We advised Capital Trust Limited on a series of acquisitions and disposals of investments in UK commercial property by offshore entities that act as funding vehicles for its Ultra High-Net-Worth Individual (UHNWI) Middle East resident clients.

Capital Trust Limited is the UK affiliate company of the Capital Trust Group, a corporate finance and investment fund group that assists in, initiates and advises on investments in private equity, mezzanine and real estate funds in the US, Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

We were able to bring our considerable expertise in the UK property sector by putting together a team experienced in commercial property acquisition and disposal, holding structures, investment vehicles and tax. 

Significance of the matter:

  • High value of investments - £35 million in aggregate
  • Commercial advice required to facilitate the efficient conclusion of often complex negotiations between buyers, sellers, fund providers and off-shore authorities.

This has been a strong area for overseas investors in recent years owing to the attractiveness of UK real estate, in terms of absolute returns and security to clients in more volatile regions.
