Why we invested

The global flexible workspace market is estimated to be worth £19 billion and is growing rapidly – driven by changing corporate attitudes, technology and an increasingly flexible workforce – as is the market for short-term managed office space which is worth £13 billion.  The Instant Group is uniquely positioned to capitalise on this growth due to its value-added service offering, market-leading data and independent, client-centric business model, which is highly differentiated from traditional providers.

The story so far

The Instant Group is continuing its strong record of organic growth and also recently completed the acquisition of Incendium an independent corporate real estate company.

The investment from Bowmark will allow us to retain our independence and scale the business globally to take advantage of the vast potential of the international flex market.  Bowmark’s sector knowledge was clear from the outset and we look forward to working with its team to realise our ambitions for the future.
