Our client is a leading UK institutional investor with multiple £bn AUM in the Infra and Energy space. Now moving into Real Assets and about to ringfence £1bn to investments in sub-sectors such as PRS and Student Accommodation, they require the urgent support of an experienced professional who can help them bring a pipeline of projects to bear as they close this debut Real Assets Fund.


A very well established institutional investor with many billions of GBP invested in Infra/Energy equity and debt.  Now looking to set up a real estate focused team operating on a new wave of transactions including but not limited to PRS and Student accommodation.



Supporting the Head of the team, you will be an integral member from day one and given a sizeable work load to aid the Real Assets platform’s rapid development and identify investible opportunities.  The three key tenets of the profile we are looking for are as follows:

  1. Modelling – you will be modelling and analysing prospective investment opportunities and, as this is the entry point to Real Assets, there is no existing junior support.  You will need to have strong technical modelling skills and an attitude that this is not beneath you
  2. Credit Training/Philosophy – if have never worked in a lending institution or an environment with strong credit training and philosophy, this role may not be the one for you
  3. Real Estate background – you will join a team whose expertise is very strong in Infra/Energy but without a background or very much exposure to Real Estate at all, so it is important that you bring a strong understanding of, and network within, the current UK Real Estate market



The successful candidate will demonstrate all of the following attributes:

  • 7-15 years total career experience
  • At least an established VP/AD level
  • Prior experience in a respectable and recognisable UK Real Estate focused institution
  • You will be immediately available or very quickly extractable
  • Experience of Student Accommodation/PRS projects in the UK is advantageous
  • Strong financial modelling skills
  • Strong credit understanding
  • Strong negotiation skills
