About us

Headed up by Jonathan Nuttall and Nick Okell, with an experience team of Directors, Peloton Real Estate understands that investing in commercial real estate needs to be about more than just the ‘bottom line’. Commercial investment must make a positive difference, not just in its impact on the environment, but also on the lives of those working in and relying on the assets we manage.

Peloton Real Estate uses its experience of sourcing, purchasing and running commercial assets, combined with an end-user and environmental focus, to provide investors with a more secure investment journey. We combine experience, expertise and tenacity to reduce the inherent risks of investing in UK commercial real estate.

Professional, responsible asset management

Peloton Real Estate exists to challenge how the property industry thinks, so that we can improve the experience of those around us.

The asset-management industry traditionally operates with a short-term mindset, purely focused on the bottom line. The standard approach is to ensure the interests of the AM partner and investor are aligned. At Peloton Real Estate, that is just a given; it is the base assumption we all start from.

We enhance our investors’ reputations, make their lives easier and help them exceed their investment criteria.


We look at the bigger picture and consider wider commercial, environmental and social factors when we make decisions. We believe that by focussing our attention on the end user, we will improve their experience of the assets we invest in. This in turn provides greater returns for our investors.

We are bold enough to stand out in our field and make sure that anyone who interacts with a Peloton asset has a positive experience, whether that is a social, environmental or personal improvement to their day-to-day life.

Our extensive market knowledge and this approach allow us to offer our investors confidence in an arena of uncertainty and risk.
