With hybrid office and home working now well established, there is a flight to quality from tenants, as well as increased attention on the amenity of both the property and the surrounding area. Environmental and employee wellness considerations are on a strong ascendancy.

Office Strategies

  • US Office

    The availability of single tenant leases in excess of 15 years makes the US office sector an attractive proposition. With a greater prevalence of external tenant ratings, investors can select either investment grade occupiers or those on the ascendancy with an associated value jump in due course. Fixed annual rent increases provide an attractive and predictable upwards income stream.

  • EU Office

    European offices arguably lead the world for environmental and employee wellness considerations, with tenants frequently demanding the very best. With leases available of at least 10 years and typically annual inflation linked rent increases, this sector looks attractive in the current economic environment.

Example Investments

  • Danone Global Headquarters, Hoofdoorp, The Netherlands

    A 5-storey, state of the art office building providing 8,500 sq.m., let to Danone, serving as their baby food and medical nutrition global headquarters. Located in Hoofddorp in the Amsterdam metropolitan area, well-known for its strategic location next to Amsterdam Schiphol Airport.

    Having agreed an attractive price based on a forward commitment, our investors benefitted from the annual inflation linked rent increases and an exit of the property in the summer of 2022 before European real estate prices adjusted.

  • The Reserve, Chicago, Illinois, US

    A 7-storey office building sitting on 57 acres of land, partly let to Continental Automotive. Easily accessible to downtown Chicago and O’Hare International Airport. The building also achieved a WELL Health-Safety rating in 2021.

    Since the COVID-19 pandemic the remaining top floors were let to technology and research & development focused tenants, with a successful sale of the fully let property.

  • Sval Energy HQ, Stavanger, Norway

    A 10,358 sq.m. office building fully let to Sval Energy Norway, a new generation energy company. The property is located in Stavanger, the capital of the oil and gas industry in Norway and one of Europe’s fastest growing cities. Designed to Energy class A and BREEAM ‘Very Good’ standard.

    As part of the tenant’s relocation of its employees to the property, a new 10 year lease was successfully negotiated, along with a requirement for the tenant to complete enhancement works.
