A Qualified Property Investment Adviser (QPIA®) is an essential partner for property investors, helping you to make well-considered, strategic property investment decisions.

A QPIA® can work with you to build a personalised, long-term property investment plan, that not only meets your needs and goals today, but builds the right foundation to ensure you meet your future goals and aspirations too.

Furthermore, a property investment adviser can explain the risks associated with investing and ensure your investment plan matches your risk profile.

A qualified property investment plan will usually offer recommendations for investment supported by clear evidence and reasoning as well as guidance around anticipated performance, in terms of capital growth and rental income projections.

Many people might claim to be property investment advisors, but actually are not, so be sure to look for a QPIA®.

QPIA®'s adhere to a strict Code of Conduct and only a QPIA® has the appropriate formal qualifications to provide genuine property investment advice.

Remember, good advice can make all the difference between an average property investment and a thriving one.

There are many professionals who can hold this qualification.  Here we outline the services you can expect from personal advisers and property advisers.
