About Layout 2

ConsultingWP originated in 1985 with five principals dedicated to integrity and excellence in economic and financial consulting.

Through gaining experience in various economic periods, our team are able to identify the best opportunities whether we are in good times or bad times. Good times provide growth in our portfolio and bad times, despite the potential negative effects, can provide opportunities.

We see ourselves as a forward looking group of passionate property professionals with the relevant experience to match.
