Harnessing technology to unlock residential investment at scale

For professional investors only. Not to be relied upon by retail investors.

What we do

Bricklane’s platform is engineered to generate large scale portfolios of outperforming residential property for institutions.

Using Compass, our proprietary technology, we have industrialised the investment process from end-to-end, executing granular transactions that fly below the radar of other professional investors to create a sustainable edge for our partners. We are currently deploying our first major institutional mandate of £600m, focussed on carefully selected areas of London, the South East, and Bristol.

Powered by technology

Compass is at the core of our business, providing us with unique, proprietary market insight and access.

It enables our in-house team to identify attractive sub-markets on an unprecedentedly granular basis, and to acquire outperforming rental properties in those areas at previously unachievable volumes. Utilising the latest data science, our algorithms grow smarter with every transaction, and our teams have all institutional knowledge gathered to date at their fingertips. We are continuing to invest heavily in our technology, in order to power a sustainable competitive advantage for our partners.

Driven by experts

Our dedicated team of experts handle every stage of the property acquisition and management process.

This ensures that access to thousands of granular transactions is only an advantage for our partners, and not an overhead. We believe that trust is key to institutional investment management, and we have hired world-class talent from organisations such as Ares, Oliver Wyman, Credit Suisse, PwC, and Allen & Overy who ensure our partners’ interests are protected at all times.

A better deal for tenants

We believe that tenants deserve responsive, professional service from engaged investors.

For too long, UK market norms have involved unstable contracts, unresponsive managers and poorly furnished property. We are committed to providing a superior proposition for our tenants, ensuring they can feel at home in their Bricklane properties.
