Abas will be responsible for the acquisitions and disposals in the Netherlands. As Redevco, currently predominantly invested in retail real estate, seeks to diversify into other urban sectors, future investments will have a strong focus on mixed-use locations and residential opportunities.
Adam Starr, Head of Global Transaction Management at Redevco: “We are very confident that Fleur’s arrival will help us realise our overall objectives to grow and diversity. Her extensive experience in different sectors in the Dutch real estate market and especially residential will enable us to further execute our investment strategies.”
With almost 25 years in Dutch real estate, Abas brings a wealth of knowledge, skills and the required network to the Redevco team. She started her career in 1997 as a real estate agent for DRS Makelaars and DTZ Zadelhoff. Since 2005 Abas worked at asset manager Merin, where she operated in various capacities in the areas of Transactions, Asset Management & Development. In parallel Abas developed her own real estate advisory business for private & institutional parties over the past years.
Growth and diversification
Redevco is consolidating and expanding its diversification and growth ambitions. 75% of the investment manager’s acquisitions in the past five years have been outside of fashion retail and future investments will largely be concentrated in mixed-use urban locations, as the blurring of boundaries between real estate asset classes accelerates.
