Former DTZ officer strengthens the company's unit head in Asia Pacific region based in Singapore.
Jones Lang LaSalle is pleased to announce that the firm has strengthened its International Capital Markets business with the appointment of Alistair Meadows, a respected Capital Markets expert. Meadows, who will officially assume his role as Head of International Capital Group, Asia Pacific (ICG) from August this year, will be based in Singapore, according to a Jones Lang LaSalle report.
Meadows, who has 15 years international real estate experience within Asia Pacific and Europe, joins Jones Lang LaSalle from DTZ Sydney, where he held the role of Regional Director, Capital Markets. He will work alongside Andrew Martin, a member of the ICG based in Sydney, Australia, and Stuart Crow, Head of Asia Pacific Capital Markets in Singapore, to help drive the expansion of the firm’s global Capital Markets business.
Jones Lang LaSalle’s ICG team is a group of senior Capital Markets professionals who oversee and coordinate the sale and financing of trophy assets with global investor appeal. Meadows will focus on facilitating cross border capital flows and investment transactions, driving sources of capital especially in Korea, China and South East Asia, to invest outside of Asia Pacific.
Arthur de Haast, Lead Director of the firm’s International Capital Group says, “The experience, expertise and client networks that Alistair brings on board will bolster the support that our global ICG teams in London, Washington DC, Singapore, Sydney, Hong Kong and Dubai, provide to the local and regional Capital Markets teams across the globe. Attracting senior leaders like him to our firm is also evidence that our expanding capital markets business and dominant global brand create a career opportunity for the best in our industry.”
“In the past six months, Jones Lang LaSalle has moved assertively to build an industry-leading Capital Markets business that leverages on our global connections, cross border expertise and research capabilities, to provide clients with the best advice on their global investment transactions,” adds de Haast.
Alastair Hughes, Chief Executive Officer of Jones Lang LaSalle for Asia Pacific says, “The appointment of Alistair is a coup for our Capital Markets business. He has an impressive track record which will further strengthen our global connectivity in the real estate Capital Markets and Corporate Finance arena.”
“We are well positioned to take advantage of the increase in capital volumes in the property market. Cross border momentum is building as economies continue to recover and with an expected growth in investment volumes of 35-45% across the region this year, we are seeing a renewed appeal to investors in the market,” comments Hughes.
Meadows, who is 39, holds a Masters Degree in Land Economy from Cambridge University and a Bachelor of Arts from University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne. During his tenure with DTZ, he was responsible for major cross border investment transactions totaling over USD3 billion, with both in-bound capital to Australia and out-bound capital to Europe and Japan.
