Triple win for JLL with Aviva, RLAM and LaSalle national portfolio instructions

Significant instructions boost JLL’s Property & Asset Management team which continues its impressive growth success

​JLL's Property & Asset Management team announced that they have been appointed on a trio of large national portfolio instructions during the first 7 months of 2017. The instructions from Aviva Investors, Royal London Investment Management and LaSalle are worth nearly £10m in revenue over the next 3 years.


Following a competitive tender, JLL were appointed to manage c.45% of the Royal London Asset Management national portfolio in March 2016. The portfolio consists of 130 properties located throughout the UK with core holdings in the South East. Following the successful transition of the initial instruction, JLL were appointed on the remainder of the portfolio from May 2017 which consists of further 150 properties across the office, retail and industrial sectors throughout the UK.


JLL were also  appointed as joint managing agents with Colliers on the Friends Life portfolio for Aviva Investors. JLL are responsible for the management of circa 100 properties with over 500 tenants from mid of July. Approx half of these tenants are in three shopping centres in Windsor, Andover and Guildford and will be managed by the specialist Retail Management team. The remainder of the mixed portfolio will be managed with the existing Aviva Investors funds from JLL's Norwich office.

JLL currently manage c.65% of Aviva's commercial portfolio and this represents a valuable extension to existing instruction.


Finally, JLL was appointed to manage seven additional funds for LaSalle Investment Management with a total of 115 properties and 500 tenancies. This is an addition to their existing instruction and JLL now manage over 65% of LaSalle's portfolio.


Nick Lees, Lead Director UK Property & Asset Management, said; "The commitments made by all three investment firms is a testament to the quality of service we commit to on a daily basis. It's also consistent with our ambitious growth strategy targeting opportunities where we can bring real value to our clients and generate a sustainable return on our efforts."
