Pension and investment advisory firm Isio moves to 110 George Street in Edinburgh
Knight Property Group has secured pension and investment advisory firm Isio as its new tenant for the ground floor office suites at 110 George Street, a classic Grade B listed Georgian townhouse, set in the heart of Edinburgh’s prime city centre.
This suite became available following Knight Property Group’s own internal move to the first floor within the building which is already home to Smart Energy, Cairngorm Capital Partners and The Vardy Foundation.
Isio is relocating from an existing base in St Andrew Square and has agreed a five-year lease for the 1,337 sq ft ground floor suite, with the team of up to 20 staff taking occupation at the end of February. The property also benefits from car parking at the rear.
Isio was formed following the sale of KPMG UK’s pension practice to a private equity firm in March 2020. The business has an established network of offices and advisers around the UK, including Glasgow and Edinburgh. Known and respected for its agility, the Isio team has over 1,000 client relationships, ranging from small to blue chip, as well as public to private.
Calum Brunton Smith, director at Isio, said: “This is an exciting time for Isio, as we go from strength to strength, growing our business, our team and our position in the market. We’re delivering strongly for our clients, winning in the market and with our most recent acquisition, been able to enhance and extend our service offering.
“The move to 110 George Street gives us a prestigious office base, set in the perfect city centre location, which is highly accessible for both our staff and clients. Isio is fully committed to the Scottish market and we are excited to open the doors of our newest office.”
Howard Crawshaw, managing director of Knight Property Group added: “With the economy starting to reignite and open up again, it was pleasing to receive such positive interest in this beautiful office suite. We are delighted to conclude the deal with ISIO. The firm is another great occupier for our building and we look forward to having them as our new neighbours.”
Hannah Done, associate director of JLL, commented: “Levels of interest remain strong in the Edinburgh office market for this size and type of fully-fitted high-quality space. George Street, in particularly is a highly sought-after location, within Edinburgh’s ‘Golden Rectangle’, as it gives occupiers and their staff access to excellent communication links, as well as being close to all the city centre retail and leisure facilities.”
The building was acquired by Knight in 2015 and fully refurbished to a high standard to provide five floors of exceptional office accommodation. JLL is the agent at 110 George Street.
