Real Asset Management (RAM) has appointed Matthew Strotton as head of funds management for its real estate division as it seeks to accelerate its growth trajectory.
Strotton held more than 25 years’ real estate experience in global markets across capital transactions, product development, investment and funds management.
He joined RAM after more than 19 years at QIC Global Real Estate where he was global director and head of funds management, with responsibility for the group’s Australian and United States portfolios.
Prior to joining QIC, he worked for Lendlease in a range of development roles in Australia.
RAM chief executive, Scott Kelly, said hiring Strotton represented a further strengthening of a talented real estate team which would provide Strotton with many opportunities to apply his expertise and experience.
“Matthew will play an integral role in crystallising our existing strategic plans and platforms in the unlisted and listed spaces as well as forging new partnerships and opportunities,” he said.
Strotton said: “I am excited to join a highly successful and energised team to deliver on existing successes and to bring new avenues of capital solutions and growth to the RAM group”.
