Our Sectors Real Estate

A longstanding feature of One Search’s offering, our participation in the Real Assets sector started soon after our incorporation in 2006 with a sequence of mandates for Telereal Trillium, the city-based Real Assets Manager which was building out substantially at the time. Our exposure to the space has increased consistently year-on-year, and we now boast an enviable portfolio of clients right across the Real Estate spectrum:

Private Equity/Investment Management

We work with a number of well-known Private Equity houses and Investment Managers which predominantly have a pan-European focus, including GreenOak, Apollo, Oaktree and Goldman Sachs’ REPIA business. The range of role types we cover is as broad as the range of levels we recruit at, covering everything from Investment roles through Asset Management roles with the likes of Rob Sim’s Europa Capital to IR/Capital Raising positions for clients like LGIM.


For many years we have worked closely with a wide range of advisory businesses in the Real Estate space, from small boutiques specialised in the space through to major professional services firms such as EY, whose advisory functions in turn range from M&A through Capital Raising to Real Estate Financing advisory on both the Private and Public Sector sides. We also partner with those Real Estate investors and developers who have internal advisory arms, with notable successes including the build-out of the Financial Consulting team at GVA, placing Director Alastair Carmichael from RBS, and an entire team under his direction.

Real Estate Finance

Known for our very strong position with the leading banks in Structured Finance, it follows that this extends through to the Real Estate teams which are bolted on to several of these lending institutions. We work with some of the biggest and best names in the space including BAML, Deutsche Bank, Lloyds and RBS, but also pride ourselves on the relationships we hold with niche players in this space. Mandates successfully closed include a long list of positions from front office origination and execution through to relationship and portfolio management.
