We are a UK real estate investment manager, formed in 2010. Our strong and cohesive fund management team has worked together for nearly 20 years and has a track record of delivering outperformance for investors.
LIM manages unlisted property vehicles on behalf of institutional investors seeking indirect exposure to the UK. Lothbury Property Trust (LPT) is our flagship fund. We also manage a segregated secure income portfolio for a UK pension fund. We offer an innovative solution to clients, through our core/active strategy. Our predominantly core portfolio of prime assets provides stable returns, while our active management initiatives create additional value and enhance returns.
Since LIM’s launch, we have progressively grown our funds under management to over £2bn. We have attracted new investors to our funds and significantly diversified our robust base of UK and overseas institutional clients, the majority of which are corporate and public sector pension funds. Our clients also include treasury investors, collective investment schemes, insurance companies and charities.

Investment Principles & Strategy
We apply a core/active investment strategy across our funds, giving us a clear competitive advantage which is proven to deliver outperformance throughout the economic cycle. A core portfolio will make up 80–100% of a fund’s portfolio and is designed to achieve stable returns, combined with an active portfolio where the fund undertakes initiatives to add value and enhance returns for investors. The core portfolio comprises prime, high-quality, well-located properties, secured with excellent tenant covenants on strong leases. Low void levels demonstrate the high calibre of the property assets.
The active portfolio enhances our core assets by refurbishing or reconfiguring them, and also includes the development of new sites. This creates new assets without any acquisition costs and provides development profit, further enhancing returns.
Our core/active investment strategy has produced an extremely impressive track record. Lothbury Property Trust has delivered 18 years of excellent performance against the AREF/IPD UK Quarterly Property Fund Index. All of these returns have been delivered without recourse to gearing. Lothbury Property Trust has never closed and has remained open to redemptions which have always been met without suspension or delay.
