C&W works with investors and owner-occupiers who wish to maximise performance through high quality property and asset management. You may want to:
Develop solutions across the entire asset lifecycle
You want to maximise the value your asset from acquisition through management operations and eventual sale or re-finance. This requires a Property and Asset Management provider that can integrate purchase, due diligence, management, leasing, and construction, and sale or re-capitalisation. You want a provider that can enhance the investment’s value by increasing income, minimising expenses, and maximising perceived asset value.
Focus on green initiatives
Our role as Property and Asset Managers is to protect investors from a value differential arising from non-compliant or poorly rated stock. It is also to enhance your reputation as responsible investors.
Stabilise distressed assets
A timely, skilful and informed response is important in determining the optimal solution for troubled real estate holdings. Our role is pivotal in closely monitoring trading conditions, covenants and proactively talking to tenants to keep trading. We consult with multiple stakeholders, often framed within a duty of care. Our manage to let program for void units is supplemented with actively seeking additional income opportunities.
