Patient capital investment

Patient capital investment in real estate is the pursuit of the longer-term return. We have a track record of working with established patient capital investors on market leading projects.

Whilst patient capital isn’t limited to specific assets, it requires an in-depth knowledge of both the asset and its immediate market in order to instill confidence to grow, protect and wait for long term returns. We have deep sector knowledge and expertise across a range of proven and emerging asset classes, and we are often involved at the start and all the way through to the end of a project.

It means we’re uniquely placed, whatever the asset and whatever the term, to work with you to establish tailored strategic plans and offer proactive advice on managing such assets.

We’re “in it for the long-haul”, with many patient capital client relationships spanning decades. Continuity of personnel ensures outstanding advice throughout the project at a strategic and technical level
