Kiwi deal-flow club
As a natural extension of our Kiwi property network we have started a “deal flow club” for KIP members who work for active property investment companies including asset and investment management companies, family offices, banks, funds, etc. We are identifying member investment asset appetite, building a database and accessing the KIP network and beyond to identify suitable opportunities. Patrick Ryan of Sire Properties is working with KIP to develop the deal-flow club and we already have a couple of off market deals on the table. If you would like to get involved please get in touch with Bryce at [email protected] or Patrick at [email protected]

Member Profile - Jeremy Chin-Fatt
Name - Jeremy Chin-Fatt
NZ hometown - Palmerston North
Company - Orega Serviced Offices
Role - Director of Central Sales
What is your connection with the property sector?
I work for Orega, a serviced office provider that manages space on behalf of our landlord partners. We are a UK owned and operated company which started in 2001 and currently manage 18 locations across the UK. I manage our phone-based sales team who bring in business across our three products – serviced offices, meeting rooms and virtual offices.
How long have you been in the UK?
Coming up 12 years.
What piece of advice would you give a fellow Kiwi new to London?
Don’t come during a pandemic (joke!). London has everything you could want - food, travel, partying, fantastic job opportunities and more so don’t be afraid to ask as many questions of people, to find out what is good and what suits you. Use your connections and networks to find a great job, and if you want to stay long term, look into visa options early to make your life easier later.
What makes you proud to be a Kiwi?
Really hard to condense my answer as there are so many things I am proud of, being a kiwi. The crux of it though is we are pretty relaxed yet work hard, play hard and rarely complain. As a country, we punch well above our weight on the world stage.
How can other KIP members help you?
If anyone needs office space, meeting rooms or a virtual address in the UK feel free to reach out. We also have a referral scheme if you know anyone else searching. We are always keen to speak to new landlord partners who may need us to manage their space for them so we welcome introductions.
How can you help other KIP members?
If anyone is keen to know more about the serviced office industry, let me know. I’ve been in it for just over 10 years, and it’s a fun, dynamic area of the property sector. I believe it will do very well when everything returns to normal due to its flexibility and turn-key solution offering.
Kiwi fun facts
Favourite NZ Sporting Personality?
Richie McCaw – just seems like a typical kiwi bloke but has clearly achieved amazing things by being dedicated to his craft.
Favourite NZ beach?
Not really a beach but by the sea - Curious Cove, Marlborough Sounds. My kiwi grandparents have a bach there and I spent many a summer there fishing, hiking and watching the ferry go past. A great way to get away from civilization and reconnect with nature, as its only accessible by water taxi.
NZ food you miss most?
Tip Top ice cream. Can’t beat it on hot summer days in NZ. Oh and decent sushi.
Who would you most like to sit beside on your next trip back to NZ and why?
Jacinda. We all know she’s a bit of a legend, but I’d really want to know her side of the story being Prime Minister and going through the things she has so far. What’s her take on everything that is happening in the world at the moment.
