London Central Portfolio

Description

LCP was established in 1989 by founder and entrepreneur, Naomi Heaton. While forging a highly successful career in advertising at Saatchi & Saatchi, she caught the ‘property bug’ buying and renovating property in prime central London (PCL). Heaton recognised the need for an end-to-end service offering investors independent expert advice on property investment decisions. This gave rise to LCP, probably the first residential agency in the UK acting in the interests of the buyer, in a market then dominated by estate agents.

As well as being a great place to live, work and study, PCL is a safe haven asset class. While a spate of new taxes, uncertainty in the build up to Brexit and an unprecedented global pandemic have all suppressed the market, LCP’s view remains that scarcity of stock, coupled with global demand and increased geopolitical volatility, will support long-term price growth, withstanding cyclical downturns.

LCP helps investors make the most of this unique market, providing superior access to buying opportunities as well as hands-on project management and creative design solutions, to suit all tastes and budgets. Using sophisticated financial modelling, LCP will identify the best properties and secure them at the most competitive price, followed up with an efficient letting & management service for landlords so they can enjoy a seamless, hands-off investment. With strong international links, particularly in Asia and the Gulf, LCP has over $1.5/£1 billion of clients’ assets under management.

With a history of innovation, LCP partnered up with a world-renowned Dutch-based pension fund in 2019 to acquire Harrington Hall Hotel in South Kensington, and more recently the Wellington Block in Covent Garden. These will be the cornerstone of a flexible stay, lifestyle hotel brand offering apartment style living in the centre of London. With Heaton spearheading this new initiative, Andrew Weir has been appointed the new CEO of LCP, with over 30 years of sales and lettings experience in PCL as head of Foxtons. LCP is now planning a programme of business expansion, building on its diverse expertise in the marketplace, while remaining true to its core values of client service.
