In 2009 we commenced our investment into the Danish real estate market, directly acquiring a large number of high quality real estate assets in Central and Greater Copenhagen. A mixed portfolio of 34 buildings was assembled with a market value in excess of £200 million across multiple sectors comprising residential, retail, restaurants, offices, managed office/co-working, student accommodation and industrial.
The investment into Denmark involved an intensive asset management and capital expenditure programme strategically deployed by our London office to create and improve value. This culminated in successful individual property disposals and portfolio sales between 2015 and 2021 which took advantage of strong demand from domestic and international private and institutional investors.
We continue to retain ownership of a number of income producing commercial buildings and are considering new investment opportunities in line with our long term commitment to Denmark.
