INREV’s Henri Vuong has been appointed by PGIM Real Estate to lead a newly created debt investment research role.

Vuong has been hired as executive director and will head real estate debt investment research within PGIM Real Estate’s global investment research team.

PGIM Real Estate said Vuong, who will be based in London, will develop and lead on debt research across real estate markets and support the portfolio, asset management, acquisitions and marketing efforts of the regional businesses.

Peter Hayes, global head of investment research at PGIM Real Estate, said, Vuong’s appointment will help shape and develop the company’s debt analysis and research, strengthening its existing expertise alongside the equity research.

“Her depth of research experience further enhances our ability to continually deliver innovative, market-leading insight to both our investment teams and clients.”

In September, European association for investors in non-listed real estate vehicles INREV announced the appointment of Iryna Pylypchuk as the new director of research and market information to replace Vuong who was leaving at the end of the month after six years at the helm of the association’s research and market information team.

Vuong’s previous work experience also includes being part of the real estate finance origination team at The Royal Bank of Scotland and a senior property research analyst at PRUPIM, now M&G Real Estate.
