Sounds it is going to be a busy 12 months for the team at Tristan Capital Partners with hotel targets in Spain and the UK.

Tristan Capital Partners’ EPISO 5 Fund has acquired the first property of its new hotel investment strategy in Manchester.

The 261-key, four-star hotel is located in Deansgate - one of the city’s oldest city centre thoroughfares.

Kristian Smyth, Executive Director, Investments at Tristan Capital Partners: “This acquisition represents the first step in our wider hotel strategy and we are very excited to have started with a hotel of this quality. The acquisition is our first alongside Hamilton Hotel Partners and we expect to continue to grow this relationship.”

“Funds advised by Tristan have been actively pursuing hospitality opportunities with an emphasis on the UK and Spain and we are focused on acquiring assets which we believe will fit into either our coreplus or opportunistic funds. Our objective is to invest in excess of €500 million over the next 12 months and we are currently in discussions regarding a number of transactions in this space.”
