Property investment specialist Helmsley Group is celebrating another profitable year for the business, having invested £17m in properties across Yorkshire over the last year on behalf of its client investors.

The York-based business, which has reported a year-on-year increase in profits of circa 20% across the Helmsley Group of Companies, has also seen further consistent growth in its network of over 800 client investors.

The positive performance comes following a milestone year for Helmsley, which included the submission of plans for Coney Street Riverside, a once-in-a-generation scheme that seeks to significantly regenerate York’s
underutilised riverfront.

It has also continued to invest in its specialist team of property professionals, with head of asset management, Alexia Swift-Cookson, being made a director, and Tom Riddolls joining as a development surveyor.

Earlier this year, the firm announced the launch of Yorcation, a holiday lettings specialist aimed at helping owners of holiday lets provide the best possible guest experience.

Richard Peak, managing director said: “With my 25th anniversary of working with the business approaching, I have spent time reflecting on Helmsley Group’s success to date. I’m hugely proud of the continued investment and impact that we have made across the Yorkshire region, with these results demonstrating that property continues to be a secure investment, despite ongoing market volatility.

“We have always prided ourselves on investing and developing in the areas we know and understand best, so as to deliver the best possible returns for our client investors, and this year has been no exception. We want to say a huge thank you to all of the team for their ongoing hard work and their commitment to this strategic, sensitive approach to property.”
