They will advise institutional and private investor clients across all principal property asset classes in the UK and Europe.

Simon joins from Oxford Properties Group where he was managing director, senior vice president investments, Europe.

They previously worked together at Invista REIM where they were responsible for the growth and asset management of the St James’s Place property funds.
