Investment Management

Cromwell’s approach to investment management is driven by our bottom-up House View process which clearly defines what we believe are the compelling investment opportunities within the markets in which we operate.

Our Investment Management team keeps a close eye on the local market, to strategically source and transact on opportunities within the UK with the goal of maximising returns for our investors.  

Our structured investment method encompasses thorough local market and economic research, tenant information and property analysis which is managed through a vigorous and detailed technical, environmental, financing, structuring and legal due diligence process.  

We proactively approach owners, developers and municipalities in the UK market, as well as maintaining excellent relationships with national and local agents, to source deals where we can “buy smart, add value, sell smart”. 

In the UK we are currently actively seeking high quality real estate investments in the office, retail and industrial distribution warehouse / smaller logistics sectors.

Gemini (Eclipse 2006 – 3) CMBS

The Gemini (Eclipse 2006 – 3) portfolio was a workout mandate where Cromwell was appointed by Deloitte LLP, as fixed charge receivers and administrators, to asset manage and sell a portfolio of CMBS assets within the Gemini (Propinvest) property portfolio. 

The portfolio comprised 25 industrial, office, retail and leisure assets located throughout the UK. 

The UK team had a clear remit to improve the income and capital values throughout the portfolio in preparation for an orderly disposal programme, to maximise capital recovery for the receivers. This involved the implementation of an intensive asset management strategy, focussed primarily on existing tenant customers, letting vacant units and repositioning the assets. 

The team completed the asset management and sales process for the receivers ahead of the planned disposal deadline and achieved an overall sale in excess of 13% of the portfolio’s latest valuation.
