Our Business Model

Our Business Model

Our core strength is owning and managing dominant community shopping centres in the UK.  Complementing this we also seek to exploit entrepreneurial opportunities across the retail and leisure property sectors.

With our experienced team, our strong retailer relationships and our extensive community connections, we seek to generate sustainable income growth by combining active asset management and development with operational excellence.  Our approach to identifying and adding value to a scheme is illustrated as follows:


We believe there are a number of assets that meet our potential investment criteria.  Typically these will be assets that are underperforming in their catchment but have significant asset management or development opportunities.


If suitable we will acquire, wherever possible leveraging our deep industry relationships to secure off market transactions.
