Business Model

At Derwent London, we focus on maximising the total return from our substantial central London portfolio. To this end, we typically acquire properties off-market with low capital values in improving areas of London, taking advantage of the dynamic nature of one of the world’s great cities.

How we create value:

Business Model

Our business model is to:

  • Acquire properties and unlock value

Purchase buildings in central London which can be improved or regenerated. Restructure leases to unlock additional value.

  • Create well-designed space

Transform properties to create adaptable, attractive spaces for our tenants and the local community

  • Optimise income

Employ our detailed knowledge of occupiers’ needs to let to high quality tenants from a wide range of businesses and to minimise the level of voids in the portfolio

  • Recycle capital

Identify properties for disposal where value has been optimised and dispose of those which do not fit the Group’s long-term plans.

  • Maintain robust and flexible financing

Negotiate flexible financing and retain a healthy level of interest cover and gearing.
