DYNAMIC PROPERTY INVESTMENT & DEVELOPMENT
Richard hayward is a well-known property investor and developer with more than 40 years’ experience in the industry.
He is responsible for RHP’s corporate business strategy and development projects. The investment buisness is managed by the staff.
Richard started his property business in residential investment in 1979 and subsequently sold his portfolio first in 1988 for £6.4 million.
He was also a partner in Davis & sons estate agents, until it was sold to prudential in 1989.
His vision, drive and passion underpins RHP’s company ethos, while his entrepreneurial approach and wide-ranging interests have created a uniquely flexible business that works across all property sectors and also invests in fledging businesses and individuals.
As a lawyer and someone who has been involved in property development and investment as well as a host of other commercial activities since the 1970’s, Richard has led the business through several recessions with plans to further the growth of the business for the future with the finances in place to support them.
Richards empire has stretched from Devon to Cornwall to the Highlands and Lowlands of Scotland but has always been based in South Wales. At one stage in 2005 the business managed £350m of assets. Today the business has £75m with few levels of debt and continues to reduce debt whilst carrying on selective development to aid cashflow and add to the value of the portfolio by creation rather than through investment purchase.
This results in better quality assets with better tenants and lower debt.
