Advisory and discretionary separate accounts

We have extensive experience working with and running mandates for some of the largest sovereign wealth and global investment funds in the world. This experience extends across investment sourcing, fund structuring and asset management.

Track record

In October 2015, we launched a segregated account, focused on investment in core/core plus retail warehouse assets in Germany, on behalf of a German insurance company. The Fund is an open-ended real estate special AIF administered via the platform of IntReal. Targeting supermarket-anchored retail warehouses, the 10-year vehicle was launched with initial equity of c.€250m.

In June 2013, we were appointed by AustralianSuper, the $53bn Australian superannuation fund, to act as investment advisor for its emerging UK retail property strategy. In December 2013, we guided them through their inaugural UK acquisition - a deal which saw AustralianSuper partner with BT Pension Scheme through the purchase of a 50% interest ($450m) in a major regional shopping centre, thecentre:mk in Milton Keynes, north west of London. In June 2015, we were appointed to be investment manager for their emerging Central London office property investment strategy. We advised them on acquiring a 25% stake in King's Cross Central. The central London exemplar, mixed-use development has become one of the city’s most successful neighbourhoods, set to grow further over the next five years with additional homes, offices, schools, retail, leisure, cultural and community spaces. When the scheme is complete, there will be over 50 new and refurbished buildings totalling 5.8 million sq ft (c.589,000 sq m) NIA, with a total value in excess of $7.4bn.
