Manager Update

 

 

AEW UK REIT plc (LSE: AEWU) (“AEWU” or the "Company") announces that Alex Short has stepped down from her role as Joint Portfolio Manager of AEWU following her resignation from the Company’s investment manager AEW UK Investment Management LLP (“AEW UK”).

Laura Elkin continues as Portfolio Manager of the Company. Laura has played a central role in the AEW UK REIT team delivering value for shareholders since its launch in 2015, initially as Assistant Portfolio Manager and, since early 2020 as Joint Portfolio Manager. This has included identifying and leading the acquisition of the majority of the assets in the current portfolio and overseeing asset management initiatives. Laura will continue to be supported by the wider AEW UK REIT team including Henry Butt as Assistant Portfolio Manager and Director of Asset Management and Nick Winsley, Head of AEW UK.

Henry Butt has been closely involved in the REIT portfolio since 2015 and is the lead asset manager to the portfolio. Nick Winsley has 21 years of property investment experience and, in his capacity of Head of Investment since 2011, has overseen all the acquisitions made by the REIT.

All investment decisions made on behalf of AEW UK require AEW UK’s Investment Management Committee approval, which comprises four experienced property professionals and has remained unchanged for the past 11 years. The REIT Portfolio Management team is supported by the wider AEW UK business, which is part of AEW Group and comprises 28 individuals across asset management, fund operations and strategy.

Mark Burton, Chairman AEW UK REIT commented: “Laura has played a key role in managing the AEW UK REIT portfolio, generating strong returns for shareholders over the past seven years. With many active asset management initiatives currently being undertaken by the team at AEW, we remain confident of continued success for the Company. The Board would particularly like to thank Alex for the role she has played since the IPO of the Company and wish her the best for the future.”
