Savills plc is a global real estate services provider listed on the London Stock Exchange and is a constituent of the FTSE 250 Index.

History[edit]

The business was established by Alfred Savill in 1855 in London.[4] It was incorporated as a limited company in 1987 and was listed on the London Stock Exchange in 1988.[4] In 1997 it merged with First Pacific Davies (Chinese: 第一太平戴維斯) in Asia.[5] In 1998 it bought majority stakes in the German, French and Spanish arms of Weatherall, Green & Smith.[4]

Operations[edit]

The company provides consulting services and advice (such as valuation, building consultancy, environmental consultancy, landlord and tenant, planning, strategic projects and research) in connection with commercial, residential and agricultural properties, property related financial services and investment management, which includes investment management for institutional or professional investors. It has around 500 offices and associates throughout the Americas, Europe, Asia Pacific, Africa and the Middle East. In March 2010, Savills employed around 3,000 people in the UK and had 20,000 staff worldwide.[6] In early 2013, Savills announced its new Philippine association with KMC MAG Group, the largest Philippine based real estate services firm.
