Leading diversified professional services and investment management company Colliers (NASDAQ and TSX: CIGI) is pleased to announce that it has advised CK Asset Holdings Ltd on the disposal of 5 Broadgate in London for £1.21 billion. 

The deal is the second largest in London, after the sale of the Walkie Talkie in 2017. The transaction was delivered through cross border collaboration from Colliers experts in London and Hong Kong.

Developed in 2015 with a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating, the freehold Grade-A building 5 Broadgate offers 732,876 sq. ft. of office space and is fully-let to UBS AG as its London headquarters.  The disposal enables CK Asset Holdings Ltd to unlock the underlying value of its investment, capture a sizeable gain and create value for its shareholders.
