Pan-European real estate investment firm Europa announces the appointment of Hamish Cameron as Director, Living Asset Manager. He will be responsible for driving the performance of Europa’s assets in the living sector across the UK and Europe.

Based in London and reporting to Head of Residential Investment Ed Crockett, Hamish will play an important role in building on Europa’s twenty-year track record in the living sector, supporting their investment approach of seeking mispriced risk.

“I am excited to be joining a well-established team at Europa, who identified an opportunity to be an early mover in this sector which offers substantial scalability potential across the UK and Europe. Europa’s track record in the living sector means we are well placed to capitalise on future opportunities, carefully protecting clients’ and beneficiaries’ best interests.”

Carrying over 13 years’ experience in the real estate industry, Hamish joins Europa from JLL where he spent the last five years specialising in the living sector across the UK and Europe.

Prior to this, he held the position of Property Portfolio Manager at PLATFORM_ where he was responsible for the management of their first portfolio of Build to Rent assets.

“Given its proven resilience and strong demographic tailwinds, housing in the UK and across Europe remains an area where we seek to identify continued mispriced risk in line with our investment approach. Hamish brings over a decade of experience in the delivery and asset management of rental communities and will be a strong addition to our team.”

Hamish’s appointment builds on Europa’s extensive experience in the living sector as one of the early institutional movers in this market.

Over the last 13 years, Europa has transacted over €900m in housing, Build to Rent, student accommodation and senior living across the UK, Spain, Denmark, and Germany.

“The new senior hire of Hamish, as a specialist Asset Manager, will support Europa’s continued growth in the living sector, where we have significant experience and are seeing continued demand from our clients.”
