The addition of The Pears Family adds a reputable financial partner and will further enable us to execute our ambitious business plan."

Bill Benjamin, Senior Partner, Ares Management, said: "With a history of delivering high-quality homes and a proven track-record of profitability, we’re delighted to continue our partnership with Mount Anvil, which is rapidly becoming one of the most respected brands in London residential property development.
