Blue Sky Thinking for Property Development, Investment & Management
Ciel Properties (Asset Management) LLP (“Ciel”) is a traditional property company drawing on the long experience of its founders, Phil Cox and Steve Jones, to invest in commercial & residential property in the UK.
Our journey began in 2000 when Ciel was formed in order to acquire a portfolio of properties from Peninsular & Oriental Steam Navigation Company (where Phil & Steve were employed as property managers) through a joint venture with The Royal Bank of Scotland.
RBS’s exit from commercial property lending led to a buy-out from RBS in September 2014 and Ciel are now financed by Jefferies LoanCore (Europe) Limited (“JLC”) which is a collaboration between a US Bank and the Singapore Sovereign Wealth Fund.
Our portfolio is dynamic, with properties bought and sold where it makes sense, but our over-riding objective is to deliver consistent returns to our investors utilising our skill-sets of active, hands-on asset management and the ability to lead professional teams on planning, design, construction, marketing & disposal – as illustrated in our Past & Current Projects on the next pages of this website.
