The vast majority of our investment instructions are repeat business from clients that we have worked with for many years. Our investment team, comprising 3 partners, has advised on over £5 billion of investment transactions in the last 10 years, with an average market share of over 20%.

We work very closely with our agency team to better advise clients, both on the buying and selling side. Their knowledge of the market, in terms of tenants’ trading performance, rents and occupier activity is invaluable when advising our clients. This also often results in us being retained on the agency side following a purchase of an asset, and ensures that the business plan on-purchase is followed through over the life cycle of the asset.

A large proportion of our sales come from assets which the agency team have been advising on for many years, and this allows us to provide a detailed and thorough sales process, presenting the scheme to the best of its ability to the market.
