Perfect Platform

First Industrial provides the perfect platform for investors seeking preferential development returns and exposure to the real estate industrial market. In the last 3 years the business has secured over £55m of profit for its development partners. First Industrial has an established track record working in joint venture and co-development relationships with a wide range of private, corporate and large scale institutional partners in a variety of financial structures. The business is able to act as principal or development manager, offering you flexibility and transparency. The First Industrial teams takes a pro-active and hands-on approach to development preferring to focus on its sector niche, than be a ‘generalist’ in what continues to be a highly competitive market.

Investment Strategy

First Industrial will continue to target underpriced property assets, which have attractive long-term fundamentals, where our development expertise can unlock latent value. Our acquisitions are underpinned by an underlying asset value, with transactions being structured to have substantial downside protection. Any residual risk is managed and mitigated through our disciplined due diligence procedure that accurately quantifies risk and provides a detailed knowledge to investors of the market and potential upside. Typically the team will create value through the planning, pre-let, construction and onward sale process, with deals being structured to offer flexibility of drawdown to maximise return on capital employed.

Our aim is to generate you the maximum return, whilst minimising risk and expenditure. We will continue to originate interesting, off-market deals that outperform the market
