Avignon Capital, the European property investment and asset management firm has acquired a UK portfolio of 32 assets across a mix of industrial, retail and mixed-use properties. The properties contain a collection of high-quality tenants over a large geographical diversification, with a combination of long leases enhancing security of income vs shorter term leases offering short-term value creating opportunities.
Avignon Capital’s active ‘hands-on’ asset management strategy will optimise operating income and enhance additional value through effective tenant management and exploiting targeted value enhancing initiatives.
The strong long-term fundamentals of the UK property market continue to make it an attractive location to invest. The UK remains a focus for Avignon and this portfolio with well-located and high-quality assets will provide consistent income returns in conjunction with sustained capital value.
