Frobisher Retail Limited

Selection of properties



Founded in the early 1980s, Frobisher has evolved from a small property development and consultancy operation to a thriving enterprise highly focused on the management and restructuring of secondary commercial, industrial and retail property assets.

During the early 1990s the company acted primarily with partners Royal Bank of Scotland and Svenska Handelsbanken, providing exit routes from bad debt positions arising out of poor lending practices in the late1980s.

From the mid 1990s onward a strong relationship was established with UBS, the asset management arm of Union Bank of Switzerland for whom Frobisher acquires and restructures assets in all of the above sectors.

Development Management

Frobisher's extensive development expertise enables the company to act on behalf of third party clients in the management of the property development process. This service is invaluable to any organisation that does not have the in-house expertise, resource or inclination to take on the complexities of the development process.

The team is able to initiate and coordinate complex projects be it commercial, industrial or retail, taking on responsibility for planning, building, lettings and sales, and disposal. The service also extends to the supply and management of the professional team. The company is also actively engaged in joint ventures for pursuing extensive developments.

Its success is founded on the experience of the team and the ability to enhance and add value to secondary property assets.

Direct Development

Frobisher undertakes a wide variety of schemes including commercial proposals, mixed use and retail developments, residential and refurbishment schemes.

The team's strength lies in identifying and securing development opportunities in both prime and secondary locations and the ability to recognise the potential in an area of land. The company has an enviable reputation that has developed from the numerous refurbishment and industrial schemes undertaken across the south and work with large funds such as UBS.

Frobisher is constantly researching new opportunities and developing relations to extend its portfolio and involvement in high profile schemes.
