A specialist in niche areas

We have been active in real estate for more than a decade.

In the earlier years, our firm was active in a variety of different sectors, including real estate. In 2016, on the back of a remarkable track record in UK real estate investments in particular, we decided to dedicate ourselves fully to real estate, including several property market niches. We have committed significant resources and have a thorough understanding of the market landscape within several key niches within UK property markets.

Real estate debt

Within Real Estate lending specifically, we have established 2 separate businesses:

  • Our Real Estate Finance division, a dedicated advisory business, part of Excellion Capital; and
  • Fintex Confluence, the UK secured lending arm of our sister company, Fintex Capital

Hotels

Another arena within UK real estate to which our team is fully dedicated is:

  • Hotels – with a focus on London and Edinburgh. Specifically, the principals of Excellion have established Manex Properties, a Joint Venture with the Amano Group (Germany). In H2 2018, Manex acquired Drury House in Covent Garden with a view to developing it into a 140-key Hotel, and planning permission to do so was successfully obtained in H1 2019.

Other areas in UK Real Estate

Other examples of areas within UK real estate in which we have established in-depth insights and transactional experience include:

  • UK Ground Rents, where we transacted in repeat fashion together with an operating partner;
  • Co-working (think: WeWork), where Excellion Investments invested in a majority equity position to support an established operator before successfully exiting our investment to a large private equity house; and
  • Freehold pubs, an area in which we have made multiple investments to back a leading operator, Red Oak Taverns.

  • What we look for Operators with skin-in-the game and a demonstrable track-record. Investments with strong growth potential and asset backing. A close alignment of interests.

  • Experience, access and attention to detail are essential in this market
