Welcome to Christie + Co’s Investment page. We advise on investment sales and acquisitions in a number of specialist sectors, including hotels, pubs, retail, leisure, restaurants and care homes. On this page, you’ll find information about how our investment team can help you with every aspect of your investment, as well as providing you with some useful links to help you start your search for your ideal investment opportunity
If you’re looking to invest in the hotel, restaurant, pub, retail, leisure or care sectors, Christie + Co is the business agent for you.
These sectors are becoming increasingly attractive to investors, and many of the investment opportunities we are able to introduce to our clients provide higher yields than those reportedly achieved outside our sectors. Our Investment & Development team
calls upon the knowledge and skills of colleagues in agency, valuation services and consultancy to help identify the most suitable opportunities.
Our team often provides advice to developer clients who are looking to include a hotel, leisure, care or retail element within a mixed-use scheme. You may also find the information on our Development Opportunities page useful.
Suitable operators can be introduced at an early stage to ensure that the development progresses in line with their requirements. We are also often invited to provide advice throughout the life of a development project, from inception to completion. Typical activities may include confirming the suitability of a new business location; introducing a leading brand; and, having negotiated the necessary lease or management agreements, identifying a suitable investor to acquire the freehold asset.
The introduction of a well-known brand can add significant value to a new development scheme because it not only provides the business operator with all the benefits of customer recognition, it also boosts investor confidence.
A number of leading operators are equally keen to target going concern businesses in key locations to enable rapid expansion and improve geographical coverage. We have successfully negotiated new lease agreements on a number of city centre businesses, subsequently selling the freehold asset to an appreciative investor.
Many owners and operators within our sectors are keen to “separate the bricks from the brains” and release equity from their business by instructing us to sell their freehold property assets. We also receive frequent approaches from investors who are looking to enter, or perhaps increase, their presence within our sectors.
Our experienced team has valuable contacts and an in-depth knowledge of finance structures,
which enables us to assist in the composition of successful investment deals.
