Our funding

Flexible capital base

Our fully flexible capital base enables us to fund across the capital structure, ranging from short term debt finance to joint venture equity. We appreciate that every transaction is different and we pride ourselves on creating tailored funding solutions for our clients.

All sectors considered

ASK is not sector specific and will consider residential and commercial transactions across the UK. Our preference is to work with experienced partners on transactions which offer the opportunity to enhance value.

Value-add opportunities

We apply a classic value-add investment approach, identifying high-growth sectors and working with our partners to achieve above average risk-adjusted returns. Historic transactions have ranged from asset management opportunities to comprehensive land assembly projects.
