I am delighted to announce we have appointed Adrian Benedict, Head of Real Estate Solutions at Fidelity International, as the new Chair of AREF.
This is a pivotal time for real estate funds, with AREF’s board focussing on guiding the industry through the challenges of coronavirus and Brexit, while continuing to promote investment in real estate funds. Adrian’s expertise and knowledge of the sector will help the organisation and its members navigate this critical period.
I’d also like to offer my thanks to Deborah Lloyd, our former Chair, for her service to AREF. During her tenure she played a crucial role in rejuvenating the Board and negotiating and developing our partnership with the IA. I am glad that we will retain the benefit of her counsel as a Board member.
I am also pleased to announce that Adrian will be joined by new board member, Anne Breen, Head of Investment Strategy at Aberdeen Standard.
