IPSX Group (International Property Securities Exchange), which operates the world’s first regulated securities exchange dedicated to commercial property, has appointed Huw Stephens as a senior advisor. In his new role he will support the IPSX management and capital markets team in growing the business, particularly by providing support to building the future pipeline of new issuers.
Formerly Head of UK Transactions at PATRIZIA, which manages more than EUR 42 billion of real estate assets across Europe on behalf of a range of global investors, he joined from AXA IM-Real Assets, where he spent 24 years, latterly as Head of UK Transactions.
While at AXA IM-Real Assets, Huw played a leading role in a £5 billion investment and development programme in London, including the 1.25 million sq ft, speculative development of 22 Bishopsgate. Other major transactions he oversaw include the acquisition and subsequent sale of Ropemaker Place, the acquisition, development and sale of 60 London, Holborn Viaduct, the forward commitment of 6 Pancras Square, Kings Cross in 2012, which subsequently was let to Google, and the acquisition and subsequent sale of 20 Gresham Street in the City of London.
David Delaney, CEO at IPSX said: “To have someone of Huw’s calibre and standing in the real estate industry join our senior advisory team will open up a raft of opportunities as we seek to grow our pipeline ahead of our first IPOs in 2020.”
Huw Stephens said: “IPSX will be a game changer in our industry and I am very pleased to be getting involved at this important stage of its development. While the team already has access to a number of senior leaders and professionals on the board and as senior advisers, I am very much looking forward to adding to their counsel by deploying my skills and experience into the future of this venture.”
