Knight Frank appoints new head of strategic capital

Property consultant Knight Frank has appointed Josephine Jones (pictured above, right), as head of strategic capital, who will join the firm as a partner in September this year.

Josephine’s newly created team will sit within Knight Frank Capital Advisory (KFCA), an FCA-regulated business that provides integrated capital structuring and sourcing services for real estate investors across the UK and Europe.

She has 15 years of transactional experience in the financial sector, having held several key roles at HSBC from 2007 to 2022, such as MD for the real estate finance team within the Asia-Pacific region.

Responsibilities in her new role will include providing strategic advice to institutional clients on large or complex transactions, including those with operational income, concentrated tenant profiles or which require multiple or hybrid financing sources.

Her remit will cover green and ESG-linked deals, multi-jurisdictional portfolios, and corporate and infrastructure cross-over transactions.

Lisa Attenborough, head of debt advisory at Knight Frank (pictured above, left), said: “Josephine’s experience of working with complicated financial structures will bring a unique added dimension to KFCA, while her detailed understanding of the underlying income streams and tenant profiles of institutional assets will strengthen our consultancy, agency and capital raising offering.”

James Mannix, head of residential development and investment at Knight Frank, added: “Our ambition is to expand key teams around the world by hiring exceptionally talented individuals who are trailblazers within their field.

“Josephine’s track-record has earned her a reputation as one of the financial industry’s shining stars, and we’re delighted she’s joining Knight Frank.”
