Craigard is a vibrant and opportunist organisation adept at looking ahead to future market trends.

We endeavour to bring inspiration to our projects and aim to add value in a proactive and focused style. There are, as a result, some sparkling successes in our story and robust recovery plays made from the depths of the recession.

Our progress over fifteen years has been built on a philosophy of thoughtful identification of opportunities, careful analysis with particular attention to detail, and hard graft.


In our formative years the overheated investment market led us to target vacant properties for enhancement and refurbishment where there was a balance of risk and return. Over 600,000 sq ft of primarily industrial property was either let or sold in our first three years.

We then battened down the hatches through the worst of the economic storms between 2008 and 2010 – letting up any vacant space and stabilising bank debt. Since then we have contracted about £86million of acquisitions, secured around £68million of private equity and exited twenty projects with a value very close to £65million.

We have an exciting twenty one asset portfolio under management valued at just under £50million. In 2019 we saw an overheated investment market aligned with Brexit uncertainties, and as a consequence we adopted a more cautious approach to new acquisitions.

Economic recession as a consequence of the Covid19 pandemic will further impact on tenant demand so our caution was fortuitous. We now expect a stalled occupier market but do expect to see select opportunities over the coming months.

Why Us?

we always co-invest

We pride ourselves that we always co-invest and we make our profit on an incentivised performance basis after an investor priority return, so interests are aligned.

syndications and our investors

The 2008/2009 banking crisis led to a need for significantly more equity than previously, and to this end a proven syndication structure was adopted in 2011. Since then we have been fortunate to be supported not just by our two original funders Atkins and Deeley but a total of around 50 High Net Worth investors – many of whom are in multiple syndicates and all of whom have been introduced on personal recommendation.

long-term relationships

The foundation of our success is the professional and lasting working relationships with our advisory team built up over many years. Everyone understands how we work, what we need to close out a deal and gives us that little bit extra when we need it.
