What House? is a UK property portal, featuring new homes, property for sale and to rent, affordable housing for sale across the UK from most major homebuilders and agents in the UK.

What House?

Founded as a magazine in 1978 to provide consumers with information on new homes for sale, as well as interiors and gardens, What House? was acquired by its present owners in 1988, when it merged with Homefinder magazine. What House? moved online in 2005, becoming

Now back in print the WhatHouse? paper hits the doorsteps of over 460,000 affluent homeowners on a monthly basis throughout London and the South East, and the West Midlands region.

The WhatHouse? Awards, an annual housebuilder awards ceremony which judges the best new homes in the UK, is

also part of the What House? brand and the 33rd such ceremony took place in November 2014.

What House? is owned by independent publisher Globespan Media Limited, which also publishes Show House magazine, a monthly magazine for housebuilders.

This investment may not be for you

We make no bones about it; this investment may not be for you.For starters, it’s all about wealth protection and capital appreciation over time – an ex Head of Credit Suisse private banking, described it as the classic ‘buy and hold’ investment.

Still - there’s no yield, no income and no dividend and it’s certainly for the more sophisticated, considered investor, not the thrill seeker.

Having said that, several entrepreneurs are already our clients and people as diverse as a French Open tennis champion, Fed Chair Janet Yellen, a ‘Green Jacket wearing’ pro golfer and Bill Gross, ex Pimco fund’s ‘Bond King’ have all invested in this asset class.

In fact, Bill Gross, a man who knows how to make money if ever there was one, employed similar methodology as to his bond investing and in 2010 proclaimed, “it’s four times profit, it’s better than the stock market…”

Plus - this investment comes with the backing of 158 years of expertise from a trusted, British heritage, Royal Warrant holder and your assets are secured with a Lifetime Guarantee of Authenticity.

Ironically though, many people are not even aware of this tangible asset class and the opportunity it creates for portfolio diversification and potential wealth preservation.

It’s not gold, silver, bonds, real estate or stocks, but it’s an investment that, if you track the three indices listed on Bloomberg Professional ® terminals and review the academic research*, has many indications of being a safe haven and a store of wealth.

The beauty is, it’s an asset class uncorrelated with other mainstream assets.

It’s other strength is that it’s largely driven by supply-demand economics; there is a finite supply and a quietly growing base of interest and investment, which, unsurprisingly, has tended to keep prices and value on a steady upwards curve.

But as I said, it’s not for everyone – frankly, it’s a five to ten year, ‘buy and hold’ investment for a healthy return (our average is just over six years currently).

If, however, you are looking for:

1. A potentially healthy, longer-term return on your investment2. An uncorrelated asset class you can diversify into to spread your risk3. Something tangible and compelling to invest in, not a virtual ‘unit’ or ‘certificate’

or a commodity open to market whimsy and investor sentiment4. An investment where your capital is not repeatedly eroded by management,

transaction, valuation or other fees5. A trusted entity and ‘stock picker’ with more than 150 years of proven experience

in their field.

You can get your free guide on this investment opportunity here.

Best wishes,

I’m Keith Heddle, Managing Director of Stanley Gibbons Investments and my team and I would welcome the chance potentially to surprise you – but more importantly, to see if what we offer might suit your investment strategy.

We’re not interested in ‘pushing you,’ only seeing if what we offer is right for you – after that, we

generate the majority of our business (about 68% currently) from repeat and re-investment and through word of mouth.

• Branding: use the developer or agent name, remember the email is already coming from a familiar and trusted brand (Whathouse?)

• Location is key: users will immediately require assurances that the product is relevant to their search criteria

• Filter those users: very specific subject lines can be extremely effective ie ‘2 bed

apartments’ ...keep tight to the targeting fields

• Key words: ‘luxury’ and similar quality driven words consistently perform well across all price brackets; ‘exclusivity’ or indication of consumer desire (‘back by popular demand’...) both help as perceptions of scarcity/existing demand are strong motivators
