Returns should be generated through fundamentally improving the underlying asset and not reliant solely the tail wind of a favorable market.
Developed market contacts and relationships are vital for any property investment firm, and the Accrue Capital team has worked to establish long-term partnerships with the most relevant organisations.
This has enabled us to execute most of our transactions off-market, attract leading joint venture partners and secure favorable debt terms for acquisitions.
Accrue have several service agencies working alongside us across our various properties and portfolios.
Accrue has established itself as something of a specialist in the acquisition and optimisation of mixed-use portfolios (retail, offices, industrial and residential) comprising properties with individual lot sizes of £2-£50 million.
We are able to analyse large portfolios of assets in a timely and efficient manner and are able to acquire within tight timescales. We have experience of SPV acquisitions, often with complicated financing structures and legacy tax issues, as well as straight forward property purchases.
We have a proven record of accomplishment in optimising value by engaging with our tenants and adopting a very hands-on approach. Our in-house team of property managers enables us to quickly integrate large portfolio acquisitions, and this ensures we can implement our business plans at the earliest opportunity.
We have experience of corporate acquisitions as well as straight forward property purchases. Typically, private property companies can be wrapped up in complicated ownership and tax structures, which would put off many investors. We have considerable experience dealing with cross-border transactions across a broad range of jurisdictions.
With our combined experience across real estate, financing, legal and tax structuring, we can create deliverable transactions, offering solutions for vendors and significant opportunity for our investors.
Accrue and its partners invest in substantial standalone investments centers established via both on and off market transactions. These vary from prime flagship properties to Core+ and more opportunistic properties.
Accrue seeks to add value via a combination of lease restructuring, change of use, repositioning, refurbishment, and wholesale redevelopment where required. Accrue has experience of orchestrating investments from origination through to exit and works closely with a trusted team of legal and tax professionals where required. Accrue operates discretely, maintaining partner and transaction confidentiality as required.
Accrue structures investment and development finance and lends on first charged stretched senior basis, or as a second charge lender in conjunction with a senior lender, typically up to 80% loan to value. We deliver bespoke competitive loan facilities ranging from £1m up to £10m.
Based on our collective experience in investment and development finance, having arranged/structured in excess of £1.5bn of loans, we understand the complexities faced in a challenging funding market. We have the necessary skills to provide a funding solution specific to each individual transaction.
