Nuveen Real Estate expands Dutch presence appointing new investment specialist in Amsterdam
Nuveen Real Estate, one of the largest investment managers globally, has welcomed Daan van der Veen to its new Amsterdam office. He joins as an investment and asset management specialist, focusing on logistics and growing the presence of Nuveen Real Estate in the region.
Currently, the firm has an existing Dutch portfolio of c. €1.7 billion AUM.
Van der Veen joins from Merin, where he spent the last seven years. He was responsible for the set up and build of their asset management department and more recently took on the role of leading their business development. Prior to this, he worked for CBRE in an asset management team.
Nuveen opened its Dutch office earlier this year in the South Axis of Amsterdam. It followed a string of real estate acquisitions across the Dutch market in 2019 and a desire for Nuveen to be better positioned to both manage its existing portfolio and identify new investment opportunities.
Daan joins Sebastian Zwart (pictured above) who started as an Investment & Portfolio Manager for the firm in Amsterdam when the office opened. Sebastian is responsible for managing and growing the office portfolio in the region. Prior to joining the firm, Zwart was at PATRIZIA for five years, managing a range of multi-sector real estate portfolios and assets. Before this, he began his career at Savills where he advised on residential, student housing and office transactions as part of its Investment team.
The office, led by Tim Horrocks, Head of Continental Europe for Nuveen Real Estate, currently offers real estate capabilities, predominantly focusing on the office and logistics markets. There are also plans to expand the local team to include Advisory Services to enhance Nuveen’s ability to advise and service future and existing clients.
“We are delighted to have both Sebastian and Daan on board to help us achieve our investment ambitions in The Netherlands. They both bring a wealth of experience from well-respected firms and can provide plenty of fresh insight and local knowledge. Over the past few years, we have increasingly invested in the Dutch market through our real estate business, so it makes sense that we have our own presence, and established onsite team here,” comments Tim Horrocks.
Nuveen has been active in the Benelux region for more than 15 years.
