About Us

We drive value through a "hands on" approach to managing assets and enhancing income:

Our 28-year track record of investing on behalf of our clients is based on adhering to a core set of principles: buying well with stock selection; delivering returns thorugh asset management; and maximising performance  through  efficient debt and tax structuring. This approach, our global platform and multi-disciplinary teams explains our consistent delivery of innovative and successful investment services.

 

We believe "hands on" management coupled with in-depth local knowledge is the fundamental driver of real estate performance and our platform is built to deliver it via:

 

  • An 'on the ground' capability with over 280 employees in 18 offices worldwide
  • Access to and the backing of Savills Group, a leading real estate services firm, which provides us with detailed 'real time' knowledge of the markets where we invest
  • A full range of services for our customers, ranging from transactions and deal sourcing to debt and tax structuring to asset and portfolio management

With teams worldwide in the countries and cities we invest in, we have both the understanding of micro markets to identify ‘undervalued’ assets and the local contacts to source off market deals. Combined with our strong research team, we analyse all assets through both a global macro outlook and a street by street micro view. Our well-resourced local teams also have the experience to implement asset management initiatives to deliver our targeted returns for clients.

 

Our services extend beyond transactions and asset management. To maximise performance we specialise in putting in place tax efficient transaction structures, leveraging returns through strong banking relationships to obtain competitive debt rates, and mitigating financial risks through executing bespoke interest rates and currency hedging solutions.

 

We have a loyal base of investors from 26 countries, including pension funds, insurance companies, banks, endowments and family offices, whom we have developed strong relationships with over the years. With 15 funds and 14 separate accounts, and regulated in five jurisdictions including the UK, Germany and Italy, our clients benefit from our detailed knowledge of European and Asian real estate and the full range of services we offer.
