Berkeley Group

The Berkeley Group build homes and neighbourhoods. We focus on creating beautiful, successful places in London and the South of England. We work together with other people to tackle the shortage of good quality homes, and make a lasting contribution to the landscape and to the communities we help create.

Berkeley's strategy has been developed for a cyclical market. Residential development is not about individual reporting periods. It is about creating value over the long-term and this requires financial discipline and balance sheet strength. Berkeley acquires land differently to others. The primary focus is on adding value through its development expertise, for which we have an excellent record.

Above all else, enhancing property value is about having time. This is afforded to Berkeley by its strategy of taking low financial risk through a combination of matching production to demand, selling forward and only gearing when there is sufficient visibility of future cash flow.
