Hotels are a truly global asset class, yet dealing in hotel investments requires an in-depth knowledge of hotel operations coupled with intimate familiarity with the local real estate markets in which they trade. Our Hospitality Capital Markets team provides a complete advisory service to investors, whether buying, selling or holding hotel assets and businesses, combining operational understanding with up-to-the-minute real estate knowledge.
Hotels and hospitality assets are owned and operated under a myriad of complex structures unlike any other real estate class. Our investment professionals live and breath hospitality, with diverse backgrounds from hotel operations, real estate and corporate finance. We advise all types of investors from private individuals through to global institutions, navigating the various interests of brands, operators, asset managers, equity capital and debt providers.
The sale of a hotel carries the additional complexities of business interruption and confidentiality concerns. More than just brokers, our professionals ensure a sale process is run tightly and efficiently, always in its clients’ best interests. If you are looking to sell a property, we will help you to maximise your return and minimise your risk.
You may be wishing to acquire a hospitality asset or platform for short, medium or long-term gain, whether to grow an existing portfolio or enter a new market.
