Where We Invest

INVESTMENTS

As professional investors, we know markets dictate everything. That’s why we’ve chosen our investment areas carefully, making sure supply and demand dynamics are favourable and that there is a strong market need for the high-end aspirational properties we offer our professional and executive tenants and buyers. We’ve focused our investments in Reading and Bracknell thus far, two areas that tick all those boxes.
