Schroders Capital, part of UK-listed wealth and investment manager , has appointed Iris Aalders in the newly-created role of head of real estate client and product management.

Based in London, she will be responsible for investor servicing and product management for the global real estate business, reporting to Robin Hubbard, head of real estate capital formation.

Aalders has spent the greater part of her career to date at CBRE Global Investors and CBRE, most recently as global executive director of client care for Continental Europe and Asia-Pacific, based in Amsterdam and Singapore. 

Sam Murphy, who joined Schroders eight years ago, has moved internally to become the product manager in Aalders’ team responsible for the real estate debt and hotel fund offerings. Maisie Donati has also joined the team as a product executive to support the various product managers.

The broader Real Estate Capital Formation team is responsible for developing, launching and raising equity for Schroders Capital’s growing range of real estate investment strategies globally, as well as client relationship development, ongoing product management and investor servicing. The team oversees more than $66.5 billion in assets under management. It offers a range of investment strategies, including real estate, private equity, secondaries, venture capital, infrastructure, securitised products and asset-based finance, private debt, insurance-linked securities and BlueOrchard (impact specialists).

Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management
has appointed European small and midcaps specialist Caroline Gauthier as co-head of equities. Based in Paris, she will work alongside Jacques-Aurélien Marcireau, and report to Benjamin Melman, global CIO Asset Management.

Her role will entail co-managing a team of around 20 and helping to identify companies that are creating value for all stakeholders in a robust ESG-integrated setting, the group said.

Before joining Edmond de Rothschild AM, she spent 18 years at Amundi, first as an analyst and fund manager of European small and midcaps, graduating to co-head of the asset class. She also co-founded and served as deputy CEO at Comitium, a subsidiary dedicated to listed assets of APAX Partners. She graduated from Paris IX Dauphine University where she studied corporate finance and financial engineering.

has appointed Raimondo Amabile with immediate effect as global chief investment officer - an expansion of his existing role as head of Europe and Latin America.

PGIM Real Estate is the $1.5 trillion global investment management business of Prudential Financial.

Amabile will be responsible for overseeing PGIM Real Estate’s macro investment strategy globally. A key area of focus will be connecting PGIM Real Estate’s data, proprietary market insights and research, with new technological innovations - such as artificial intelligence and predictive technologies - to help drive allocation and investment decisions. 

As head of Europe, Amabile has reshaped PGIM Real Estate’s European business - overseeing $28 billion in transactions, and building out the equity and private debt product architecture across the risk-return spectrum. Amabile has also led the firm’s Latin America business, growing its key competitive advantage as a leading industrial investment manager in Mexico, alongside strategic expansion opportunities in the region.
