Buying into bricks and mortar through commercial property syndication is a very simple concept, which we have developed and refined and been involved with for more than 20 years.

Suitable only for investment by Professional clients, qualifying High Net Worth individuals or Sophisticated Investors.

We make it easy for you to directly invest in well-let commercial properties such as high street retail and leisure, offices and industrial units which have the ability to provide attractive returns and a well secured income.

Imagine owning a portfolio of blue chip properties as part of your pension or investment portfolio. Not managed through a fund manager but, managed by you, with risks and returns spread across a range of sectors and a geographical spread to suit you. We use our expertise to buy or develop properties in prime locations, which are rented on medium to long-term leases to high quality tenants. You become a beneficial owner of a percentage of one or more of these properties through syndication and subsequently receive a proportionate share of the rental income and any future capital growth.  These investments are categorised as unregulated collective investment schemes (UCIS).

The beauty of syndicated property is that you can invest directly in a single commercial property and can pick and choose which property you wish to invest in. Syndication allows smaller investors to purchase bigger and better quality stock, than would otherwise be unobtainable. You can even spread your risk over several property types and properties in different locations.

Property syndication is suited to people looking for relatively low risk, long to medium-term returns away from the stock market. Annual net returns of at least 5.75%p.a. are currently being achieved, but these can increase at rent review and some properties in our portfolio are showing returns in excess of 8.25%p.a. after management costs, and excluding capital growth.

Our clients’ syndicated property portfolio has amounted to approximately £110 million all acquired and held with cash funds. Tenants range from single occupiers, ‘blue chip’ tenants such as Nike, Boots and Halfords and government agencies on long-term leases, to properties with mixed tenants on shorter leases.
