A Brief History

Where it all started, from
inception to completion.

2020 Group UK was started in 2002 by Arif Mushtaq whilst he was in a leadership role at GE capital. The property world was of interest due to the rapid rise in property prices. 2020 property developments was then formed and then up to 2009 the business engaged in largely residential refurbishments and new builds.

Then to 2013 the business suffered from the market financial crisis so the objective was to hold on to assets and ride the difficulties. During this turbulent time the business did some work but it was all at a far reduced and more cautious level than before:

  4 properties purchased, developed and let … held due to negative equity. Sold 2012 at -11% loss

  Multiple additional properchased to repeat this yield achievement
