Gerald Eve has hired Daniel Okin and Charlie Ingham to build the firm’s new Capital Partners offering.
Gerald Eve Capital Partners, the firm’s strategic investment, portfolio and asset management business that was established in 2020, will acquire and manage UK commercial real estate on behalf of, and in partnership with, third party investors.
”Daniel and Charlie both join as partners having previously worked together at Square Metre Asset Management, where they were integral members of the team that oversaw the successful acquisition, management and disposal of over £1 billion of commercial real estate in partnership with Goldman Sachs,” said the firm in a statement.
Daniel Okin has experience in strategic portfolio and asset management, acquisitions and disposals, while Charlie Ingham’s background is in investment management, capital raising and investor relations.
John Rodgers, partner at Gerald Eve, said: “Now more than ever, investors are seeking innovative, proactive strategies for their existing holdings and emerging opportunities, and the new Gerald Eve Capital Partners offering will help us better align with clients’ requirements in this rapidly shifting marketplace.
”The experience and insight that Daniel and Charlie bring will be vital in developing the new offering and driving real value for investors. Our cross-disciplinary expertise is second-to-none, and by bringing these skills together under the Gerald Eve Capital Partners umbrella we will offer a truly market-leading service, enabling clients to take advantage of new opportunities.”
Simon Prichard, senior partner at Gerald Eve, said: “As a firm we have always sought to identify and invest in talent where it will strengthen our client offer, and that has never been truer than it is now. As we all adjust to economic and societal shifts, only the very best in advice will do, and where we can boost our expertise we will seek to do so. For the right people and teams, our door is always open.”
