We specialise in the acquisition of Net-Leased industrial real estate assets, and the provision of structured corporate Sale-Leaseback and Build to Suit development financing.
Our primary sector focus and specialism includes: logistics, light manufacturing, cold storage, healthcare, hospitality, strategic office and specialty retail assets.
Blackbrook Capital 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 valuable capital in real estate assets.
We look for opportunities where we can add significant value for tenants who are looking to grow their businesses, while also creating long-term value through transitioning to a greener and more environmentally sustainable future.
Our team has experience extending to over €7 billion of real estate investments in more than 20 countries across Europe. We are experts at delivering stable, robust, long-term inflation-protected income and asset value growth to our investors.
