Strutt & Parker and Catella have signed an international alliance agreement. The exclusive alliance, a first for both parties, will enable them to provide pan European transactional and consultancy advice in the office, retail and industrial markets.
The alliance, which takes immediate effect, will see Catella and Strutt & Parker come together to utilise their combined strength in Europe’s main business centres and provide their commercial clients with access to new international markets.

In turn, Catella’s pan European organisation will help enhance Strutt & Parker’s international presence and allow them to identify and explore new property solutions across Europe for their clients.
Anders Palmgren, Head of Corporate Finance at Catella said: “We are thrilled to announce this alliance with Strutt & Parker – our cooperation will enable Catella to better deliver for our clients. It will provide us with wider access to banks and financial institutions in London, as well as to UK based investors and those investors using London as a stepping stone for their European activities.”
Andy Martin, senior partner at Strutt & Parker said: “The alliance with Catella continues our strategy for expansion through getting closer to the source of growing international investor interest in the London market. By working with Catella, who have an in depth understanding of the European investor profile, we will be able to offer a range of opportunities and solutions to investors keen to access the UK market.”
