Since Ability was formed in 1996, we have built up a significant presence within the UK and European property markets, across Residential,
Commercial and Hotel sectors. Over the last 20 years, we have invested carefully, ensuring that we have not over-leveraged investments. This has
allowed us to build up equity in the business. Being in this position allows us to be more competitive in the market and offers, as well as
providing vendors certainty and reliability when dealing with us, a reputation which is valuable.
From our platform in Residential properties, Ability has acquired, developed and managed over 7,000 properties in the UK. We were well placed
to develop a commercial portfolio of Offices, Retail spaces and Hotels. In 2006, we established a €150 million investment program for Shopping
Centres in Europe. This was followed up with an acquisition spree of UK and European Hotels, of which we now own seven. These include the 2,100 bedroom Club Med in Kamarina Sicily, Premier Inn Glasgow, Doubletree by Hilton Cambridge, Doubletree by Hilton Dunblane Hydro, the landmark Liverpool Hilton located within the Liverpool One complex which is undoubtedly Liverpool’s best hotel.
In November 2012, Ability opened the Hampton by Hilton Luton Airport making The Ability Group, the only owner across Hilton Worldwide to own a
Hampton, Doubletree and a core brand Hilton hotel. Further hotel development opportunities are in the Ability pipeline across the UK,
France, Italy and Spain.
Over the years, The Ability Group has also become involved in the acquisition, management and charter of luxury Aircrafts and Yachts. The
next addition to Ability’s fleet will be a Challenger 300. Which, with its transatlantic range, advanced avionics and sumptuousinterior, represents
the pinnacle of excellence in business Aviation. This will sit alongside another member of the Ability family, the Mangusta 130, a 40 metre Sports
Yacht, acquired in 2007 and available to charter across the Mediterranean.
Our goal is to continue to grow the business and to achieve synergy. In this regard, we are seeking to benefit from integrating our Property,
Shipping and Air divisions. The next few years will prove to be some of the most exciting in our history. We look forward to increasing our scale
and efficiency, with our dedicated in-house team and external professional advisors
