Real Estate Asset Management

In today’s tight market and constrained funding environment the real opportunity to create value comes through what we call ‘intelligent’ asset management.

Cordatus is highly experienced in delivering this type of asset management which is defined by the unique combination of skills that we possess. Our core strengths of robust analysis, careful asset management and alert adaptability means we offer a reliable platform for growth.

  • An experienced and accomplished track record.
  • A ‘client’ mentality - each of our directors has extensive experience as clients so we bring a 360 degree perspective to our work, and understand our clients’ priorities. This has been a key factor in many of our successful appointments.
  • A strategic approach to the formation, implementation and monitoring of our business plans.
  • The level of experience applied to assets – directors lead every single project.

Successful Asset Management is a hands-on business and we like to get our hands dirty.

Real Estate Investment

We source and access investment opportunities across the UK to identify those with added value potential. In particular, we seek investments that possess strong fundamentals but are underperforming their potential.

We aim to reposition investments through enterprising active management and risk controlled development. Before proceeding with an opportunity, we carry out a thorough analysis of the investment, assessing its risk and returns.

Once an investment is under offer, we work with investment partners and funders to carry out an exhaustive due diligence exercise to ensure the purchase price reflects the true value of the investment. The due diligence process forms the basis for a detailed business plan.

Real Estate Development Management

The Cordatus team has extensive development experience and collectively we have delivered several million square feet of retail and commercial space.

Our detailed knowledge of the development process allows us to identify opportunities that may not be immediately apparent and to manage the development to completion. Not all asset managers possess these specialist skills. This experience allows Cordatus to drive greater returns from existing assets.

We have particular experience managing relationships with third parties such as local authorities, regional development agencies and town centre partnerships. These relationships are critical to the success of development initiatives.
