Verdion increases investment management focus with London HQ appointment

Verdion has today announced the appointment of George Johnstone as Investment Manager based at its London headquarters.

Covering both fund and separate account mandates, George will work closely with Verdion’s investment and asset management teams across Europe. His role will cover all aspects of portfolio and investment management and ensure portfolio-wide best practices and processes.

George joins from Dominvs Group, the privately owned multisector real estate company, where he specialised in supporting deal origination and execution on commercial real estate and development opportunities. Before that he held roles with Escala Partners and Beulah Capital in Australia.

Simon Walter, Director of Asset Management, at Verdion, said: “With a portfolio now standing at €2.6 billion and equity raising for our second fund underway, Verdion’s investment and asset management activity – and requirements – continue to increase. George will provide further support for the team, working across all our European markets and taking a portfolio-wide view on governance and other key areas of best practice.”
