Min Chow Sai has been appointed as Head of Investment Research for Real Estate in Asia Pacific. Min Chow will lead real estate research across Asia Pacific and provide investment insight and analysis for its global and regional portfolios.

Our combination of local research, global insight and an active approach to investing is proving a success for our global clients. Min Chow’s appointment also follows work to expand our direct real estate business in Asia Pacific during 2019.
