Creating compelling real asset investments to match your investment objectives.

Who we are

Amiri Capital is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority as an investment adviser and manager with proven experience and in-depth understanding of real asset investments.

We have advised on investments for sovereign wealth funds, institutions and family offices, many of which are based in the GCC and Southeast Asia.

With a specialist focus on larger transactions in the real estate market, we’ve advised on over £1bn of successful private equity investments into UK and European assets.

What we do

By combining our bespoke, client-focused approach and innovative thinking we identify strategic real asset investment opportunities and match them to your specific, and ultimately unique, investment objectives.

 

The strong relationships that we hold across the investment community provide us with deep market access into UK and European real estate, clean energy and global forestry.

 

Through every aspect of an investment we strive always to act with integrity and in the best interests of our clients. If we believe an investment is unsuited to a client’s particular investment profile we will advise accordingly.

How we work

Advise

By taking a strategic, structural and cyclical view we are able to assess objectively any real asset investment opportunities that may arise.

Match

Every investment is matched with a client’s specific risk, capital and timing preferences.

Structure

We optimise the structure of investments, taking into account any capital structure and tax requirements.

Deliver

Our team’s focus is on every aspect of the investment process; from initial consultation and transaction right through post investment management to maturity or exit.
