The latest senior moves in wealth and asset management from across Europe and the UK.
Adding to its real estate business, Schroders Capital has appointed James MacNamara as head of operational real estate strategies.
He is joining from SVP Global where he was co-head of European Real Estate. MacNamara, who has also held senior positions in real estate and private equity at Kildare Partners, Mount Kellett Capital Management and Perella Weinberg Partners, has over 20 years in the sector.
He starts the newly-created role on September 1, reporting to Schroders Capital’s global head of real estate, Sophie van Oosterom.
MacNamara will primarily focus on the hotel management team and lead on identifying and sourcing new investment opportunities in traditional and new asset classes, within Schroders Capital’s hospitality and operational business lines.
The hotels team operates from Schroders’ offices in London, Paris and Brussels and is around 40 strong. Schroders Capital began managing real estate funds in 1971 and currently manages around £16 billion in gross real estate assets.
