Third-party asset management

Third-party asset management

Our market-leading platform comprises a highly experienced team of asset managers working alongside finance, development and marketing professionals, and has a track record of delivering growing returns. In addition to servicing our owned assets, this platform manages assets held by our joint ventures and supports third-party owners, which realise the benefits that the scale, relationships and governance credentials of a major asset manager can provide.

Over the past year we have been actively marketing our platform to third-party owners of retail assets, particularly Local Authorities, which have become increasingly acquisitive of these assets, as they seek to take control of their town centres and better serve their communities.
