Property Funds and Management
Property funds have a long and successful history as an alternative investment class. In particular, in the past two decades the property fund sector globally has experienced exponential growth in terms of geographic reach, diversity of commercial strategy and sophistication of product.
The range of investment structures available to fund managers in order to deliver their commercial strategies has also expanded enormously. The property fund sector has witnessed a considerable amount of innovation and we have been involved in a number of key developments including establishing funds whose underlying performance is benchmarked to real estate.
In a continually changing landscape, we help our clients to innovate and take advantage of commercial opportunities both in the UK and globally. You can be confident you will be working with experts who combine technical knowledge with invaluable experience.
Our real estate fund team has been working with leading property funds and fund managers for over 30 years. We currently act for some of the largest property funds and investors globally and are active members of leading trade bodies.
We advise regulated and unregulated funds across all real estate classes covering the full spectrum of Core, Core-plus, Value-add and Opportunistic strategies for both open-ended and closed-ended funds.
We advise throughout the fund life-cycle. This encompasses assisting sponsors in developing the investment propositions, advising on the most appropriate structures, developing and implementing asset acquisition strategies, monetising real estate assets and attending to matters associated with the termination of funds and return of capital to investors.
In tandem with the core real estate team, our Business Services and Outsourcing team provides outsourced accounting services including day-to-day accounting and management reporting, VAT, payment services and company secretarial services.
