    Can Socially Responsible Property Investing solve the UK housing crisis? With Anna Clare Harper, Co-Founder of Anglo Residential, Property Investor and Strategist

    In this episode, Property Investor and Strategist Anna Clare Harper explores how the housing crisis is more than just a housing problem, and why headline grabbing policies win votes but generally prove expensive and unsuccessful.

    Anna recently delivered her first TEDx talk in which she was privileged to explore the question ‘Can Socially Responsible Investing solve the UK housing crisis?'.

    Since studying Land Economy at Cambridge University, the social and financial consequences of investing have influenced her career. She’s been privileged to be involved with £100m's worth of deals and strategies, most recently as Co-Founder of the UK property fund, Anglo Residential which focuses on rental housing, via working as a Strategy Consultant at Deloitte, working with High Net Worth Investors on individual projects and writing the book, Strategic Property Investing.

    This talk shares the ideas she has developed, with highlights including:


    What the housing crisis really is, and why it is more than just a housing problem

    What investors really want, and how Socially Responsible Investing provides a solution - with Environmental Social and Governance investing amounting to c. 25% of professionally managed assets worldwide

    How building new homes and headline-grabbing policies like Help to Buy won’t solve the housing crisis

    The 5 things needed for Socially Responsible Property Investing to solve housing and investor problems
