What we do

FirethornTrust was launched in 2018 to invest in UK real estate assets with a specific focus on value-add investment and development opportunities.

Our focus is to add value and create maximum potential returns through active asset management, development, refurbishments, planning enhancements, regeneration and restructuring.

We combine deep market knowledge with meticulous business plan execution.

Robust underwriting coupled with real estate fundamentals is at the core of every opportunity we analyse. This allows us to immediately drive value creation across the portfolio.




To be both proactive and reactive to the dynamic nature of the UK real estate market.

We have no fixed investment periods, no fixed focus to specific sectors and no strict return parameters. This releases the constraints experienced by other real estate investors, allowing us to maximise return potential across the whole risk/return spectrum.

We seek to utilise the professional real estate investment and development expertise the FirethornTrust team possesses to invest in the right opportunities that add value to our portfolio.




FirethornTrust is an independently owned real estate investment and development business. FirethornTrust invests in UK real estate, across all sectors, on behalf of two US family offices - the Van Tuyl and Stephens families. The firm was set up in 2018 by Founding Partners Peter Mather and Chris Webb.
