Our Purpose

Real estate by its nature is long-term. It plays an important role in society, whether it be somewhere to live, work, play or shop. Its impact on people’s lives is significant: real estate is where community is built. We recognise the value it can contribute to society and the broader role Mitheridge can play in helping to make its impact even greater. 

Our business is built on this premise, and our team is driven by creating maximum value for all stakeholders.

Our Foundation

The Mitheridge Foundation is being set up to support charities, projects and people particularly in the areas of housing, homelessness, training and education.

Our People

Mitheridge has an experienced executive and non-executive team which has collectively overseen some of the largest private equity real estate transactions in the UK over the past 40 years, successfully investing across all economic cycles.

Our Investment Committee is supported by a group of industry advisers who provide further specialist insight and knowledge to complement our team.
