Nick Jones to join JLL EMEA Industrial & Logistics Capital Markets


LONDON, 21 October 2014 – JLL has recruited Nick Jones into their EMEA Industrial & Logistics capital markets team. Nick will join the firm in January 2015.

 

Commenting on the appointment, Phil Marsden, International Director, UK & EMEA Industrial Capital Markets at JLL said: "The logistics real estate investment market continues to grow across Europe, with significant activity driven by large single asset and portfolio and platform transactions in core markets as well as Spain, Italy and Central and Eastern Europe. Nick is an experienced industrial property specialist and brings with him a strong track record of advising on these complex, cross-border logistics transactions. His expertise will accelerate our buy-side advisory capabilities as well as support the wider growth of our logistics occupier business."

 

JLL's recent logistics and industrial investment advisory transactions include the €523m sale of the Bora Bora portfolio by Tristan Capital Partners/VGP to P3. In August 2014, JLL also announced the appointment of Kuehne + Nagel's Guy Gueirard as Director of EMEA Logistics & Industrial.

 

Nick was previously a partner in Cushman & Wakefield's cross border capital markets team where he advised on a range of market leading logistics transactions including the acquisition of the multi-country Curve portfolio and acquisition of DSV's German HQ in Dusseldorf. He will be based in London.

 

In 2013 JLL European Capital Markets traded an average of €130 million of real estate every working day, advised on the highest volume of real estate investment transactions in the European office, retail, industrial and hotels sectors according to Real Capital Analytics, plus were ranked Top Broker in Europe, according to PropertyEU magazine.

 

Earlier this year, JLL forecast the EMEA logistics and industrial investment market would exceed 2013 volumes and may reach €20 billion.
