Meet the Team

Pav Biran

Investment Analyst

Pav joined Colmore Capital in mid-2023 and brings to bear both strong local knowledge of the city and surrounds, having grown up in Birmingham, and analytical skills first honed whilst studying an undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering and later going on to obtain an MSc in Investment Analysis from Aston University in 2022.

Pav began his career in 2022 in external audit at international advisory firm BDO LLP, specialising in the audit of Not-For-Profit Housing Groups.  Driven by a desire to work in a more agile, entrepreneurial environment where he could gain exposure to working more directly on real estate assets, Pav made the move to Colmore Capital and he focuses on the analysis and modelling of new acquisition opportunities.

Outside of his professional endeavours, Pav keeps busy by pursuing a range of interests in weightlifting, Muay Thai, golf, chess, piano and travelling, inspiring bouts of wistful reflection on more energetic decades amongst his more seasoned colleagues.

Martin began his career in 1988 as a trainee surveyor at the long since departed London firm of Edward Erdman. He subsequently returned to Birmingham where he worked as a commercial agent before setting up his own practice. Inevitably, the pull of development proved too strong, and Martin set up his own company in the mid-1990s.

Over the last three decades Martin has been involved in a diverse range of property transactions from pioneering the residential redevelopment of Birmingham city centre in the mid to late 1990s, through to the refurbishment of a telephone exchange for 600 students and a prison for West Midlands Police Force.

When not working Martin likes to fly in the face of the traditional property stereotype and enjoys playing golf, skiing and going to Twickenham with the family.
