Benchmark International Advises on the Sale of the Osprey Management Company Limited to K&C Reit Plc
Benchmark International is pleased to announce the sale of the Osprey Management Company Limited to Reit Plc.
Founded in 1985, in order to manage luxury properties for residents who are approaching retirement or have already retired. In general, residents must be aged either over 55 or over 60 years of age. Osprey are dedicated to ensuring the smooth and efficient running of the communal properties in which their clients live & work. Their services are delivered according to requirements and always in an obtrusive and courteous manner.
K&C Reit’s objective is to build a substantial residential property portfolio that generates secure income flow for shareholders through the acquisition of companies owning property assets that have significant inherent historical capital gains. As a company they intend to achieve this objective by acquiring, developing and managing residential property assets, primarily in London and the South East, that will generate an attractive blend of capital growth.
Tim James, Managing Director of K&C Reit said: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to add to our property management resources and buy assets in excellent areas in portfolios that can capitalise on K&C’s considerable property expertise. We are particularly pleased that, in every way, the acquisition supports our investment strategy of seeking and acquiring high quality properties held in special purpose vehicles where the owners are seeking an exit. We also look for properties which, by employing the expert long-term management that K&C can deliver, offer our shareholders the opportunity for greater returns. We feel that Osprey is an ideal proof of our investment strategy.”
On behalf of everyone at Benchmark International, we would like to wish both parties every success for the future.
