Our robust investment case

The Taylor Wimpey difference

At Taylor Wimpey, we are a different kind of homebuilder. We aim to deliver our strategy in a way that makes a positive contribution to all stakeholders, particularly our employees, the communities we operate in and the environment. This will help build a sustainable advantage and deliver leading financial returns with strong and reliable cashflows through:

  • Our strong culture and values
  • A renewed focus on sustainability
  • A well invested, quality landbank and strong balance sheet
  • Growth at the right time in the cycle
  • Cash generation, enabling significant and reliable returns to shareholders

Our strong culture and values

We have a culture embedded throughout the business of ‘doing the right thing’. Our reputation is important to us and we will not compromise the character of the business. This is increasingly important in a politically sensitive industry and with increased scrutiny and customer expectations.

A renewed focus on sustainability

Whilst short term performance is important, we run the business for the long term. This underpins our approach to the investments into build quality and in developing our people. We also need to be prepared to respond to changes in our regulatory environment and want to play our part in tackling climate change. 

Sustainable development

Well invested quality landbank and strong balance sheet

Our high-quality landbank remains a key competitive advantage and an important driver of value as it enables us to build and sell the right product, create the right community and deliver the right service to our customers. We have an excellent short term landbank and strategic land pipeline, as measured by scale, quality of location and embedded margin. This gives us flexibility and options. Together, with our strong and well capitalised balance sheet, this means we can be very resilient through the cycle.

Growth at the right time in the cycle

We have the ability to grow, without compromising on quality or adding meaningful market risk at the right time in the cycle. Our factory approach to build can drive faster and more controlled growth which can be scaled up to deliver increases in volumes and cash flow on existing assets, depending on market conditions.

Cash generation, enabling significant and reliable returns to shareholders

We are a cash generative business and believe we can sustain this in times of market weakness, due to the strength of our balance sheet, the quality and length of our landbank and consequently the control we have over the timing of land investment. Our aim is to provide a reliable income stream to our shareholders.
