Investment Services

Established in 1990, LCP is a property investment company specialising in maximising investor returns in prime London.

Stock is scarce in prime London, with only around 3,500 properties changing hands a year, making it challenging to secure the best opportunities, be it individual apartments, freehold blocks or mixed-use buildings. LCP's reputation ensures we hear about them first.

LCP focuses on the ‘mainstream’ rental market in prime London which comprises 60% of the market. This consists of small apartments that appeal most to international tenants. This sector demonstrates an attractive combination of long-term capital growth and rental returns, traditionally showing low volatility and little correlation to the performance of equities.

LCP typically look for heritage properties typical of prime London. These are unique, highly demanded and offer added value potential through renovation and reconfiguration. This contrasts with other parts of London where there is an oversupply of expensive new units for purchase and rental.

Despite a constantly changing global environment, London residential property is still viewed long-term as a safe haven asset class. London continues to benefit from the rule of law, top-class education, a diverse and liberal culture, an international business language and the GMT time zone.
