Welcome to The Peel Group – one of the leading infrastructure, transport and real estate investors in the UK, with collective investments owned and under management of more than £5 billion.

Established by our Chairman, John Whittaker, over 40 years ago, The Peel Group has grown through an ethos of recycling capital and delivering long-term investment, primarily in the North  of England.  We are strong advocates of the Northern Powerhouse and in 2015 became a founder member of the Cabinet Office Northern Powerhouse business partnership programme.

The Group is family-owned and is an investor in tangible assets comprising land, air or water. Our principal investments encompass the transport, retail and leisure, property, land, energy and media sectors.

Our aim is clear: reinvest to regenerate by recycling capital over the long-term. By continually reinvesting in new projects and making strategic acquisitions, our approach is to grow the value of our assets over many decades.

We invest for tomorrow.
