What does Castle Trust do with the money you invest?
To generate your investment returns, Castle Trust uses the majority of the funds you invest to make loans to UK residential property owners (including landlords) secured by mortgage. The balance is held by Castle Trust in cash instruments to provide appropriate levels of liquidity to the business.
Castle Trust receives repayments on its lending comprising a pre-determined share in either price growth of the mortgaged property or the Halifax House Price Index, and in some cases interest. These repayments and any returns on cash instruments held enable Castle Trust to pay your investment returns.
