      Investment Strategy

      Delivering investment aspirations into real income and overall returns has been at the core of our approach to investment strategy for over 100 years.

      Jesus College, Cambridge

      30+ years and still going strong

      As a knowledgeable and trusted partner in the stewardship of college endowments, we facilitate the development and delivery of a clear strategic vision.

      Investment strategies range from being short to very long term and require an advisor who has long associations with colleges, who understands how colleges, Bursars and investment committees work, and who understands governance and decision-making processes.

      The key to success is a safe pair of hands, operating a no stone unturned approach with an in-depth knowledge of every asset and tenant, avoiding or mitigating costly surprises, and having a robust handle on all legislative requirements.

      Strategising to meet income and return targets for college clients runs through our veins. Discretion, a keen eye for detail, well-reasoned advice from market experts and good tenant relations is what you get when you appoint us.

      From strategic acquisitions for Jesus College on Station Road Corner to acquiring and managing the complex O2 Arena purchase, we are used to the complex and the unique.

      I have found Bidwells good and helpful strategically, looking at what the College needs to do to protect and develop our investments, but also the practical management of the units. Bidwells has understood the long-term aims of the College and offered good advice on balancing the needs of the tenants and our own aspirations.
      Dr Keith Carne, First Bursar, King’s College, Cambridge
