Crosstree Real Estate Partners is a private real estate investment firm with a focus on the UK market. Founded in 2011 and based in London, Crosstree seeks properties in dynamic mixed-use areas that require significant capital investment and offer compelling long-term prospects through active repositioning and quality design.
Crosstree invests in all real estate asset classes and across the capital structure. Its portfolio includes a variety of projects across London including office properties, retail and leisure space, hotels and residential development. Crosstree concentrates on a few exceptional schemes at any one time, and seeks to work with best-in-class partners, professionals and designers.
Following substantial backing from the Bertarelli family initially, in 2019 the capital base was expanded to include a select group of institutional and family office investors.
Crosstree was founded by Sean Arnold and Nick Lyle in partnership with Ernesto Bertarelli’s investment group, B-FLEXION (formerly Waypoint Capital), through which he manages the significant funds associated with his family. Both Sean and Nick developed their careers at major global real estate private equity firms, with a successful track record of creative deal making across a diverse set of sectors and structures, having been involved in some of the industry’s most notable transactions.
