Long Harbour, the UK real estate and asset-backed investment manager, has promoted Rebecca Taylor to managing director of its build to rent investment team for the Long Harbour Multi-Family (LHMF) investment programme.
Now the third in its series, the LHMF will deploy £500 mln (€580 mln) of capital into build to rent development in the UK within the next two years.
'Rebecca will do an excellent job in further upscaling our build to rent activity and driving this approach forward,' said William Astor, chief executive at Long Harbour.
Taylor will lead the vehicle’s acquisition programme as it targets schemes of over 150 units in London, the South East and selected regional cities, the firm said. The LHMF made its first investment in May 2019 with the £70 mln forward funding of a 166-unit scheme at Tottenham Hale with developer Berkley Square Developments.
Taylor joined Long Harbour in 2015 as director real estate. Prior to this, she spent eight years within Laing O’Rourke’s property and investment team, and brings over 15 years of experience of development and investment projects across the UK, Australia, and UAE.
Said Taylor: 'As we increase our investment activity our priority will be to identify not only the best schemes and developments but the best delivery partners.'
