"Understanding how landlords and tenants can work together to make buildings better is at the centre of what I do, and draws on a range of key skills."
Name: Tom Lewis
Job Title: Fund Management
I work in the fund management team.
I work on a fund that owns over 50 commercial investment properties, all around the UK. The fund owns a range of different properties including offices, shops and warehouses, as well as a city centre hotel and a student hall of residence.
In working on the property fund, I help set and implement the investment strategy – deciding what types of properties we should be buying and selling. I get to go out and about a lot, as it’s very important to visit the properties and meet the occupiers to really understand how each would work as an investment.
