> Creation of integrated advisory team for real estate finance and insurance
> Shared office space to drive collaboration and enhanced client service
Arc & Co. and London Belgravia Group have launched a new strategic partnership to offer clients an integrated advisory service across real estate insurance and finance.
The new strategic partnership will provide independent and impartial advice on real estate finance, equity, structural warranties, and general insurance requirements across UK residential and commercial property.
To drive collaboration and further enhance client servicing, the companies will jointly occupy office space at 60-62 Margaret Street, W1W 8TF taking over 5,000 sq ft at the address between them. The shared space will provide a hub where clients can visit to secure comprehensive, best-in-class advice for all of their real estate finance and insurance requirements.
Having worked closely together for some time, the strategic partnership represents a deepening of the relationship between the two firms. By bringing together specialists from across real estate finance and insurance, the new partnership will be able to provide a comprehensive and integrated service, enabling developers to mitigate risk and maintain margins in an increasingly competitive market.
Arc & Co. is a specialist real estate finance advisor – structuring senior debt and equity packages across development, commercial and bridging facilities – while London Belgravia Group provides bespoke insurance and risk management solutions to developers, investors and HNWIs. Combined, the two firms last year advised more than 2,000 clients with development costs in excess of £4 billion.
Giles Fallan, CEO of London Belgravia Group, said: “The partnership with Arc & Co. will offer our clients impartial and connected advice in what has become a crowded and potentially overbearing market. With new entrants in both the latent defect and development finance markets, the importance of seeking third party advice is essential. Working with Arc & Co. we have assisted many clients to achieve the strongest and most cost-effective finance and insurance available.”
Andrew Robinson, CEO of Arc & Co., added: “We are always looking for best in class service providers to ensure our clients’ projects deliver on time and maximise profitability. These types of partnerships allow us to team up with the best in the industry and make use of their extensive experience. We have been working with London Belgravia Group for three years now and have always been impressed by their knowledge and professionalism.”
