Our approach to real estate investments
Speed and certainty
We invest up to £50m of capital per transaction, backed by the private wealth of John Sykes, meaning we work outside the constraints of other people’s money.
We have no set time horizons to invest and monetise, therefore each investment decision is made solely on value creation. We are always looking for great long-term investments.
At the same time, we are able to act swiftly. Our bureaucratic free structure facilitates quick decisions and execution, and enables us to be highly nimble. Moreover, we do what we say we’re going to do.
Simplifying the complex
Whether it is a multi-let retail asset with service charge complexities, or a large residential portfolio of ASTs, we swiftly surround the asset with our various areas of expertise to understand its income potential, along with possible development opportunities.
The process of reviewing an asset generally takes less than a few days and from here we are usually positioned to make unconditional offers.
Engaged, focused and disciplined
We are active owners and invest significant time along with our capital to get the best out of each asset once acquired.
Working alongside our preferred partners, we optimise opportunities, set goals and establish measurable performance indicators to ensure the asset continues to perform over the long-term.
Whilst our goal is always to retain our real estate assets, there are times when it is prudent to sell. We continually monitor the markets and legislation to ascertain whether there are upcoming changes which may cause an asset to deteriorate in value and if this is the case we will consider the best exit method to take forward.
