The residential capital markets team will focus on the sale, acquisition, research and funding of all aspects of the sector – including purpose-built student accommodation (PBSA), multifamily, micro living and long-income investments. 

“I am delighted to be joining the Knight Frank team and excited for the coming years where residential investment on an institutional scale will be a key part of delivering suitable housing to a severely-undersupplied market. The international investment community look at Ireland as one of the strongest growth markets in EMEA, and in a post-Covid marketplace, this sector will remain very attractive.”

He will play a key part in implementing our wider strategy to build the leading residential investment team in the UK, Ireland and Europe, and we are extremely pleased to welcome him to the partnership.”
