Knight Frank names new Singapore-based global head of capital markets

Neil Brookes is the firm’s current Asia Pacific head of capital markets, but will take on the global leadership role from next month.

Global property consultant Knight Frank has promoted Neil Brookes, its current Asia Pacific Head of Capital Markets, as its new Global Head of Capital Markets, to be based in Singapore from 1 April.

The role represents the first global appointment for the firm outside of the UK.

Brookes currently holds leadership of the company’s Asia transactions team, and has led over $8.5b in cross-border transactions and major asset sales.

In his new role, Brookes will work with the firm’s global clients to harness specialist acquisition, disposal, and capital advisory expertise through the existing Knight Frank platform, whilst expanding the firm’s service offering in growth markets and sectors.

“Structural changes in the investment market have accelerated through the pandemic and our clients are becoming ever more global. As a private partnership, we take a long-term view on providing the best possible client service and I look forward to leveraging our specialist sector expertise and unique access to global wealth to help our clients achieve their goals,” Brookes said.
