QSix celebrates 15-year anniversary
QSix, the specialist real estate asset manager, is delighted to celebrate 15 years since it was founded in 2006.
Since founding, QSix’s innate curiosity, creativity and rigorous research-driven approach has underpinned the “QSix Edge”, allowing it to consistently grow and create value for its stakeholders.
QSix, then PMM Group, started with a focus on building a portfolio of German residential assets. Today, QSix has over £1 billion AuM across a number of equity and debt real estate investment strategies with more than 50 individuals based in the UK, Germany and The Netherlands.
Phoenix Spree Deutschland, QSix’s German Residential strategy, was listed on the London Stock Exchange in 2015 and has delivered a total return of 175% since listing in 2015, with a portfolio valued at €768.3 million.
Its Real Estate Finance strategy, specialising in commercial real estate (CRE) debt, has consistently delivered on its target IRR of 6% since launching in 20171 and is currently seeking capital for a £100m+ investment opportunity, targeting 6%+ net IRR on directly originated CRE debt focused on mid-market loans between £5m and £25m.2
Through its specialist loan servicing business, HMS, QSix has advised on and acquired over 15,000 shared equity mortgages which it services. These had an initial face value of over £500 million and have delivered attractive, risk-adjusted annual returns.
QSix is currently expanding its residential focus to the UK with new affordable rent, PRS and home ownership strategies.
Since its rebrand in September 2020, QSix’s growth has been supported by a series of key senior hires.
Eduard Mantz joined to open QSix’s Dutch office and lead the CRE debt strategy in The Netherlands, while Nick McAlpine-Lee joined as Head of Shared Ownership at QSix. Miriam Macor joined as Head of Private Capital to boost the firm’s fundraising capabilities across private markets and Lynn Gilbert joined as senior adviser lending her expertise to the company’s strategy.
Mike Hilton, CEO of QSix, commented:
“I am very proud of what we have achieved in the last 15 years and confident that we have the best team in place to deliver our ambitious future growth plan. Celebrating our 15 years today, I’d like to thank everyone at the business for their individual contribution to both our track record and inclusive, innovative culture.
As crystallised in our rebrand last year, we use a flexible, inquisitive, and data-led approach to uncover underappreciated investment opportunities and offer positive, socially responsible returns for investors. It is this unique culture, upheld by everyone at QSix, which has underpinned our success and will help drive us to our next stage of growth.
