About us

We are on a mission to democratise international property investment

We believe that property is an essential part of a diversified investment portfolio and should be accessible to everybody. We believe that given clear information, a set of powerful digital tools, and access to vetted, high-quality deals, you have the intelligence to make investment decisions that will help you to meet your personal financial objectives.

We believe that by combining the power of technology with the potential of an international network of expert property professionals and motivated investors, Pionr will become the global marketplace for a new type of property investing, helping you and millions of others to reach your full financial potential.

Our story

The idea behind Pionr first took root after our founder Jonathan Wiggin completed his own property development project in Montenegro. Considering funding options for future projects, he noticed that none of the existing property investment platforms offered properties across international markets.

After carrying out market research for over a year and developing the Pionr concept, Jonathan secured funding in 2018 and started work building the Pionr platform. The name Pionr represents our business's dynamic approach to investment and technology, and gives a nod to our founder's New Zealand heritage.

We are proud to announce that Pionr has been selected by NatWest to join its new Fintech Accelerator Programme, and we are also delighted to be part of Geovation’s geolocation and property innovation community.
