‘I do know about every deal that happens in London,’ Paul Munford says of his acute visibility in the fast-moving and secretive world of property finance. ‘I make it my business to know about the finance market on a real-time basis, not six months behind.’ MCIFA’s CEO’s 26 years’ experience has fortified his knowledge of the City’s property pulse. ‘Life’s getting more complicated, we’re here to make it simpler,’ Munford says. The ‘Brexit heart-attack’ is over, he had previously told Spear’s, and the weakness of the pound has increased property purchases from abroad, calibrating the 2017 skew towards refinancing. There is currently strong interest from Arab, Chinese and Latin American investors, who are drawn not only to the currency advantage but also to its overall appeal as a ‘safe haven’ in comparison to their economies. Although Europeans are less drawn to the pound drop, Munford has still recently seen an Italian family ‘buying every building that comes on the [Mayfair] market. It is what the real estate market really needs,’ he says. As clients keep returning to this trusted adviser, who has over 80 per cent renewal rate, we can’t help but wonder what sets MCIFA apart from others? ‘The highest level of experience in the high-end London market,’ he replies. ‘Our big selling point is we get things done, we make it happen.’
