We are pleased to announce the appointment of Scott Griffiths as a director in investment management.
Scott joins Glenbrook from Aberdeen Standard Investments (ASI) where he had responsibility for a UK-wide portfolio of circa £500million and he completed over 30 transactions in excess of £400m across all sectors, geographies and deal types, including development. Whilst at ASI, Scott constructed a sub-fund focused on smaller, regional properties that consistently performed top in its MSCI index.
A Chartered Surveyor, Scott previously worked in national investment at Drivers Jonas/Deloitte where he gained significant experience asset managing distressed property portfolios and advising on acquisitions for private equity. Scott graduated from Manchester University with first class honours before completing a real estate conversion course at College of Estate Management, Reading.
Speaking about the appointment, director, Guy Butler, commented: “To date, we have had notable success in our investment business working with a select number of family offices and high net-worth individuals. To complement and expand this offer, we are now developing niche investment strategies exploring opportunities in regional markets. Scott has considerable experience in this area and we look forward to working with him to develop this strategy at a very interesting time in the real estate sector.”
Scott continued: “This is an exciting role providing the freedom to build on Glenbrook’s success and work with investors that share our views on the increasing level of opportunity in regional markets, for dynamic strategies offering strong risk adjusted return”.
Scott will work alongside fellow investment directors Richard Rees and Chris Lloyd in our growing investment team.
