Client Scenario

The fund had three aims

  1. house vulnerable individuals and families who are in disruptive temporary accommodation
  2. save the local authorities the high cost of this temporary housing fix
  3. generate a return for investors who wanted to solve the problem and invest in London real estate.

What We Did

Implemented processes to ensure each party was fulfilling the fund's broad financial and ESG intentions.

Wrote documentation to integrate longer term thinking in to the acquisition and refurbishment process.
