Kames strengthens property team with two manager hires

Kames strengthens property team with two manager hires

Kames Capital has hired two additional fund managers to its property team.

Iain Corker joins from DTZ’s retail asset management team, where he was a senior surveyor managing two shopping centres in the South East. He will work alongside Philip Bach and Helen Batten on the group’s active value strategies.

Chris Munday joins from Valad Europe where he ran a £150 million portfolio of commercial properties across the South East and London. He will work with Sarah Cockburn, Kames’ head of unit linked property funds.

The expansion of the team follows Kames’ winning of seven new institutional mandates this year and the launch of its first property investment authorised fund (Paif), the Property Income fund.  

Head of property investment Phil Clark said: ‘Property has long been a key focus for Kames and we have been seeking to further enhance our capabilities in this asset class as investor interest continues to grow.

‘Iain and Chris add even more depth and investment expertise to the property team as we seek to build on our success with institutional investors and boost our presence in the retail market.’
