London, 6th November 2012 - Conal Newland, Director in the Student Accommodation team at Jones Lang LaSalle in London has been appointed to lead the firm’s Student Accommodation capability in Sydney.

Philip Hillman, Lead Director of the Student Accommodation team based in London commented: “The student housing sector is becoming increasingly global, attracting investment from a wide range of markets internationally, and becoming an asset class in its own right. There is a rapid growth in the numbers of students attending Higher Education globally, particularly in Asia. Many of our developer/operator clients operate across continents and the key investors in the sector come from across the globe.

Conal’s move to our Sydney office will help offer a sector leading global service to our clients. Student accommodation and Higher Education is a sector that has tremendous growth potential in Australia and the Asia Pacific region. Our clients expect a global perspective with sector expertise on the ground and Conal’s move will be able to fulfil this need.”
