Immobel Capital Partners, the London-based investment management business of Immobel Group, has appointed Monica O’Neill as Head of Capital and Investor Relations.
Monica O’Neill joins with over thirty years’ experience in fundraising, global marketing, joint ventures, investor relations and compliance matters, having previously worked across leading international private equity real estate firms.
Most recently she has been advising global clients through her own consulting firm, ENSO Advisors LLC. Prior to this she was one of the founding partners of Tristan Capital Partners, which during her tenure grew from 6 to 100 employees and over €10 billion under management.
O’Neill will work with Duncan Owen, who joined to establish Immobel Capital partners as CEO in January.
Immobel Capital Partners focuses on creating ‘Green’ pan European investment strategies in the office and residential sectors where Immobel is already a market leader. The Company has a focus on urban centres that provide the opportunity to create a new generation of sustainable and smart living and workplace environments close to Central Business Districts. Balance sheet co-investment from Immobel alongside third party capital will ensure clear alignment with investors. Value creation will be delivered through the careful selection of assets that are gaining from long-term structural forces and which are less dependent on the economic cycle.
Immobel Capital Partners acquired the first asset, White Rose Office Park in Leeds, earlier this month and this will be the initial investment for its green office strategy.
Commenting, Duncan Owen said: “Monica brings an outstanding track record and network of relationships having worked alongside leading global real estate investors for many years. We are thrilled she is joining us and look forward to working alongside her as we deliver on our growth strategy.”
Monica O’Neill added: “The Immobel Capital Partners sustainable proposition and its focus on technological advances resonates with me. I am especially excited to be joining one of the new breed of co-investing managers which has its origins in sustainable real estate.”
