Why Real Estate?
Real estate has long been the cornerstone of wealth generation and preservation. Real estate leads the alternative investment asset class, however it is difficult to source, operationally intensive, and too often burdened by high fees and misalignment. This means investors of all types lack efficient access to quality opportunities.
Alongside the security of tangible asset ownership, commercial real estate has historically produced attractive returns relative to other asset classes.
Real estate offers valuable portfolio diversification, but investing in single properties often means writing big checks.
As a hard asset, real estate can provide both intrinsic value and cash flow.

Speed and Certainty
With access to a sizable discretionary balance sheet, allowing us to move quickly and provide developers with surety of execution. We engage with partners anywhere from the pre-bid to post-deposit phase of a process and also consider recapitalisations.
Since we operate outside of the fund model, we are not constrained by a defined cost of capital or duration. We evaluate transactions across the risk spectrum with a focus on generating the most attractive risk-adjusted return.
We believe that skilled operators deserve the freedom to execute, and we structure our partnerships to preserve that dynamic.
We take a fundamental, value-driven approach to investing. We seek to identify commercial real estate opportunities that offer attractive risk-adjusted returns, at compelling prices relative to replacement cost and comparable sales.
We seek opportunities across all asset classes, including multifamily, office, industrial, retail, hospitality, and student housing.
What size transactions does Yeats pursue?
We typically pursue transactions requiring a minimum equity investment of £20 million. We utilise prudent leverage at the property level, in an amount and form that we believe is accretive to each opportunity.
We focus on quality over quantity. We are constantly reviewing opportunities but only act on the small subset we find compelling.
We target income-producing properties in major UK markets with compelling fundamentals. Our focus is primarily on office, multifamily, and hospitality assets, though we broadly seek opportunities with the potential for value-add through capital improvements, proactive lease management, and market positioning.
