About Us

Founded in 2010, we are a leading UK-based private real estate investor that combines research-led investment themes with vertical integration and in-house operating platforms.

We invest in real estate located in and around select UK and European cities. Our team has a proven track record of investing throughout the capital structure and across asset classes, adding value with operational expertise.

We act as a trusted real estate investment partner to provide consistent returns while making a positive impact in the communities in which we invest. We strive always to be at the forefront of change, developing in-house capabilities and a thoughtful view on the world that together create a sustainable competitive advantage.

Our Approach

We invest where we have a competitive advantage to consistently generate attractive returns to investors.

Our collective knowledge and experience, including input from development management, asset management and operations, is brought to bear in each investment decision. The whole team is involved from the outset, and the process incorporates a holistic approach to sourcing investments, which leverages our local knowledge and extensive connections.
