Schroder Real Estate Hotels

Schroder Real Estate Hotels partners with a large set of recurring investors enabling us to undertake a range of operations (management contract, lease, management lease, directly-operated hotels) with different risk/reward profiles.  We structure club deals and joint ventures with co-investors from family offices, private equity funds and a range of institutional investors.  How we partner with different investor types is dependent on the risk/reward profile required.

Lower risk investments are usually undertaken with family offices or institutional investors

Higher risk / return acquisitions or turnaround investments are more likely to be undertaken with private equity firms

Mature and low volatility operations are usually paired with institutional investors

Depending on the profile of each opportunity and the risk / reward expectations of co-investors, we will use different levels of debt leverage. Specialist lenders, in the countries where the property or portfolio is located, are typically used for this.

For those assets operated under third party management contracts with international hotel groups*, Schroder Real Estate Hotels is responsible for the property and asset management. This includes the overseeing of investments, hotel operational performance and maximising cash flow and return on investment.

Schroder Real Estate Hotels (previously as Algonquin) has also been an operator of its own hotels (and those hotels owned through joint ventures) for 20 years. This hands-on expertise and long-standing experience of day to day hotel management provides investors with a partner whose interest is perfectly aligned with theirs, is well-positioned to create value and has the ability to undertake day to day operations of any independent or franchised hotel.

*We operate hotels with Accor, Rezidor, Marriot, IHG and Starwood groups
