Let’s face facts. With the federal reserve dumping $3.5 trillion dollars into the economy, handing out $600 cash cheques to everyone, propping up wall street, GDP down more than the height of the GFC and over 21 million Americans currently out of a job, things are looking bleak.

This is all with the backdrop of bankruptcy’s from multi billion dollar companies such as Hertz and Chesapeake along with household names such as Golds Gym, GNC and many closing doors due to the corona virus.

So where are the stock markets at with all this going on? ALL TIME HIGHS OF COURSE! It does not take an expert to know that it is only a matter of time before the next major stock market crash.

If you are an investor that is looking for a way to generate an income for retirement while diversifying away from the stock market or bond markets what options do you have?

At the most basic level this is effectively lending a business money so that they can complete a construction project. In return they will give you a fixed % return along with your original investment  (capital) back.

Investopedia describes it as. “A loan note is an extended form of a generic I Owe You (IOU) document from one party to another. It enables a payee (borrower) to receive payments from a lender, possibly with an interest rate attached, over a set period of time, and ending on the date at which the entire loan is to be repaid. Loan notes are usually provided in lieu of cash at the payee’s request.”


  • A loan note is a type of promissory agreement that outlines the legal obligations of the lender and the borrower.
  • A loan note is a legally binding agreement that includes all the terms of the loan, such as the payment schedule, due date, principal amount, interest rate, and any prepayment penalties.
  • Lenders typically require borrowers to agree to loan notes for big-ticket purchases, such as for a home or car.
  • Loan notes can have tax benefits to the borrower and can also be a convenient source of seed money for new entrepreneurs and startups.
  • In many cases, a loan note is preferable to an informal IOU because a loan note holds more legal significance and is easier to uphold in court should there be a disagreement between the parties.


Term: These can be over different time lengths such as 6 months, 12 months 18 months and right up to 5 years plus.

Returns: These can be anywhere from 3.5% per annum, right up to 15% per annum depending on the sector and profile of the investment.

That sounds risky: Actually, these kinds of investments can have a series of protections in place for investors capital, while not ‘risk free’ they are certainly ways you can measure the risks via a comprehensive due diligence process.


I would suggest you look at companies with the following.

  • More than a 10 year track record.
  • Over $1 billion dollars of completed projects.
  • A strong board of directors
  • That your assets are securitised by a regulated body such as the FCA.
  • 100% track record of paying out dividends.


So why would they pay me 10% a year, instead of just lending the money from a bank?:
Another common and great question. That’s because for the kinds of developments that companies such as Godwin do, the banks are actually the end customer. Along with pension houses, investment banks and even some high net worth family trusts. While Godwin does in fact also lend from banks they rely on multiple income streams to fund their projects to ensure diversification.

So how do they generate their profits?
With Godwin it’s all about the exit (sale of the development). The developments they build are sold to companies such as Starbucks, McDonalds, Aldi, KFC and Lidl supermarkets, along with their Build to Rent projects. These often have very long-term outlook and it’s rather typical for the return on investment for Godwin to be over 250%+ for a completed development. This makes it easy for them to absorb the 10% income they have to pay investors for raising the initial capital.
