Blackbrook was established on the principle that commercial real estate occupiers are better served investing their capital in their core business activities and growth initiatives, rather than tying up capital in real estate assets.
Blackbrook provides strategic capital to companies through sustainable Sale-Leaseback and Build to Suit financing solutions, as well as specialising in Net Lease real estate acquisitions and the speculative development of logistics facilities, providing the critical supply chain infrastructure needed to support business growth and meet consumer demands. We seek opportunities where we can add significant value for tenants looking to grow their businesses, while also generating permanent upside through transitioning to a more environmentally sustainable future.
Blackbrook has a long track record of investing in supply chain assets, and other mission-critical Net Lease real estate where we see long-term underlying value. Our world-class team has experience extending to over €20 billion of real estate investments in more than 20 countries across Europe and North America. This enables us to guarantee a highly efficient and streamlined transaction process.
We have no short-term exit requirements and are focused on delivering a reliable and efficient capital source to our tenants and development partners so they can focus on the growth of their businesses, while at the same time investing in inflation-protected security of income and ensuring long-term asset-value growth and preservation.

Alongside every investment made by Blackbrook, we support the local community through charitable contributions in a manner that both we and our occupiers believe will have the most impact.
Blackbrook’s sustainability program primarily supports community real estate ESG improvement, social and charitable initiatives in the regions where we invest, as well as in education and healthcare, and making donations towards crisis management funds. Blackbrook also supports employee’s own charitable initiatives through direct and matching donations.
