Newcore was chosen by a panel of judges from a shortlist of nine other fund managers, which included Hines, Legal & General Investment Management Real Assets, Patron Capital and M7 Real Estate, for its performance and quality of its work in 2020/21, which included:

  • strong and sustainable continuing financial performance of its funds over the year which allowed Newcore to raise substantial new discretionary capital
  • demonstrating a clear and measurable ESG strategy, particularly in relation to social impact – for example through its partnership with LandAid and the wider industry to create the Probono Programme.
