A real estate investor with a clear purpose:
to create places, products and platforms that transform the experience of the built environment.

We invest thematically and thoughtfully, contributing to a sustainable future where the built environment enriches our lives, our communities and the planet.

We combine innovation, institutional discipline, local knowledge and the best research in the business to maintain a unique edge in the market.

We’ve developed a fully integrated approach covering the life cycle of every property investment, maintaining control, minimising risk and maximising quality through the use of purpose-built operating platforms. Everything we do is run by specialists with deep experience and domain expertise, helping us to stay at the forefront of change.

Whether we’re seeking out new spaces, technologies or rethinking traditional businesses and models, we ensure that every building, business and community we’re responsible for becomes more valuable for everyone, delivering a return on our relationships as well as our investments.

Our Approach

We are a research-based, thematic, vertically integrated real estate investor, investing in the UK and Europe on behalf of pension funds, institutions and individuals.

We create consistent and sustainable value through three key drivers:

  • Research Focus

Our Culture

We began as a small group of experts, united by an entrepreneurial spirit and the energy to get things done.

We’ve come a long way, but we’re only just getting started. By operating transparently and clearly, and expecting excellence, we provide real challenges, opportunities and room to grow.

Impact & Sustainability

building external perspective

The built environment influences every element of our lives. That’s why we invest, innovate and operate in it with such passion.

Through the breadth of our operations, we endeavour to improve the sustainability of the built environment, develop and support our team, and have a positive impact on the communities in which we operate.

Our role is to ensure that every building, business and community we’re responsible for becomes more valuable for everyone, from our investors to local stakeholders and end users, delivering a return on our relationships as well as our investments.
