How we can we help you?
We pride ourselves in providing best-in-class sales, acquisition advice and solutions across all real estate sectors around the world. Our client services extend to a range of strategic transactions including debt advisory, capital raising, joint ventures, club deals, minority stakes, M&A solutions, sale and leasebacks, restructuring and receivership – pure real estate expertise combined with innovative capital solutions. These activities are supported globally by market-leading agency, valuations, consultancy and research businesses.
Our multi-sector capabilities include our traditional core office, residential (multi-family), logistics, industrial, retail and hospitality sectors, as well as the ever-advancing student, healthcare, senior living, automotive and education sectors, to the fast-developing data centres, renewables and life sciences sectors. In such a fast changing economic environment, the ability to provide multi-sector strength has never been more key to repurposing and unlocking value.
These specialisms are fundamental to our development advisory business, particularly in relation to larger mixed-use development projects.
Navigating the real estate risk curve
Our Global Capital Markets Group acts on many of the most high-profile real estate transactions. Day-to-day, around the world, our activities focus on single assets through to large multi-market portfolios. From land sales and acquisitions to ground-up development, asset repositioning, value-add through to core and “annuity –style” investments, we have the expertise to help you to implement your business plans and optimise value.
Sustainable investing and financing
Within capital markets, the sustainability or “greening” of our investment and development activities is influencing decision making at the highest levels. Its importance is such that “environmental obsolescence” is now impacting existing portfolio balance and asset selection. “Green” rental premiums are being achieved for the most environmentally sound accommodation as well as the emergence of beneficial “green” financing terms.
Our Global Capital Markets Group is fully committed to leading the development of responsible and sustainable real estate investing and to achieving, ourselves, net zero carbon.
We are an ambitious people business using the latest developments in technology and data analytics, providing innovative advice supported by indepth local market intelligence.
We’re proud that our recruitment approach has balance and diversity at its heart. Our culture is accessible for everyone, celebrating and facilitating diverse backgrounds and perspectives.
