Banco Safra S.A. Key Developments

GIC And British Land Reportedly Considering Sale Of UBS HQ

GIC Pte. Ltd. and The British Land Company PLC are considering a circa £1.1 billion sale of UBS’s UK headquarters at 5 Broadgate, EC2. The duo have yet to take a firm decision to dispose of the 710,000 sq ft City trophy but have begun taking valuation advice from JLL and CBRE. It is understood that UBS is also likely to be involved in an advisory capacity in any prospective sales process and the opportunity would be offered to only a select group of potential buyers. A wall of money, in particular from Hong Kong, is looking to buy prestigious buildings in the capital and as a result record pricing has prompted GIC and British Land to consider their options, with Banco Safra S.A. also contemplating a £1 billion sale of the Gherkin at 30 St Mary Axe, EC3.
