Barwood Capital and Caisson Investment Management have partnered with Henry Angell James Memorial Trust (the “Trust”) to install eight Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs) across it multi-let industrial portfolio in areas such as Birmingham, Nottingham and Thatcham.

The AEDs have been an investment of £12,000 and are to be installed in convenient locations at the estates or nearby to ensure they are easily accessible to not only the people who work there but also the local residents. The defibrillators will be registered with The Circuit, the national defibrillator network backed by the NHS and the British Heart Foundation so that as soon as anyone has a cardiac arrest and 999 is called the closest AED can be identified.

Barwood Capital and Caisson were introduced to the Trust at the 2020 Industrial Agents Society Awards and immediately saw the important work it was doing. They were more than happy to help such a great cause and their multi-let estates were seen as the perfect urban locations.

“Hearing Sally talk so passionately about the importance of the AED provision in the local community immediately struck a chord. I knew it was a good fit for what we are trying to achieve in the communities in which we are invested as part of our sustainability framework.  It just seemed like the right thing to do,” said Danielle Sheppard, senior investment director at Barwood Capital.

Mark Bowden, property partner at Caisson added: “When you consider that administering a defibrillator on a patient combined with CPR in the first 3-5 minutes increases their chances of living up to 75 per cent, we see this as a vital part of our health and safety practice towards tenants and their customers, helping to create a safer business environment.”
