Investment Mini Series Ep 1 - Jack Wathen from Anchor Property
Anchor Property provides yacht crew with transparent solutions in the UK for the ever-growing list of obstacles they face when trying to invest in property. We did a profile highlight on our blog about Anchor Property back in June but we wanted to catch up with Jack once more since we began the Nautic Nomad podcast for our listeners benefit. Even though they are based in the UK, Jack and his team has a lot of knowledge to share that can help anyone who is looking to invest in property. I also asked Jack some of the questions we received from our followers of our Instagram Stories. Give us a follow on Instagram if you are not already: Jack Wathen is a former yachtie who has worked on M/Y Diamond A and Lady S. He studied property in University and after he left yachting he started an investment portfolio called King Croft Homes. Anchor Property was born out of that business as a way to assist yacht crew in making clever decisions when purchasing an investment property.  Get the full show notes on our blog to learn more: *Disclaimer - The material covered in the Nautic Nomad podcasts are for educational and information purposes only.  It is not intended to be investment advice.
