Invesco Real Estate (IRE) has appointed Victoria Stanley as director of fund management for residential investment to continuously-expand UK residential programme spearheaded by John German, senior director of residential investment.
Since the launch of the programme in 2014, IRE’s UK residential investments are now approaching £1bn including pipeline deals, and complements the firm’s push into UK/European operational real estate which currently stands at £1.75bn.
Victoria brings 12 years’ transactional and operational real estate experience from across the UK and Europe to IRE, joining from Long Harbour where she contributed to the firm’s establishment and growth of its residential fund strategy, deploying c.£350m into the UK PRS and BtR market.
Andy Rofe, managing director, Invesco Real Estate – Europe commented: “Victoria’s arrival corresponds with our clients’ growing appetite for investment into the UK residential market due to its potentially strong income component and ability to add diversification to multi-asset portfolios – of particular importance to UK LGPS and pension fund investors. Her expertise across UK and Europe complements the experience of our existing team of residential specialists.”
