Methodologies & Operating Systems

We acquire and actively manage investments that offer 'income and opportunity'. The Rowan Philosophy is to always challenge and think creatively. Whilst dynamic in our approach, we balance this with pragmatism and a deep understanding of the market in which we operate.



1. Analysis

Our analysis is detailed and rigorous with deep research, complex and searching cashflows, checking viability, sensitivity and the impact of different types and levels of finance. Once in project the analysis, recording and reporting remains detailed and thoughtful.

2. Structuring

Rowan consider that the correct corporate and capital structure are of massive importance in the delivery of ultimate returns. We will often purchase corporate entities and set up management of these.

3. Delivery

The project plan requires overarching strategies and detailed process to ensure maximisation of opportunity. We apply bespoke operating systems that have been developed in the business over 20 years.

Rowan act decisively to add value. This approach can be applied to purchases or to existing properties and portfolios.

Careful analysis de-mystifying complexity leads to clear overarching strategies. Effective procedures deliver results.
