  • "We help our clients to understand the drivers and risks, and to spot where opportunities lie"

    Ollie Saunders, Lead Director, Alternatives

  • "With a forecast shortfall of over 300,000 care beds, 4,000 GP premises not fit for purpose and a critically ageing NHS real estate - there has never been a better time to invest"

    Phil Hall, Healthcare

  • "There is only half a square foot of self storage per head of population in the UK and even less on the continent - the market is still undersupplied"
