HFF understands the international commercial real estate landscape and its challenges. To better serve the needs of our global clients, we have brought our multi-platform capital markets approach to the UK and European markets. HFF London officially opened its doors in January 2017, two months after HFF announced its plans in November 2016 to expand our physical presence into Europe.

HFF London offers our United Kingdom clients a full spectrum of commercial real estate capital markets transaction services, including investment banking/corporate finance, investment sales transactions and debt and equity placement. HFF’s veteran London team has extensive knowledge of all property sectors and brings more than 80 years of collective experience to the U.K. real estate business. The day-to-day management of our London office is led by senior managing director Michael Kavanau, formerly co-head of HFF’s Chicago office, who relocated to London and leads the office’s equity and debt placement business. 

London is currently the foremost global financial capital of the world, according to the Global Financial Centers Index, beating out New York, Singapore, Hong Kong, Tokyo and more.  A leader in the global marketplace, London stands out as a superior location for international corporations and businesses for its ability to attract an educated, international workforce, and the city’s transportation and rapidly-improving infrastructure supports a growing population.  Additionally, London has prime amenities, cultural offerings, educational opportunities and a favorable regulatory environment.

HFF is excited to open our 24th office, and we are confident in our ability to enter this rapidly-changing market to successfully grow our European business through our client-focused approach.
