Their deep understanding of the needs of Gulf-based investors made a real difference for us, and we are delighted to have met our clients’ expectations for this deal. We have been an active investor in UK property for a number of years and are looking to increase our holdings of high-quality income generating assets.

Henry Thompson, CEO of Gatehouse, said: This transaction is the latest in a series of financings which we have completed for Gulf-based firms. It demonstrates significant demand for our financing solutions. Because we are providing financing on a Shariah compliant basis, there is a natural fit with Gulf-based partners.
