HiP is UNLOCKING THE CLOSED LOOP

UNLOCKING THE CLOSED LOOP

Currently, property finance is a closed loop system between owners and financial institutions. HiP opens that loop up to all.

What is HiP? - HiP Explained in 3mins

Welcome to HiP

Despite being the largest asset class in the world, the real estate market remains broken, antiquated and geared exclusively in favour of financial institutions.

At its core, real estate is plagued by a single fundamental issue; a closed financial loop that forcibly locks single buyers into financing arrangements with single lenders.

Even if a property owner only owes 20% of the property’s value in debt, the lender still controls 100% of the property as collateral. In effect, all the money stored in the property becomes a security for the debt, irrespective of the debt size. This creates an ongoing debt culture, restricting the flexibility of owners, even for owners without debt, to realise the wealth stored in their property. For example, to access their equity, a debt-free owner would need to take on debt in the form of equity release, refinance or bridging loans to release value from their assets. This is not true ‘equity release’ but reversed engineered debt instruments perpetuating a debt culture.

A significant proportion of the world’s real estate wealth sits untapped and inaccessible. This is about to change.

HiP aims to be the first to make real estate wealth more accessible at scale by turning equity and debt underlying a property into tradable, interactive assets. HiP aims to develop a system whereby equity becomes a currency and debt levels become a choice. With HiP equity release means selling a percentage of your assets (without losing ownership) to raise money, free of debt.

A whole new capital market is about to emerge…

“HiP could solve the UK housing crisis”

Peter Bill – Author of Planet Property

Current estimates suggest that of the $228 trillion global real estate market a total of $52 trillion is mortgaged or financed;
