Somerston Group

Somerston Group is a privately owned company founded in 1854 as a shipping business which commissioned, financed, operated and managed a fleet of merchant vessels in its own right, and in partnership with co-investors. In the 1960s, the company began to diversify its interests and, by 1975, the last of the shipping interests had been sold and property investment, land development and resources had become the principal focus. Somerston’s activities gradually expanded and the Group is now engaged in a variety of asset backed investment and development ventures in Europe and North America.
