Launched in 2008, the Darwin Leisure Property Fund (the Fund) owns and operates a portfolio of fifteen holiday parks in the UK and generates returns that are uncorrelated with any asset class, including real estate. Revenues are generated from the park operations, making it a very different proposition to traditional real estate investments.
The Darwin Leisure Property Fund provides both institutional and private investors with exposure to the lucrative UK holiday park industry.
The Fund purchases and operates a portfolio of UK Holiday Parks. It is an alternative asset class which offers:
- Predictable, stable, long-term returns
- Capital preservation and appreciation
- Diversification from traditional real estate portfolios and mainstream asset classes.
