Listening to Gonville & Caius’s requirements, adding our expertise and developing an asset strategy - one which maximises income needed for the day to day running of this Cambridge college. Simply put, this has been our recipe for a long relationship which has delivered for over three decades.

From developing the overall asset strategy for the endowment, through to the creation of individual property strategies, property management and facilities management, Bidwells has been pivotal to the proactive management of the property assets year after year.

We work collaboratively with the College and use sector experts from across our business to comprehensively advise on strategies to optimise income and meet income objectives. 

The college has a strong approach to engaging directly with its tenants, which is fundamental to its success and the longevity of its tenants. Our support for the client’s core retail part of their portfolio has been to introduce experience-based retail offerings to increase footfall, an example of which is the recently opened authorised Harry Potter store in Rose Crescent, Cambridge.

Numerous value-add initiatives in the rural portfolio have delivered sector beating average annual total returns of >15% over the past 15 years. Jointly, our open and engaging tenant approach during the Covid-19 pandemic has achieved near 100% occupancy, by flexing our approach to meet tenants needs. At its core, our approach is founded on a great client/advisor relationship.
