What We Do Finding Investment Solutions


Each week, our team is presented with many potential property deals, but only a select few make it through our rigorous selection process. We focus on identifying opportunities where we can add value through our strategic insights or tactical elements. Whether it’s through planning gain or specialised asset management gain, we are committed to finding innovative ways to maximise the potential of each property we invest in.




Utilising location analytics provides us with a more comprehensive understanding of the market, enabling us to make informed decisions. By analysing demographics, shopping habits, and competitor locations, as well as evaluating any long-term changes to an area such as planned housing or infrastructure developments, we can determine the potential consequences of each investment, resulting in successful outcomes for our clients.



Our philosophy centres around the transformation of underutilised land and forgotten buildings into unique spaces that breathe new life into the area. Our expertise lies in developing and redeveloping properties for a range of purposes, including prestigious residential, commercial, mixed-use, and student living. At the core of our business is a commitment to developing properties that not only benefit the community but also provide sound investment opportunities for our clients.


Our core business is focused on the world of property. With years of experience in the real estate industry, we have developed a unique understanding and feel for the market, enabling us to provide exceptional services to our clients.

What Sets Us Apart

Bernard was recently introduced to a public fund that has invested approximately £1 billion in property throughout the UK over the past five years. He played a pivotal role in the fund’s asset management operations, leading to the rapid growth of a team of nearly 100 personnel within one year of inception. This necessitated the appointment of high-end consultants and the development of robust systems and processes to support the team’s operations. The experience enabled Bernard and his team to operate at a new level of data analytics and market operations, backed by a well-structured corporate support system. 

Thanks to the support of our strong and high-performing corporate team, we are now better equipped than ever to capitalise on acquisition-related opportunities. Our team not only stress-tests every deal that comes our way, but we also have a deep understanding of market dynamics, enabling us to identify potential risks and opportunities that go beyond just the property itself. This nuanced approach to investment sets us apart from our competitors and positions us as leaders in the industry. By leveraging our expertise and insights, we are able to make informed decisions that lead to successful outcomes and satisfied clients.

Our primary objective is to source property deals that are both safe and lucrative from day one, offering multiple avenues to enhance their value and improve their returns over time. However, our approach is not based on mere hope value. Rather, we leverage our privileged access to unique data and information, obtained through our extensive network of connections, to make better-informed investment decisions. Our data-driven approach allows us to evaluate the risks and opportunities of each deal more thoroughly and accurately, ensuring that we only pursue deals that offer the best possible returns for our clients. By leveraging our data and connections, we are able to stay ahead of the curve and maintain a competitive edge in the market.
