BrickVest, the London based online real estate investment platform, has appointed Jean Romain Lhomme, former head of Colony Capital Europe, to its board in a move to further develop the firm’s institutional level online investment platform.
BrickVest’s platform allows investors to invest in institutional grade commercial real estate investment opportunities with the ease of an online trading platform. Investors can access real estate that previously was only accessible to large institutions such as pension funds and insurance companies.
Lhomme co-headed Colony Capital Europe from 2000 to 2015, where he was responsible for the identification, valuation, execution and monitoring of European investments.
As an active technology business angel since 2015, he co-founded PJX10 with technology entrepreneurs, a laboratory dedicated to innovative startups. He is also currently chairman of the supervisory board of BUT and a Board member of the Endered Group.
“Jean-Romain’s considerable experience in building and managing first class real estate investment platforms and dealing with institutional investors is invaluable in helping BrickVest to grow. We continue to combine best practices of institutional quality investing in real estate with cutting edge technology and first class governance that puts the investor first,” Emmanuel Lumineau, CEO at BrickVest, said.
