Entrepreneurial and opportunistic approach
We are entrepreneurial and opportunistic in our approach to stock selection. We are not restricted to one sector and evaluate each opportunity on its own merits with a view to limiting exposure to sector specific fluctuations.
Proactive asset management strategies
We apply proactive asset management strategies to unlock sustainable cash returns by growing rents and improving occupancy. Within our investment portfolio we have identified potential development opportunities which, providing they are viable, we will look to unlock over the medium term to deliver real estate which meets occupational demands.
Strong and extensive expertise and relationship network
The management team are regional experts with exceptional market penetration through their relationship networks and extensive property and financial backgrounds.
Total return model
We operate on a total return basis so it is important for us to grow our capital values as well as our income. We have established a core portfolio of sustainable income-producing assets which has enabled us to reward investors with an attractive dividend. Furthermore, we have the flexibility to reinvest surplus capital to refurbish, reposition and recycle property.
Invested in sectors and locations with good growth prospects
Demand for office and industrial space outside London remains strong. The limited supply of office space (partly due to the loss of offices to residential from Permitted Development Rights) is creating advantageous supply-demand dynamics and prospects for rental growth in certain locations. We consider there is implicit rental growth in the regions.
We have a carefully selected portfolio across the UK, diversified by location, sector and tenant in order to limit risk and capitalise on rental growth dynamics.
We see particular value in university towns and cities with good infrastructure such as major road arteries and fast rail links because urbanisation and population growth drive demand for commercial space.
