayad refers to research by DTZ about the estimate of mis-selling by Banks to be as high as £10bn http://www.vedantahedging.com/vedanta-hedging-collyer-bristow-quoted-in-dtz-funding-gap-paper/
Mayad also cites a recent example where Vedanta Hedging assisted Camden Market with their hedging strategy http://www.vedantahedging.com/vedanta-hedging-advises-camden-market-235m-refinance/
