His sector focus was in financial services and real estate, advising asset management firms and some of the largest UK house-builders. He advised on numerous contested acquisitions, capital raisings and flotations. His advice was principally to senior and board level directors.

He negotiated and transacted on large-scale mixed use residential and commercial developments for several developers and private equity firms, which resulted in quick sales and a significant return on investment.
His core investment theme is real estate with a strong value proposition in undervalued locations and sectors with the provision of attractive rental yields and capital gain. Ewan’s expertise in property development, management and distressed purchase and disposal is applied to focus in prime investment opportunities that typically benefit from not being on the mainstream investor radar due to the need for specialist market knowledge and experience.
