In 2017, the firm successfully partnered with Deutsche Finance Group, a major global investment fund manager, to acquire Olympia London Exhibition Centre in prime West London off the market for $475 million from a FTSE 250 UK listed company.

A company comprising nearly 200 full and part-time employees and 1,100,000 square feet spread across 14.0 freehold acres in West London, Olympia is the only major exhibition centre in Prime Central London and has a tremendous 130-year history as one of the world’s leading exhibition, entertainment and cultural centres.

During the last 20 years, Olympia had been largely a non-core corporate holding within a larger corporate asset base. It was periodically traded to multiple different ownerships, each without a significant focused investment strategy.

Yoo Capital Management’s strategy is to focus with the management to drive operating performing while investing heavily into the under utilised areas of the 14.0 acre estate to build new open squares, pedestrianised streets, as well as 2 major hotels, over 40 restaurants, 5 music and live entertainment venues, community performing arts spaces, creative offices and studio spaces to transform Olympia into London’s new creative arts, entertainment and exhibition district.

Yoo Capital Management acts as UK Co-Investment Partner and Asset Manager and serves on the Board of the Company.
