Background/experience

I’ve been with Investec since 2001. In that time I’ve held four positions, each of which has helped hone my skills and develop the knowledge base I need.

From 2001 – 2005 I was Co-head of Investec Property Limited, a specialist branch of our business focused on niche investments in commercial real estate. My time there taught me the importance of a flexible, entrepreneurial attitude to deal making.

In 2005 I moved to the Structured Property Finance team, where as Team Head I was able to utilise that flexibility to find funding solutions that work for our clients. Then from 2010 – 2019 I was Head of UK Asset Management, adopting a property company mentality to debt recovery by formulating and delivering a business plan to optimise returns for our clients and the Bank via Planning, development and debt restructuring.

My current role as Co-head of the SPF Origination team combines all the skills I have gathered during my time at Investec, the foremost of which has always been putting the client first.
