Allsop Residential Investment Management Limited (ARIM) is being integrated into the wider Allsop business. This is part of our plan to drive new innovation and technology, collaborate more closely across our specialist teams, and enhance our overall service proposition, enabling all our customers to drive more value from their investment.

From 12 October 2015 ARIM will become Allsop Letting and Management Limited – remaining a wholly owned subsidiary of Allsop LLP. We are confident that by bringing ARIM under the same umbrella brand we can pool insight from across Allsop, ensuring that every decision is made using the most up-to-date data, the sharpest analysis and the most experienced judgement.

Allsop’s expertise around valuation, planning and financing, together with expanding commercial investment and development teams, has propelled its business to become one of the UK’s most successful independent property services companies. Bringing ARIM and Allsop under one roof is about helping our customers to add even more value.

Our journey

ARIM was established in 1999 as a subsidiary of Allsop with the simple aim of delivering highly professional residential management. Today, 16 years later, ARIM is the UK’s largest independently-owned investment portfolio manager.

Over the last 12 months we have worked hard to strengthen each aspect of our service proposition; to deliver and ultimately exceed our customers’ expectations and to engage positively at every level. To accomplish this, we have invested in new staff training programmes, client focus groups and supplier improvement initiatives. We have also continued to focus on supporting the industry’s improvement on various policy and regulatory initiatives where Allsop insight and expertise helps shape a better business environment for our customers.

Operating under the established Allsop brand will allow us to further expand our expertise and knowledge, providing better visibility to all existing and future customers.

Continued innovation

Our use of technology and market intelligence to drive value for the assets we manage is what sets us apart from our competitors. Bringing ARIM and Allsop together will allow us to further embrace new technologies in an ever-changing market place. It is right that our customers should demand higher levels of service and more efficient operating processes, available at any hour of the day. We have been heavily investing in this area and are working tirelessly to deliver some exciting new products over the coming months.

Industry-leading insight

While Allsop has always been aligned with residential investment, there is an ever-increasing synergy that comes with ARIM’s integration and I am excited about the future prospects of a single brand identity. Together our aligned services are perfectly placed to provide the latest market knowledge. Due to the scale of our business – across residential investment, commercial property and auctions – Allsop has access to vast amounts of proprietary data. Combining this with cutting edge technology and extensive industry experience means we are able to provide better, more tailored advice than our competitors.

Supporting both PRS and Build to Rent

Allsop has a real understanding of large-scale, purpose-built residential assets that dates back decades. For more than 100 years the Allsop business has helped clients maximise returns, manage risk and support long-term investment. This has been synonymous with the continued growth of the Private Rented Sector (PRS) and crucially, this expertise can support the emerging Build to Rent market as well. We are better informed and better able to make data-driven judgements around residential investment, which enables us to effectively de-risk you and deliver residential investment at scale.

Our commitment to people

Allsop has the people, skills, experience and drive to maximise value at every stage of our customers’ journey through the property market. Above all though, our biggest asset is our people and the distinctive Allsop style: open, friendly and honest. Our customers respond positively to having the weight of expertise from a large business with the personal and approachable candour of a partner-led consultancy. This is why so many have stayed with us over the long term.
