The demanding requirements of our various clients and counter parties have been met and exceeded by the team who are well used to dealing in a highly regulated environment in terms of governance, reporting, delegated approvals as well as the formulation of commercial and management propositions for third party determination.

In-house Expertise

Our core asset and development management capability is supplemented by experts in key areas such as Finance, Financial Modelling, Property & Facility Management and Marketing.

Financial Management

Financial Management is a key component of Burlington’s integrated management approach and by having this function in-house a more efficient overall asset management service can be provided. It also eliminates the need to outsource the financial aspects of asset management.

Marketing

The importance of a highly developed marketing function informs the approach we take in Burlington recognising that the protection and enhancement of the value of our assets is fundamentally driven by the underlying market in which we operate.

A core principal of the Burlington management style is that we focus our attention on our existing and potential tenants and we have an ongoing program of meeting with our tenants on a regular basis

This ensures that we have a clear early warning of any problems or issues and also allows us to anticipate changing requirements.
