Building fairer economic growth

We’ve been investing in cities and housing for a decade.

As an investor and asset manager which owns several housebuilding businesses and has significant experience in managing and developing real estate assets, we can make a significant contribution to addressing the issues caused by chronic under-investment. That’s because we can deploy significant quantities of capital, at scale, in multiple geographies, with clarity of purpose.

Levelling up means supporting the UK’s regeneration, in places that need it. From housing to clean energy and from transport infrastructure to city centre regeneration, we are investing across the country for the long-term.
