I source, underwrite and manage international corporate and private real estate investments on behalf of APG Asset Managements European Real Estate portfolios, predominantly in the residential, student housing, retail and hotel sub-sectors.
I am responsible for the implementation of APG’s investment strategy and my strength is doing this by building and enhancing long-term investment partnerships and creating shared visions for the investment. I lead the assessment, due diligence process, deal-team and negotiation of transactions for APG AM. Subsequently, I represent APG on boards offering strategic advice and reviewing reporting, assets, and performance. I participate in decision making on the ongoing investment strategies, funding, reviewing and approving business operations and plans.
As a principal investor I have a successful track record in real estate investments and performance built up over the last 10 years. I have completed investments and divestments in numerous real estate funds, assets, platforms, companies and JV’s with an investment value in excess of Euro 8.5 billion. I currently manage a portfolio of investments with an equity value of in excess of Euro 2.0 billion on behalf of APG Asset Management.
I have been a keen supporter and early backer of the UK PRS market for the last few years by actively contributing and participating in boards, conferences, and interviews on the subject, making several investments in the UK residential markets.
“I enjoyed Amsterdam last year and this year in Berlin was just as energetic and the conference manages to get all the delegates actively participating and happy to engage. It is refreshing to attend an event where everyone is very happy to engage and share ideas and information freely, without being ego driven. There was a wealth of industry insight given by some really interesting shapers of the sector.
