Centrus is an independent financial services group that believes in finance with purpose. We provide advice and investment to the projects, companies and assets that matter to people, communities and the environment.


Centrus’ corporate finance team provides a full range of integrated capital raising, strategic and innovative advisory capabilities focused on education, housing, social infrastructure and broader real estate sectors. Centrus has supported clients in raising £5.5bn in funding over the past 2 years.

The market challenges faced by the higher education sector have been intensified by the COVID-19 pandemic, leading to greater uncertainty across a range of areas. This creates further difficulties in strategic planning and decision making. In such an environment, Centrus can provide unparallel strategic and capital management expertise as well as funding solutions, using our experience and knowledge to support universities in achieving their financial and operational goals.

How we can help:

  1. Strategic financial & treasury review of your portfolio
  2. Financial structuring / restructuring
  3. Fundraising across the full spectrum of financing options for universities  – including the banking market, capital markets (private placements and bonds) and alternative solutions (such as development funding, JVs and equity partnerships)
  4. Funding advice – commercial projects (including student accommodation & real estate)
  5. ESG advice – fundraising on a sustainability or sustainability-linked basis for all funding types
  6. Governance support – including treasury policy advice

Analysis includes:

We’d be happy to discuss further how we can help.
