The Candy brothers, two of the UK’s wealthiest entrepreneurs, are planning to float a London residential property fund in order to take advantage of sharp falls in asset values.

 

The vehicle will target high-end residential properties in Central London, the Candys’ speciality. It is believed the fund aims to raise £50m of equity and, with 50pc of gearing, will have £100m of firepower.

The brothers are expected to invest in the fund themselves.
