JM Finn has signed a deal for a new London office in the City which the wealth management firm plans to move into later in 2021.
The firm is taking just over 28,700 square feet at 25 Copthall Avenue, with office space for staff, client meetings and a roof terrace for events.
JM Finn will move from five floors at its current nearby offices, to two floors in office space which it believes offers a more efficient layout and flexible approach to working.
It joins companies that have recently agreed lettings, despite the pandemic disrupting the offices sector, with some bosses holding off on property decisions as they try and ride out the virus crisis.
Numerous office workers in London have done their jobs remotely since the first lockdown started in March 2020. A number of companies are set to look at offering more flexible working once the lockdown lifts.
Hugo Bedford, chief executive of JM Finn, said: “We have been in our current home for 13 years, during which time the firm has changed considerably, not least due to the change of working patterns brought on by Covid-19. 25 Copthall Avenue allows for increased flexibility of space with more contemporary amenities, all within a short walk of our current office.”
The company will start to move all 250 staff based in London into their new home in the fourth quarter of 2021.
Property agents Knight Frank and Simon Garfield Property brokered the deal.
