The healthcare team at Knight Frank are thrilled to win the award for ‘Property Consultants of the Year – Capital Markets’ at this year’s HealthInvestor Awards. This is much appreciated recognition as leaders in our field, as valuer to the majority of the UK’s major operators, funds, investors and lenders in the sector.
At Knight Frank we annually transact, value and consult on approximately £12 billion of healthcare property, and we’re the incumbent valuer to the majority of the top 40 operators in the private sector.
Our highly experienced team provides a discreet and efficient consultancy service, advising on the full spectrum of healthcare assets. This includes care homes and day centres, independent hospitals and surgeries, dentists, pharmacies, supported living and retirement villages.
Our network of offices across the UK enables our team to act for care providers, investors, developers and lenders to offer real estate services to the healthcare industry that we believe are second to none.
Julian Evans, head of healthcare at Knight Frank, said: “We’ve got an amazing team and this award represents our focus and growth in the sector.”
Knight Frank’s 22-strong healthcare team is a multidisciplinary outfit. Established in 2004, we offer valuation, advisory, agency, development and consultancy. We’re a one-stop shop, and because we’re a niche market, we do everything in one team.
Some of our greatest recent successes in a record year of £1 billion of transactions for our agency team includes advising CareTech on the UK’s largest-ever specialist sector sale and leaseback and ground rent at around £200 million. Our valuation team advised on almost £15 billion of assets and inspected around 3,000 care facilities. Knight Frank also won the Aedifica (one of Europe’s largest healthcare REITS) mandate to value its UK care home portfolio.
