      Acquisition of the largest, and highest valued at £249m, rural property portfolio in the UK

      Our history of managing land and rural property as an investment - and forward thinking sustainable investment offer - means we’re well placed help meet your goals.

      By only identifying assets that fulfil your specific investment requirements, we’ll save you time and money, scouring the market for opportunities and staying in tune with the rural land sector to identity those sought after off-market opportunities.

      The only assets we target for purchase are those suiting your investment horizon, income requirements and appetite for risk. Once under management, we look to capitalise on development and asset management opportunities or seek alternative uses to maximise income and deliver capital uplift.

      However, you may be seeking to harness the tax efficiency benefits of agricultural land. Our renowned analytical approach to identifying and optimising opportunity means we’ll assess all the options and help you make the best farm investment decisions.

      We only focus on those investment opportunities that deliver on your remit, removing long deliberations and future proofing your investment portfolio
