In the Making.™

Millemont comprises a seasoned collective of leading investment and legal experts, brought together by a shared endeavour to identify, restructure and reposition real estate assets for a better future.

About Us

Our platform delivers two unique operations, Millemont Capital Partners and Millemont Advisors, to create real sustainable advantage for our investors and clients alike. Our mission is to build the most effective trusted relationships in the market, delivered by the leading talent and measured by the greatest impact. We’re working hard to really change the game, putting environmental and social impact at the heart of everything we do; and by bringing an uncompromising approach to sustainability with seamless ESG integration throughout our real estate investment management process.


Our capital partners platform invests in real estate opportunities with an initial focus on acquiring sustainable hospitality assets in core UK cities. It is designed to accumulate capital commitments from a selection of nimble, like-minded, sophisticated investors. Our focus is to deploy capital into selective value-add real estate strategies running from £10-50m. At the heart of our strategy is the delivery of net zero carbon real estate portfolios, implementation of smart technology and data analytics to achieve operational efficiency.


Our advisory platform focuses on asset-backed transactions in excess of £100m, with a focus on complex origination and capital advisory mandates for leading real estate private equity funds, sovereign wealth funds, family offices and entrepreneurs. We are well versed in originating transactions, as well as introducing the capital stack and operational partners required to execute those transactions between £100m-1bn. We combine our market-leading capital advisory capabilities with best-in-class transaction management experience and deep industry knowledge, which we leverage to unlock and execute opportunities for clients with superior, risk-adjusted returns.
