IO’s success is founded upon its ability to source high quality investment stock, and to apply an innovative and intensive approach to asset management in order to drive income and capital growth – ‘the IO System’.
IO buys quality, income-producing properties capable of delivering long term income distribution, and improves them through hands-on management and targeted investment to deliver outperformance. Assets are selected in strong urban locations with limited competing supply and good prospects for growth.
This rigorous selection and meticulous management enables IO to assemble and grow portfolios that deliver attractive risk-adjusted returns, with an emphasis on income, and which provide strong rental and capital growth.
Our interests are aligned with those of our partners, typically through co-investment, which demonstrates our confidence in and commitment to the investment strategies we pursue.
We establish structures that ensure financial and cultural alignment with our capital partners, and which can be tailored to their individual requirements and risk appetite. Our portfolios are specifically designed to produce high quality, distributable income streams with scope for rental and capital growth, led by carefully implemented asset management initiatives.
Our depth of experience in the UK industrial market, extensive asset database and strong relationships with owners, banks and agents nationwide enable our investment team to source and deliver the most attractive opportunities in the sector. These deals are supported by detailed financial modelling, with an emphasis on risk analysis and an institutional approach to due diligence in conjunction with best in class professional advisors.
We undertake detailed financial modelling at both asset and portfolio level, informed by specialist advice, depth of market knowledge and pre-acquisition tenant interviews.
A regularly updated Business Plan establishes key targets, risks and management initiatives. Each individual unit is viewed as a property in its own right and is analysed accordingly, enabling us to implement and execute detailed business plans and ultimately to maximise returns for our investors.
Our attention to detail and hands on approach are at the heart of our market-leading reputation and are fundamental to the delivery of out-performance to our investors. Our approach is both analytical and entrepreneurial; strong market research and detailed quantitative analysis support practical and pro-active decision making on the ground. Our occupier-led approach enables us to build strong relationships and to spot opportunities to grow income and add value.
