Investment & Development Overview

Our investment and development proposition is unique in its dedication to our specialist operational sectors which include healthcare, hotels, hospitality, retail, care, medical, childcare & education

We work across the complete spectrum of assets ranging from high value investments geared towards the institutional market to smaller lots, often with value add opportunities, which are targeted towards private investors.

Aside from our detailed knowledge of investor requirements and relationships with the widest spectrum of UK, international and sector specific investors, our unique strengths are our granular sector knowledge and long standing operator relationships. These enable us to dynamically understand how assets are positioned in their local markets, thereby minimising risk whilst identifying opportunities ‘ahead of the curve’ to help investors maximise returns.

One key area of specialism is our development activity, whereby we work with developers and operators to create new to market opportunities. This involves sourcing and evaluating new development opportunities, securing occupier commitments and brokering forward funded investment sales.

We truly believe in long standing partnership approaches and are proud to work with an extensive range of independent, charitable and corporate operators, investors and developers, private equity investors, syndicated funds, institutional investors, pension funds and special situation funds

Please do not hesitate to contact the key contacts if you would like to discuss our range of services further.
