Midlands-based real estate investment firm, Colmore Capital has appointed Henry Blomfield to its expanding team.
Henry joins Colmore Capital as an Investment Analyst, bringing experience in real estate asset management and property valuation from positions at PGIM Real Estate and Savills.
In his role, Henry will be responsible for the management of existing assets in Colmore Capital’s funds and analysing the viability of new investment opportunities as the company seeks to build upon a string of successful acquisitions and disposals over the last 18 months.
Henry said: “Colmore Capital stood out to me as an agile and lean company where I could get real and wide-ranging exposure to all elements of the commercial real estate life cycle. I’m very much looking forward to widening my experience in financial analysis of real estate in a private equity context and working directly on the delivery of asset management initiatives and strategies. I’m pleased to say, as a newcomer to Birmingham, I’ve received an extremely warm welcome!”
Following the appointment of Sholom Cohen as Investment Associate at Colmore Capital in 2021, the addition of Henry will allow it to further expand its focus on new acquisitions to meet buoyant investor demand.
David Corridan, Co-Founder at Colmore Capital, said: “While Henry is relatively new to the real estate sector, his background and approach impressed us, and we are proud to welcome him to the team.
“Henry will primarily be supporting us through our modelling, analysis and research processes as we work on new investment opportunities. Our investors continue to have a strong appetite for well-located assets where there is the opportunity to add significant value through targeted, well-considered investment and hands-on asset management.”
Colmore Capital’s current portfolio includes Quartz Point at Solihull, Wavendon Business Park in Milton Keynes and Bedfont Lakes Business Park in West London, after the recent exits from AMH55 in Aston and Swift 34 in Rugby following successful completion of the assets’ business plans.
