CBRE Global’s Acquisition Of Laxfield Capital

Jones Day advised CBRE Global Investors in the acquisition.

CBRE Group, Inc. announced that it has acquired Laxfield Capital, a real estate debt investment business with approximately GBP 818 million of assets under management in the United Kingdom.

Laxfield Capital will operate as part of the EMEA platform of CBRE Global Investors, CBRE’s real assets investment management business.

Laxfield’s executive team consists of Emma Huepfl as Managing Director, Alexandra Lanni as Head of Investments and Chris McMain as Fund Manager for Debt Investments. Laxfield’s founder Adam Slater will continue to chair the debt business in a consultancy role.

Marco Rampin, who already joined the EMEA business earlier this year from CBRE Capital Advisors, will also join the team and will continue to focus on the Continental European debt business, where he already has a strong track record.

This acquisition is an important step in CBRE Global Investors’ strategy of offering clients an expanded array of real assets investment solutions in leading markets across the globe.
