At a time of huge economic uncertainty, Julian identified a way to guarantee forced sellers certainty on both the timing and pricing of sale in advance of going to market, whilst not taking away their ability to maximise their revenues through a timely and structured sale process. With the backing of the Ellis Campbell Group, C2 Capital’s first co-mingled underwriting fund was launched in February 2010, and it was followed up with a second underwriting fund in September 2012.
At the same time the Company started to acquire and manage assets directly on behalf of its private clients, designing investment strategies across the risk spectrum for pension funds and charitable foundations through to opportunistic capital growth and development plays. The Company also inherited the management of existing portfolios, working with their Clients to restructure them and reinvest the proceeds into assets with longer term growth prospects.
As a result of the above activity it became clear in 2015 that C2 Capital required independent ownership, and so in August of that year Julian Carey acquired the Ellis Campbell Group’s stake in the Company. C2 Capital continue to manage all of the Ellis Campbell Group’s commercial assets and they remain a hugely important Client and contributory part of the Company’s history.
Underwriting provides sellers of property with 100% certainty on the timing and minimum pricing of disposals in advance to going to market. C2 Capital launched the UK’s first dedicated underwriting funds specialising in this innovative sales structure.
in partnership with Morgan Stanley Real Estate Investing, a new property company focusing on acquiring good quality multi-let industrial investments with a targeted and intensive asset management philosophy.
Working for C2 in a regulatory capacity since the launch of their first fund in 2010 has been a very positive and enjoyable experience for us at Marick Capital. We have always been impressed by the professionalism of Julian Carey and his colleagues, and we know that investors have been attracted to the company by their innovative investment strategies and their application of value enhancing real estate management initiatives.
