Savills IM Names New APAC Ex-Japan Head

International real estate manager Savills Investment Management makes senior hire.

Savills Investment Management has appointed Hsueh Ling Ng (pictured) to the new role of head of APAC ex-Japan, to capitalise on investment opportunities in the Asia-Pacific region.

She will take up the position later this month, and report to Alex Jeffrey, chief executive, the firm said in a statement.

Ng will be joining from Lendlease where she was managing director and country head, Singapore, for over six years, as well as chair of Lendlease global commercial REIT management. Prior to that, she spent eight years as chief executive officer of Keppel REIT Management, the firm continued.

Ng will take on overall business management responsibility for Savills IM’s investment and client capital teams across its APAC platform in all markets other than Japan. The new role of head of APAC ex-Japan has been created to capitalise on investment opportunities in the region as well as broaden Savills IM’s client base there.

The firm manages about $1.5 billion of assets in the Asia-Pacific region and $7 billion of capital on behalf of APAC-based clients in global real estate, with plans for substantial growth to come.

"With over 30 years’ experience in the real estate industry and an impressive track record of driving business growth, she has the right credentials to lead our APAC team and to work with our clients across the region,” Jeffrey said. “The newly-created role will be vital in building on our strong presence in the region at what is a key time in the economic cycle, and specifically within the real estate sector.” 

Savills Investment Management is an international real estate investment manager with locations in Amsterdam, Bangkok, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Katowice, London, Luxembourg, Madrid, Milan, Munich, Paris, Singapore, Stockholm, Sydney, Tokyo and Warsaw. It manages total assets under management of €25.7 billion ($28 billion).
