Why Columbia Threadneedle Investments for property?
Our property team is one of the most experienced in the UK with 24 investment professionals. They have on average 16 years of market experience and have been with Columbia Threadneedle Investments for an average of 10 years. This stability has been a key factor in the team’s success. Threadneedle manages property assets of US$10.9bn (£7.6bn, Eur 9.8bn) as at 31 December 2014.
The team uses an active, hands-on approach that emphasises stock selection as the main driver of long-term outperformance. We are flexible buyers and focus on high yielding investments when building our property portfolios, rather than “trophy assets”, which frequently offer lower yields. We also avoid speculative developments due to the inherent risks of locking-up capital for long periods.
