Alan Supple joined J.P. Morgan Asset Management as head of global real estate securities, a spokeswoman said.
It is a new position, and Mr. Supple is based in London. He oversees investments of more than $2.5 billion in global and international listed real estate, the spokeswoman said in an e-mail.
Mr. Supple reports to Howard Williams, head of the global equities team.
“(Mr. Supple's) broad investment background brings a wealth of real estate industry experience spanning portfolio management, corporate direct investment and corporate advisory roles,” Mr. Williams said in a news release. “With this, he brings a keen eye for judging investment opportunities across the sector.”
Mr. Williams said listed real estate offers investors a “relatively stable income profile and, in many cases, attractive growth opportunities. Furthermore, specialist sectors such as this are fertile ground for active management.”
Mr. Supple joined from CenterSquare Investment Management, which is BNY Mellon Asset Management's real estate investment subsidiary. The JPMAM release said he built and led a team responsible for the European portion of global real estate securities strategies. A spokeswoman for CenterSquare said the firm promoted Matthew Goulding, vice president, to lead the European team.
