Jamie Ritblat, founder and chief executive of Delancey Real Estate Asset Management, has been named as the non-executive chairperson of private equity real estate firm Mitheridge Capital Management.
Since its foundation in 2010, Mitheridge has undertaken substantial private equity real estate investment in London. Its current investment focus is on the acute supply/demand imbalance in accessibly priced homes in London and the South East.
Mitheridge founder and chief executive William Yerburgh said: “Jamie will be a supportive and challenging non-executive chair with outstanding experience, and we’re excited to be working together.”
Ritblat said: “Mitheridge is a fascinating, high-quality business with a hunger for growth, shrewd insights into thematic investing in real estate and demonstrable institutional fundraising capability. It has a good mix of property and financial expertise and a compelling investment philosophy. I look forward to assisting its development over the coming years.”
In late 2015, Mitheridge formed an operating partnership with PMB Holdings, the company founded and chaired by Peter Beckwith, to provide funding for accessible housing development.
Fiona Lindblom, COO, joined the firm at the start of 2016, after a career in investment management, including a period at NM Rothschild & Sons specialising in corporate and private wealth structuring.
