  • Contact Dan Bayley, +44 (0) 20 7338 4444


The results

  • Met target to invest in higher risk/higher return opportunities in Central London.
  • Henderson Global Investors should be able to outperform IPD by entering into an innovatively structured development at Regent Quarter, N1.
  • Secured mixed use project with a total 100,000 sq ft of office, residential and retail space.
  • Will create a circa £65 million investment from a site worth around £12.5 million.

The challenges

  • Henderson had money to invest for its Central London Office Fund. They were prepared to invest in fringe/emerging markets and prepared to commit to some development risk to enhance their returns. 

What we did

  • We secured an “off market” introduction of Henderson to P&O, the site owner, who had secured a mixed use planning consent for the site.
  • We worked with both investor and landowner to create a joint venture structure that worked for both parties.
  • Support with bespoke financial analysis in order to analyse the impact on both parties of different market scenarios.
  • Provided evidence of historic and future activity and pricing in commercial and residential markets in this emerging London location.
