Managing Partners launches property fund to German investors


Fund management company Managing Partners has launched its property fund to German investors.

The British Property Opportunities Fund, which is an open ended investment company, targets an annual return of ten per cent-plus by investing in both residential and commercial property within the UK, including distressed portfolios, high yield rental units, development opportunities, leasebacks and reversionary gains schemes.
Managing Partners believes this year is an opportunistic time for European investors to get involved in the UK property market, and take advantage of the softened prices currently available.

Following a 25 per cent fall in sterling versus the euro and a drop of 50 per cent in property value since its peak, foreign investors are making a beeline into the UK’s commercial and residential property sector.

The launch of this fund is in response to the particularly strong appetite German investors are having for the UK property market.
Jeremy Leach, managing director of Managing Partners, says: “We have received some strong feedback from brokers and institutions in Germany that indicates investors are finding UK property a very attractive proposition. Investors looking to take advantage of the poor performing pound and discounted prices should look to the UK property market, which is likely to provide one of the great investment opportunities in 2010, particularly for investors who have not seen exceptional growth in the German property market.”
The minimum investment in the fund is GBP50,000 or currency equivalent (EUR56,925). It is available to institutional investors and retail investors via a number of wraps and insurance products including Quantum Leben.
