Our strategy

  • Relationship-based sourcing, working with well-known, experienced counterparties
  • Diversification across the UK, with a focus on opportunities with good liquidity
  • Focus on deeper markets or those with structural undersupply
  • Avoidance of high-end developments, first-time or part-time developers and properties in distress
