Former Neinor Homes CEO launches new investment firm

Juan Velayos, former managing partner at Alantra and ex-CEO of Neinor Homes, has launched his own real estate investment firm based in Barcelona.

Velayos has set up JV20 to advise investors in value-add real estate acquisitions in Spain. JV20 focuses on acquisition, restructuring, management, repositioning and eventually the build-up and the final sale of the assets, debt, platforms or portfolios.

Velayos joined global investment banking and asset management firm Alantra in June last year as managing partner, responsible for further developing the strategies and geographic reach of Alantra’s real estate practice. Before then, he was CEO of Spanish property developer Neinor Homes.

Neinor Homes was bought by Lone Star from a Spanish bank for some €900 mln in 2014. Under Velayos’ tenure, Neinor went public in March 2017 in the largest-ever IPO for a European residential developer at the time.

Previously, Velayos headed PwC’s global and Spanish real estate practice. He also was CEO of public real estate company Renta Corporación, and a partner at Uría Menéndez Abogados, where he worked in the M&A, Capital Markets and Real Estate practices.
