We are a long-term investor in property with a focus on strong property fundamentals and income, including inflation linked assets. We prefer direct ownership but will also invest via joint ventures where partners can add value, particularly in alternative sectors.
We prefer long-income property (e.g. sale and leasebacks and income strips) and also look at international funds and co-investment opportunities.
Although we invest globally, we have a UK bias. Our preferred deal size is £10m - £500m+.
