The Real Estate sector is going through a period of considerable change. There is significant polarisation within the sector, with retail facing well-documented challenges, while logistics, residential (including student accommodation) and storage are benefiting from structural growth trends. In this persistent low interest rate environment, there is continuing demand for real assets which provide attractive yields and inflation-beating returns.

The Real Estate sector is an active area of UK corporate activity, and with constantly changing trends across office space, leisure, logistics, residential and retail, there is interest in new ideas and innovation, and significant capital willing to support them.

We have a team specifically dedicated to working with Real Estate companies, supported by industry-leading and award-winning research. The team works across Corporate Finance, Corporate Broking, Research, Sales and Sales Trading.

The Investment Funds team is an important part of our Real Estate capability, and our collaborative approach allows us to provide the greatest possible depth of service to REITs.

We offer a full range of financial advisory and capital raising solutions, including:

  • Corporate broking and advisory services, supported by highly-rated specialist equity research and sales & trading capabilities
  • Public and private capital raising capabilities
  • M&A advisory services (public takeovers and defence, private transactions and cross-border deals)
