Desmond Conway, Keystone Property Group CEO, says success is down to the whole team sharing the same vision
Over the past 20 years, I’ve worked around the globe and built a reputation for developing business.
I’ve been responsible for setting up and leading teams to meet project development needs, to increase performance and the bench strength of the businesses. Always focusing on finance, wealth management and property, I’ve championed forming partnerships with the UK’s most acclaimed developers and delivering developer level investment opportunities to investors.
Keystone Property Group was born from my vison to change and innovate the way people invest. By simplifying the property investment process and providing investors with an array of alternative property related investments in addition to the more conventional ‘ownership’ method (which isn’t suitable for all investors), Keystone has delivered an average 20 per cent-plus annualised return for the past three years running.
The business’s success is down to the hard-work and talent of Keystone’s team. United by the same vision and motivated to bring that to life, everyone within the group is committed to playing their part.
