Our Company


Bauer Group is a property services business with more than 17 years of successfully acquiring and operating multi-tenanted industrial property for investors at its core.

In recent years our expertise has grown and diversified into commercial development, Swiss commercial property and environmental technology offering our clients even greater investment opportunities and property advice

 

Our Company

Our core business is Property Asset Management. Since the early 1990's we have acquired, managed and developed a commercial property portfolio for Montgomery Property Group Ltd (MPG). From a small investment we developed MPG into a company with more than £60m of assets in the UK and Switzerland.

For more than 15 years we developed considerable expertise in acquiring and operating multi-tenanted industrial properties on behalf of MPG. Our business and customer focussed approach, embracing the property management, corporate management and financial management, enabled us to deliver consistently high returns - exceeding an average of 19% per annum over a 12 year period.

We offer a wide range of knowledge and experience in both property and finance and we can now deliver that experience and services to a wider group of clients.

We tailor an investment structure and property portfolio to meet your requirements and then provide a complete management solution to ensure your interests are taken care of, you are kept aware of what is going on and you are as involved as you choose to be in the management of your assets.

In 2008 we widened our investment focus to incorporate environmentally related investments and can offer investors access to a range of environmental investment opportunities.

 

Our Approach

We provide an entirely personal, tailored service to clients looking to invest in commercial property. We establish your aspirations in respect of risk and return and devise an investment structure and portfolio around this.

Our aim is to deliver you a simple, hassle free investment structure that delivers your target returns and minimises your investment risk.

Our experience, in house team and selected advisers mean that we can deal with all aspects of your investment portfolio from structuring the appropriate vehicle and liaising with tax advisors to acquiring and managing property and dealing with any legislative or compliance issues that are relevant to your structure.

We devise a reporting structure for you based around our core quarterly reporting and agree the level of involvement you want in the investment and operation of your fund.

 

Our History

We developed our expertise across a range of property types within our sector, from modern well let industrial space through highly intensive multi-tenanted industrial property to the development of modern business space.

Commercial Property has been our business since we began in the early 1990’s. We developed our expertise across a range of property types within our sector, from modern well let industrial space through highly intensive multitenanted industrial property to the development of modern business space.

Our growth since the early 1990’s has been intertwined with the development of Montgomery Property Group for its two main shareholders. The initial investments were made in 1994 and 1995 and were focused on single occupation industrial and distribution properties let on long leases to good quality tenants.

During the mid 1990’s this type of investment became more valuable and returns from investing were below our target levels and we shifted strategy to multi-tenanted industrial and office property with a wide range of tenant mix. Developing this strategy during the late 1990’s and upto 2004 we targeted small and medium sized businesses as our major tenants, refurbished and closely managed our properties to deliver higher income returns and capital value growth.

From early 2005 UK commercial property investment values began to grow to an unsustainable level and we began a series of disposals. We then shifted our investment strategy towards the development of our own new stock in the UK and to investment in existing commercial property in Switzerland. Both of these have stood Montgomery in good stead through the UK economic downturn.

Bauer, being committed to supporting Montgomery, replicated its UK services in Switzerland and can now offer property management services to clients who wish to invest in this market.
