Jose-Luis Pellicer, the former head of research at Patrizia, has joined M&G Real Estate to lead its newly created investment strategy role.

According to Pellicer’s LinkedIn profile, he is now the head of investment strategy at M&G Real Estate, a role he took on this month.

M&G Real Estate confirmed Pellicer’s appointment and said it “will be able to share more info once available”.

In February last year, M&G Real Estate announced plans to create a head of investment strategy role to “oversee investment governance and drive thought leadership in research and digital innovation”.

Pellicer was a partner and head of research at Rockspring Property Investment Managers, which was acquired by Patrizia, from May 2011 to May 2018.

He was confirmed as Patrizia Group’s head of research in May 2018 following the integration of Patrizia, TRIUVA and Rockspring.

His previous roles include working as research and strategy director at AEW Europe and as vice president at Goldman Sachs.
