Commercial property investors and advisors

Navigating the complex landscape of commercial property investment and development requires expertise, a keen eye for the right opportunity and the right team by your side.

If managed proactively, it has the potential for impressive long-term value appreciation.

As a family-run wealth guardian Maritime Capital have a long, successful history of mentoring, nurturing and safeguarding our clients' wealth, whether recently inherited or earned over many decades.​

Our personalised approach truly sets us apart, offering a bespoke property service for those who wish to remain firmly in control but prefer not to deal with the day-to-day tasks of property investment and development.

Our corporate acumen, legal knowledge and decades of experience mean we'll provide you with a clear profile of your likely investment return.

Why invest in commercial property?

Investing in commercial properties can offer significant benefits, but in order to ensure its profitability, an active approach to both investment and development is required.

Residential property investments are normally lower yielding and more predictable, while commercial investment and development tends to be less predictable and higher yielding.

Naturally within the commercial sector there are stable investments - for example, an office let to the government for 25 years. But there are also higher-risk options - such as a department store let to a high street retailer on a 10-year deal.

The harder to asset-manage the investment or development, the greater the risk - but the higher the likely return.

Investing in the UK commercial property market requires due diligence and a deep understanding of the various property types available, such as office space, retail, industrial units, hospitality and warehousing.

It's also crucial to consider factors like commercial law, corporation tax, energy costs and planning permission that can impact the profitability of your investment.

Understanding the UK commercial property market

The UK commercial property market has seen considerable changes in recent years. With the rising popularity of e-commerce, high street shops are evolving into multi-purpose mixed-use spaces, while office blocks are being redesigned to suit the changing needs of businesses.​

Meanwhile, industrial units and warehousing are experiencing increased demand due to the growth of online shopping.

In such a dynamic market, it's essential for commercial property investors and developers to stay abreast of property trends and adapt their strategies accordingly.

Whether you're a private investor venturing into the commercial property space or an established property company looking for alternative solutions, Maritime Capital have the acuity to guide and advise you.

Finding commercial property that's the perfect fit for you

With your input, we'll assemble a property portfolio that is completely tailored to you.

In the commercial sphere we provide two distinct approaches, the first focusing on commercial property investment - purchasing an asset which is already let to a tenant on a long-term deal, or purchasing a property which is vacant and needs re-letting.

We’re also experts in commercial development.

For instance; a major retailer leaves a well-situated high street property, and rather than find another occupier, we would purchase the site and fund the conversion of the building into a mixed-use scheme with a smaller retail unit and residential upper floors.

Maritime Capital’s years of development experience makes us the clear choice to run these kind of assets.

By having a detailed understanding of the property development and investment process, we’re able to analyse the component parts that create value.

Our tailor-made approach creates an effective asset-management strategy that carefully aligns with your personal needs, while taking into account your objectives and investment risk levels.

If you have a particular interest in or link to a specific sector, geographic area or project, we'll endeavour to incorporate that into your commercial property investment portfolio.

We advise and assist our clients to make the right decisions, no matter what the context.
