Our History

Formed in 1986 and listed on the London Stock Exchange in 1987, we have followed a consistent strategy since the early 1990s of investing only in the heart of London’s West End. The economic recession of 1990-1993 had a severe impact on the UK real estate market. Through our then modest holdings in Chinatown, we realised that the unique features of the West End provided much greater long-term resilience in tenant demand, rental growth and capital values than other locations either in London or in the UK generally.

Since we adopted this strategy, our record of delivering sustained rental growth and out-performance in capital values underlines the exceptional qualities of our central locations.
