About Derwent London
Derwent London owns and manages a 5.5 million sq ft (512,100 sq m) portfolio of commercial real estate located, predominantly in central London, valued at £4.9bn as at 31 December 2017. This makes us the largest London-focused real estate investment trust (REIT)
Our experienced team has a track record of creating value through the property cycle by regenerating our buildings via development or refurbishment, effective asset management and capital recycling.
We typically acquire properties off-market with low capital values and modest rents in improving locations, most of which are either in the West End or the ‘Tech Belt’. We capitalise on the unique qualities of our properties – taking a fresh approach to the regeneration of each individual building with a focus on anticipating tenant requirements and an emphasis on design.
Reflecting and supporting our real estate activities, the business has a strong balance sheet with modest leverage, a robust income stream and flexible financing
