Wealth Management firm, JM Finn has exchanged an agreement for a new London office at 25 Copthall Avenue, EC2, a short walk from its existing headquarters in Coleman Street.
JM Finn will take the whole of the 5th floor and part of the 6th floor, the latter being for the exclusive use for client meetings, which also incorporates a wraparound roof terrace that can be used for client events.
This sees the firm move from five floors at its current offices, onto two floors in office space that accommodates its ambitious growth plans whilst offering a more efficient layout and flexible approach to working.
Hugo Bedford, CEO of JM Finn, commented: “I am delighted to announce that we have agreed to move our head office to 25 Copthall Avenue. We have been in our current home for 13 years, during which time the firm has changed considerably, not least due to the change of working patterns brought on by Covid-19. 25 Copthall Avenue allows for increased flexibility of space with more contemporary amenities, all within a short walk of our current office.”
Richard Proctor, Head of London Tenant Representation at Knight Frank, said: “Having originally moved JM Finn from Salisbury House on London Wall to 4 Coleman Street, I’m thrilled that Knight Frank was able to identify this off-market opportunity for JM Finn’s new London office. 25 Copthall Avenue delivers more efficient and flexible office accommodation to suit JM Finn’s future occupational needs, whilst also maintaining ease of access for clients and staff via its core City of London location. The building offers excellent amenities, including excellent end of trip facilities, a café and extensive terrace space.”
The company will start to move all 250 staff based in London into their new home in Q4 2021, having taken possession to fit out the accommodation in May 2021.
Having originally acquired the space for Merian, this off market deal was brokered by Knight Frank working with Simon Garfield Property, who advises Jupiter Asset Management, the new owners of Merian.
Knight Frank’s Project Management and Cost Consultancy team have been appointed by JM Finn to assist in delivering the fit out of their new office space at 25 Copthall Avenue.
