The Company is targeting an annualised 8pps dividend for the financial period ending 31 March 2018 and the interim financial period to 30 September 2018.

Additional capital value is achieved through asset management initiatives, including repositioning assets to add value, crystallising value through rent review and lease re-gears, improving the quality of the income stream and altering properties where appropriate.


  • Offer priced at 100.5p per share
  • 8 pence per share dividend = c.8% yield

  • £139 million previously invested in a portfolio of 31 assets across multiple sectors


(Please note that these risks represent the judgement of Cornhill Capital, there may be additional risks represented in the prospectus)

  • The UK leaving the European Union, resulting in a knock to investor confidence in the UK Property market.
  • Downturn in the global economy resulting in a drop in the UK equities market.
  • As the fund invests into property, if they were forced to liquidate down the portfolio to meet obligations, they may be unable to.
  • As the fund is going to be leveraged, if they raise too much debt and fail to pay this back, it may impact their ability to pay out dividends to shareholders.

See What Our Clients Have to Say

I have been dealing with Cornhill for two years now and I’m very happy with the service. I’m confident that my account manager has my interests at heart and I appreciate the personal attention provided. I also get access to new issues, placings and market information usually only available to institutional investors. I would recommend Cornhill to active investors.

Mr. James Private Investor

Cornhill provide an excellent service for clients wishing to invest in IPOs and placings which are not generally available through the large retail client stock brokers. The terms and discounts available are generally the same as those offered to institutional investors, furthermore the AIM quoted investment opportunities often qualify or EIS tax reliefs.

Risk Warning pre-IPO’s, IPO’s & Secondary Issues

Investments in pre-IPO’s and IPO’s involve a high degree of risk and are not suitable for all investors. A pre-IPO issue is the funding given to the company before listing. There is no guarantee that the company will list, but if it does then there is normally an increase from the pre-IPO to the IPO price, representing a profit. However, even when a company is listed on, say,  the AIM market, it is considered to be a high-risk investment, and will have wider spreads on price and be more illiquid and it may be difficult to sell the shares on a short-term basis and in some circumstances it may be difficult to sell at any price. All investments made into an IPO or new issue or in a secondary issue should always be made solely on the basis of the information provided in the relevant prospectus and any other supplementary documentation. The specific risks will be detailed in the prospectus but the value of your investment can go down as well as up and you may not get back the money you invested.  You should be sure that you fully understand the purpose of, and the reason for, the fundraising. Before you decide to invest you should obtain information regarding the business plan and note the risk factors. If you have any doubts about the suitability of an investment you should seek professional advice.
