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:
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.
