About Grosvenor

Grosvenor is an international organisation whose activities span urban property, food & agtech, rural estate management and support for philanthropic initiatives.

We develop, manage and invest to improve property and places across many of the world’s leading cities. In the food & agtech sector our growing investment portfolio includes some of the industry’s most innovative businesses working towards a better food system. We manage rural estates and their environmentally sensitive habitats, while supporting charitable initiatives targeted at vulnerable young people.

We are a values-led organisation which represents the Grosvenor family and share a common purpose – to deliver lasting commercial, social and environmental benefit – addressing today’s needs while taking responsibility for those of future generations. 

At Grosvenor, we are committed to fostering a collaborative and inclusive working environment for our employees. We seek to recruit and develop people who share our values of integrity, respect and trust, and have the skills and ambition to help us successfully deliver our strategy. We stick to our promises, build lasting relationships, and work closely and responsibly with local communities.

About Grosvenor Diversified Property Investments (DPI)

We diversify Grosvenor’s property portfolio by investing in joint ventures and funds with like-minded partners to grow and diversify our exposure in regions, sectors and investment types that are beyond the focus of Grosvenor’s regional operating companies. Our investments have enabled us to help promote sustainability within the built environment and enhance the wellbeing of tenants and communities to ensure that our activities can make a positive difference to society.

We are thoughtful property investors who target opportunities which generate value through pricing dislocation, changing sector dynamics, emerging market trends, cyclical movements or change of use/ repositioning. We work with teams who embrace innovation, sustainability, and efficiency with a clear understanding of the rapidly changing demands of real estate – whose activity has a positive impact on society.

Since our first partnership in 2012, we have invested across Europe, North and South America, Sub-Saharan Africa and Australia committing over £700m in equity alongside a variety of specialist local property partners. Our team is able to invest in opportunities across the globe and in all property sectors (including but not limited to industrial and logistics, student housing, residential, office, healthcare, and life sciences). We only invest Grosvenor’s balance sheet capital meaning that we do not have the time pressures associated with third party closed-ended vehicles, giving us a relatively unique proposition against our typical private equity competitors.

Together, our team of high-calibre individuals has delivered strong commercial returns. Of our 16 investments fully realised to date, we have delivered Grosvenor a weighted average IRR of 22.2% pa and an equity multiple of 1.7 times.

At its core, DPI is a small team of principled, hard-working, conscientious, experienced, talented people with global relationships and a strong collegiate culture. We consider this to be rare, hard to achieve and important to understand, in order to help ensure that the successful formula to date is nurtured and sustained.
