Investor relations

Our investors are key to achieving our goal of providing and maintaining high quality affordable homes and services. We welcome approaches from new investors.

We build homes in an area where there is an overwhelming demand for affordable housing.  We have a strong business plan and are committed to using our financial capacity to grow the business and provide more high quality new homes with low levels of subsidy. We plan to build 1,000 new homes in the next five years.

We have moderate debt levels and our cash-flow is strong.

To meet our aim we need a diverse range of funding which is structured cost-effectively to provide the necessary investment funds and maintain liquidity.

Our strategy

Our strategy is to raise capital through a bond issue in early 2015 to continue to fund responsible growth, with investment enhancing the value of the business.


Our board members are responsible for governing Paragon. Their central role is to direct our work and determine direction and strategy in an effective and accountable way. As a business for social purpose we believe that it is important that we are open and transparent in all that we do.
