Singapore-based agency One Global Property Services has teamed up with PCL advisory firm Mayfair Private Office to launch a new private office division.
The boutique venture, One Mayfair, is billed as a “bespoke private wealth service” for HNW and UHNW individuals across Asia, “streamlining the process” of investing in the UK from overseas.
Services on offer will include the sourcing and acquiring of assets, along with disposals, managed sales and lettings, project management and rental searches.
Ex-CBRE surveyor Harry Spooner will be heading things up from a base in Singapore, with ex-Colliers director Gareth Hart in Hong Kong. Another regional office has also been set up in Kuala Lumpur.
The co-founders of London-based Mayfair Private Office, Cameron Smith and Sebastian Oliver, will be the division’s “eyes and ears” on the ground in the UK.
The team’s recent track record includes some large-scale acquisitions in PCL, including 43 units on the South Bank for c.£130m, six units at the Hexagon in Covent Garden for c.£7.5m, and a super-prime five-bed in Kensington for c.£25m.
James Puddle, Managing Director & Founder, One Global Property Services: “We are incredibly excited about the new partnership between One Global and Mayfair Private Office. One Mayfair was born from a collective desire to provide a best in class service with a truly global reach, that will ultimately ensure that all of our clients and investors are able to gain access to the best opportunities in the marketplace, whilst ensuring that they are getting the best advice and can have absolute confidence that they make the right investment decisions.
“The core team involved with this venture have had the benefit of working together for a number of years in the industry under various guises, benefiting from a huge amount of collective experience. We all share the same mutual passion for creating something special, which truly adds value, placing the needs of the client first. One Mayfair has bought us all back together creating a very personable dream team of property experts. Watch this space!”
Cameron Smith, Director, One Mayfair and Mayfair Private Office London: “This partnership strengthens our drive to create a market leading Private Office, which is boutique in its operation and values, but with a truly global reach. Both business have had great success independently and share joint ambitions of growing together to give the international community an alternative if it is a personal and bespoke service they desire. It’s great to be working with James and his team again!”
