Who are we

Scoop is the Operating Partner to a number of real estate Funds and a leading real estate asset and development manager. Established in 2009, our core focus is the rejuvenation and repositioning of major retail assets. 

“The functions and appearance of shopping centres are changing. Now is the time to identify assets with underlying strengths and latent potential, which are capable of income stabilisation, repositioning, or repurposing, including redevelopment, and which are currently mispriced by the market.”

Stuart Farnell
Principal at Scoop

What we do

Independent and privately owned, we have a particular focus on UK retail and mixed-use assets. We partner with real estate investors, including institutional property fund managers, private equity funds, debt providers and local authorities, and work as a team to combine our extensive knowledge of the retail sector with investment, development and financing skills.

We are unique in our ability to offer these collective services, under one roof, in order to add value and maximise the returns to our investors.

Scoop’s senior management team includes Graham Cole, Stuart Farnell and Mark Hewett, who are supported by an in-house property team comprising asset and development managers, financial modellers and analysts, and a food store and residential development specialist.
