The British Land Co. Plc Real Estate Investment Trusts | London, Gbr

British Land owns and manages a portfolio of commercial property worth £16.3 billion, of which our share is £10.4 billion Our portfolio is focused primarily on high quality retail locations and central London offices. We believe these well-located properties are the ones best placed to benefit from customer demand and rental growth. We also have expertise in residential and leisure property. We own properties directly, as well as through investment funds and joint ventures. We invest in and develop high-quality buildings in prime locations and then manage them to the very highest standards – focused on customers' needs at every stage. It's an approach that's proved successful: 97.3% of the portfolio is let and our occupiers sign long leases with us. This gives us the security of a strong and sustainable rental income; only a very small portion of rent is subject to break or expiry before 2015. Property is a cyclical business. Our understanding of the market cycles guides us as we use our capital to deliver long-term property returns
