Real Estate

Our real estate team has a proven track record and a unique hands-on investment approach, providing clients with exposure to UK and pan-European property. The team is located in key markets across Europe and has extensive experience of acquisitions and asset management, covering the full range of lot sizes. Our senior management team has an average of 24 years’ experience in UK and European property markets.

Competitive advantages

  • Business free from any legacy issues

    Unlike the majority of our competitors, our team is not distracted by legacy issues such as tenant insolvencies, over-priced assets or refinancing. The team is fully focussed on today’s market, taking advantage of favourable pricing opportunities in the core markets of the Eurozone and the UK.

  • Award-winning risk management supporting focussed stock picking

    Recognised as market leaders in real estate risk management, winning an Institute of Risk Management Award in 2010 for “Best use of risk management in financial services”, we have a sophisticated understanding of property risks. By focussing on well-diversified, high quality portfolios, our clients benefit from a competitive risk / return profile which avoids a ‘benchmark’ hugging approach.

  • Experience managing through several property cycles

    With an average of 24 years' experience, our senior management team has first-hand knowledge of working through several property cycles, across the full range of lot sizes. In challenging market environments, clients benefit from their good judgement and strong risk-management skills, with effective negotiation on deals for our clients.

  • Closer alignment of interests and an investor-centric management style

    Our approach to real estate investment involves co-investment wherever possible and practical. This aligns our interests with those of our clients, which results in superior outcomes.
