Asset Management

Ripley has been created to offer a fully integrated property Asset Management service, with founder-led involvement on a day to day basis.

Supported by an integrated Property Management Service, Ripley Asset Management draws on the extensive experience of its founding Partners and their substantial market contacts to source, transact and profitably manage property acquisitions. Ripley are not limited either geographically or by sector, with recent acquisitions stretching from Aberdeen to Southampton.

As importantly, Ripley are not hindered by underperforming legacy assets or excessive debt, with a philosophy of focussing on strong income flows, active management to increase asset value and appropriate levels of gearing.

In order that their interest are aligned with those of their Clients, Ripley's fee structures centre around cost-based annual management charges, with the majority of the business's income being derived from profit share above pre-agreed profit performance levels.

Longcross Property Investment Fund

Appointed as Asset Manager to the Longcross Property Investment Fund, a Guernsey registered Open Ended Investment Company, Ripley acquired the Fund's first assets in October 2010.

The Fund is entirely unencumbered by previous acquisitions and with minimal debt, is unique insofar that it will ultimately provide a balanced mix of commercial and residential properties, with a minimum 5 year life.

The acquired Gold 11 portfolio comprised 18 modern freehold offices, located in the South East of England in Luton, Stevenage, Stokenchurch, Winnersh, Wokingham and Southampton. The properties were acquired from Administrators and were substantially let, to high quality tenants.

Since acquiring the properties, Ripley have undertaken a rolling programme of maintenance and enhanced the value of the portfolio through new lettings and lease renegotiations. Value has also been realised through the disposal of a small number of under-performing elements of the portfolio, as substantial gains over their acquisition costs.

Ripley Asset Management's on going remit is to undertake an acquisition programme for the Fund, actively manage the acquired properties on a day-to-day basis, appoint and monitor marketing agents, increase value through enhancing the lease terms of current tenants and agree new lettings/ sales as appropriate.

A number of new acquisitions currently being undertaken.
