Carlton & Co makes a move into London

14/06/2012 09:16

We’re pleased to announce that we have recently opened a London office to help us strengthen our links with major investors in the City.

Our new office in Berkeley Square will help us to meet increasing demands from some of the UK’s major pension funds which have recently stepped up interest in the residential sector.

Meeting interest in the residential sector

Besides these major pension funds, we’re also working with various other London-based institutional investors – including specialist real estate funds, infrastructure funds and their advisors – which are keen to increase their involvement in the residential sector.

As we’ve previously highlighted, a significant funding gap has been caused by a 63 per cent cut in government grant to build affordable homes – a gap which has only been exacerbated by the economic downturn and the banks reigning in traditional long-term investment in this sector. This has led to a lack of support for the delivery of much-needed affordable housing projects across the UK.

But we’re now better placed to offer a solution

While County Durham will always be our main base, the opening of our London office – which operates alongside the Aycliffe office – will ensure that we are well placed not only to support a range of partners in this dynamic marketplace, but that we’re also on hand to accelerate much-needed and large-scale institutional investment into the UK housing sector.

The role of Carlton & Co is twofold: we create long-term funding solutions to support the delivery of large-scale housing projects across the country, and we also help housing delivery partners to create suitable investment grade assets that meet the needs of our investment partners.

The housing sector is changing, and large-scale institutional investment offers sustainable long-term funding opportunities to support the delivery of housing led regeneration projects.
