Martin Payne, Fund Manager
Henderson Global Investors
With its capital value at risk due to a large number of short term leases, Edgar Property Solutions successfully increased the value of this multi let building in Glasgow City Centre for Henderson Global Investors.
The property at 95 Bothwell Street totals 135,000 sq ft and incorporates retail and office accommodation over 9 floors. With a high proportion of leases due to expire in less than two years, the Fund needed to protect their investment by securing longer term lets with existing and new tenants.
Edgar Property Solutions adopted a traffic light system to depict the income expiry of all the leases, based on red for danger, with leases expiring in less than 2 years; amber for caution, for leases expiring between 2 – 5 years and green showing rental income in excess of 5 years.

In just two years, I transformed the income profile of the building from red to green, by concluding four asset management initiatives. I created and added value by restructuring existing leases, including removing a number of break options. I also secured new tenants on long leases.
