Ardmuir Portfolio

Following a strategic review, SFG was appointed asset manager by Trident Trustees Limited for the 850-bed portfolio of six PBSA assets in Aberdeen and Dundee.

SFG led the transition of the portfolio from a family-owned and operated structure with ~60% occupancy to one running efficiently and at 100% occupancy. This included several strategic and operational initiatives including the evaluation and appointment of UK leading student accommodation specialist, Mezzino, to professionalise the operations and overhaul the key marketing and reporting services.

Our services included director and corporate services, strategic governance, asset, property and financial management, reporting and budgeting and oversight of the operator, Mezzino. 

The portfolio was typically three-bedroom flats with a shared bathroom, large communal kitchen and living space, offering an independent living experience - much more like large scale HMO accommodation than traditional student halls.  

Following the turnaround, SFG led the sale of the portfolio to a private investment company in August 2023. This included all due diligence relation services, negotiation of the bid and counter-bid, sale and purchase documentation and managing the transaction to successful close
