Retail investment advice for Oaktree Capital.

Project

Over the past two years, Oaktree Capital has engaged Javelin Group to advise and undertake commercial due diligence on a number of potential investment opportunities in the UK and Spain.

Outputs

To successfully advise on potential acquisitions in both the UK and Spain, Javelin Group used its Europe-wide experience and network of associates to develop a ‘traffic light’ analysis of tenants in each asset, identifying asset management priorities and rental growth opportunities. This analysis has led to the acquisition of:

  • Kingfisher Centre, Redditch
  • Project Harrogate portfolio (Dunfermline, Kings Lynn, Loughborough)

Javelin Group’s understanding of retail and retailer performance levels gives us genuine insight into how a scheme is performing. With this knowledge, we are in a better position to value an asset we are potentially about to invest in.
