Our approach

Whilst unconstrained in terms of its asset selection, Somerston seeks to concentrate its intellectual and financial capital on a manageable number (typically 5-10) of strategic initiatives at any one time, each having the potential to make a meaningful contribution to the Group’s overall performance.

Assessing risk, enhancing returns

Strong local knowledge is crucial to accurately assess the risk profile and financial feasibility of any project. Through careful analysis, Somerston target assets offering the potential for above average income growth and/or capital appreciation over the medium term. Such potential may arise systemically within a given market due to the forces of supply and demand and/or at the project level where the application of the Group’s expertise offers scope for additional value creation.

Somerston’s decentralised operating model maximises flexibility in the structuring of investments through single or multi-level partnerships and joint ventures.
