Savills Investment Management (Savills IM), the international real estate manager, has appointed Hsueh Ling Ng to the new role of head of Apac ex-Japan. She will take up the role later this month, and report to Alex Jeffrey, chief executive.
Ng will take on overall business management responsibility for Savills IM’s investment and client capital teams across its Apac platform in all markets other than Japan.
The new role of head of ApacC ex-Japan has been created to capitalise on the compelling investment case in the region, which offers strong, long-term economic growth and diversification of investment opportunities, as well as to broaden Savills IM’s client base in the region, said the firm, in a statement.
“The newly created role will be vital in building on our strong presence in the region at what is a key time in the economic cycle, and specifically within the real estate sector,” said Jeffrey.
Ng joins from Lendlease, where she has held the role of managing director & country head, Singapore, for over six years, and also recently the additional role of chair of Lendlease Global Commercial REIT Management. Prior to this, she spent eight years as chief executive officer of Keppel REIT Management.
Savills IM currently manages about $1.5bn of assets in the Apac region and $7bn of capital on behalf of Apac-based clients in global real estate. It has local offices in Singapore, Tokyo, Bangkok (as part of a cooperation agreement with Savills Thailand) and Sydney. Savills IM is part of the Savills plc group.
The UK-headquarter firm has an established presence in 16 locations: Amsterdam, Bangkok, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Katowice, London, Luxembourg, Madrid, Milan, Munich, Paris, Singapore, Stockholm, Sydney, Tokyo and Warsaw.
