The simplest way to explain our structure is to see it as having three levels: the Trustees of the Grosvenor Estate (the shareholders); the Group (the Holding Company); and the businesses within the Group (our operating companies and our indirect investment business). Each devolves specified responsibilities to the next level down.
Grosvenor Group’s Shareholders are the Trustees of the Grosvenor Estate. They hold the shares in the business for the benefit of current and future members of the Grosvenor family.
Grosvenor Group has a Board of eight members. The Group Executive Committee is a sub-committee of the Grosvenor Group Limited Board and the Holding Company.
The businesses within the Group
Grosvenor Group has two main areas of business:
Grosvenor Britain & Ireland, Grosvenor Americas, Grosvenor Asia Pacific and Grosvenor Europe operate in a devolved structure model, each being responsible for its own property strategy founded on local experience and assessment of market opportunities.
Our Indirect Investment business is tasked with further diversifying Grosvenor’s property-related interests beyond the expertise and strategies of our four regional Operating Companies.
Part of the Grosvenor Estate
The other constituent parts of the Grosvenor Estate are:
Wheatsheaf Group Limited, which operates and invests in companies in the food and agri‑business sectors that contribute long-term solutions to meet the food production demands of a changing global population; and
the Family Investment Office, which manages the Grosvenor family’s other interests including securities investments, rural estates in the UK and Spain, The Westminster Foundation, a fine art collection and a family archive.
