Middle East consultancy firm ValuStrat expanded its presence in the United Kingdom by acquiring a stake in Capital Value Surveyors, a London-based firm specialised in real estate advisory services.

The deal sees three directors and a team of consultants affiliate with ValuStrat’s British network, in a move that comes three after years after the Dubai-headquartered group entered the UK market with the purchase of Capital Chartered Surveyors.

“The UK remains one of the most well-established real estate markets globally and one that is consistently of interest to international investors. We are pleased to develop our presence there further, to better serve all our clients, both in the UK and the Middle East,” said Declan King, a Managing Director at ValuStrat.
