JLL enhances its funds advisory and placement capabilities with the appointments of Matilde Attolico and Zeynep Fetvaci

Appointments part of amalgamation of existing regional teams into a new Global Funds Advisory team

JLL has hired Matilde Attolico and Zeynep Fetvaci in its newly created Global Funds Advisory team. The hiring of Matilde and Zeynep, together with the amalgamation of existing funds advisory and placement activity into a Global Funds Advisory team, is in line with JLL's strategy to grow its capital raising and investment advisory capabilities which complement its market-leading investment sales and acquisitions business.

As part of the continued evolution of JLL's offering, the Global Funds Advisory team will look to work with the highest quality managers and investors in the funds space. By combining market leading advice, expert project management and global distribution with insights on underlying real estate sectors and markets, JLL believes it will offer something truly unique in the funds advisory space.

Ms Attolico and Ms Fetvaci join JLL from real estate advisory boutique, Hodes Weill & Associates, where both were Managing Directors, and where Ms Attolico had helped establish the firm's London office. Ms Attolico will head-up the JLL team globally, from a London base.

With more than 35 years' experience combined, the pair brings deep expertise and a highly successful track record in capital raising, private placement, distribution and marketing of alternative assets – both debt and equity – across real estate, private equity, infrastructure, venture capital, mezzanine and distressed funds. Prior to Hodes Weill, Ms Attolico was a founding partner of Mercury Capital Advisors, and before that had spent nine years at Merrill Lynch International in a series of specialist roles. Ms Fetvaci's career history includes senior roles at Peakside Capital, Merrill Lynch and Morgan Stanley.

John O'Driscoll, head of corporate finance, EMEA, JLL said: "We're excited about the continued evolution of our offering to clients. Matilde and Zeynep joining our existing team of advisory and capital raising specialists is an important part of our ongoing expansion and we are delighted to welcome them."

Richard Bloxam, global head of capital markets, JLL, said: "Our specialist funds advisory business is positioned to help our clients tap into vast global capital flows moving around the world, to offer investors access to the highest quality opportunities and to help them navigate the complexities of a shifting investment landscape. The challenge, and opportunity, for funds raising capital is that they face a wider and deeper pool of investors than ever before. For investors, it's the option to diversify how they access real estate, whether that's through equity or debt, direct or indirect, to achieve their investment objectives."
