AlphaReal awarded £240 million investment portfolio

AlphaReal, the specialist real assets investment manager focused on secure income strategies, has recently been awarded a £240 million portfolio of ground rents, long lease real estate and infrastructure assets to manage on behalf of a large UK DB Pension Scheme.

The appointment of AlphaReal to manage this portfolio, in addition to an existing portfolio already managed for the same client, increases this portfolio to over £440 million.

Scott Gardner, Partner, Business Development at AlphaReal said: “The depth of our relationships and the breadth and quality of our proposition made AlphaReal the best choice to be awarded the management of these assets. In challenging times, we continue to grow as we find opportunity and value for our investors.”

AlphaReal invests in UK and European assets with predictable secure long-term cash flows across a range of investments such as commercial ground rents – where the investment manager is the market leader in the UK, renewable infrastructure, social infrastructure and secured lending.

Gordon Smith, Fund Manager at AlphaReal said: “We are delighted to have been selected as asset manager for this large, diverse portfolio. The allocation to AlphaReal recognises our expertise in both origination and management of real estate and infrastructure assets, and our experienced team that incorporates operational real estate expertise and fixed income skills.” 

AlphaReal works with a wide range of UK, European and international investors, including pension funds and other large institutional investors.
