Meet your pin host

Hi Arshad Ali here. Welcome to Glasgow pin which takes place on the 2nd Tuesday of each month.

Back in 2016 I had an accident, it was a tough time, and though my job with Scottish widows as an Actuary was secure, it did get me thinking that I needed to have more than one income stream in case something like this ever happened again. I did a lot of research and chose to invest professionally in property, mainly due to the low level of risk and it’s an asset class that isn’t a zero-sum game.

So, over the past 2.5 years I have built up a portfolio worth £1/2million which produces £50k in rental income. I have also taken a property back to brick where I project managed and bought all the material. This gives me a unique understanding of property renovation and is something that I found daunting and exhilarating at the same time.

You may have seen me present here or at other property events already. I love networking and connecting with people and I am the Vice President of Local BNI chapter.

The main reasons I have been able to scale up are due to:

- Raising £400k in private finance, by building long lasting relationships and delivering on promises.
- Getting the right training, if you don’t invest in yourself how can you expect others to invest in you.
- By turning up and coming to property networking events like Glasgow pin, I’ve sat in exactly the same seat as you, absorbed knowledge and created opportunities through the pin network

I’m really excited to ignite your passion in property and bring you closer to the fire. You will learn from speakers who are chosen for their knowledge, expertise and generosity.

Come join me in a room full of opportunity! Grab me in the breaks and if I don’t know the answer, I’m sure I’ll know someone that does.
