Challenges of being offshore

For many working overseas, there is a lack of awareness of the financial advantages for expatriates when it comes to investing in their home country.

Ben Weeding, says of his experience working overseas in Japan, London and Singapore:

“One of my biggest gripes as an expatriate, was the lack of available knowledge on investing in Australian real estate. My mission is to change this”.

Turning a passion into a business

Developing  a keen interest in the Australian property market,  and using his analytical skills as an investment banker,  Ben went on to develop a substantial Australian property portfolio, whilst offshore. It was this success that eventually led him to turn this passion for property into helping other expatriates by joining Buyside.

Assisting executives on assignment in Asia with strategies to build residential and commercial portfolios, Ben provides education, information on market activity as well as access to opportunities, particularly in NSW and Queensland.

Helping expatriates build portfolios

Using a buyers agent helps take the guess work out of property investing for the proximity-restricted, time-poor expatriate. This provides peace of mind they are buying the right type of property to help them reach financial freedom sooner.
