We charge an property Investment fee of 1.0% of total value and a performance fee of 20% of returns at the time of sale after the investor has made 8% annual returns. For e.g. If a property is bought for Rs. 100 and the investor makes Rs. 105 at the time of sale we DO NOT charge any performance fees as we believe we were not able to deliver returns greater than the risk free rate. If for the same property the investor makes Rs. 115, we charge 20% of Rs. 7 (115-108) Rs. 1.4. This way our fees are aligned with investor returns.
