ESO Capital

7th March 2019

ESO Real Estate, an investment manager focused on European asset-backed special opportunities, announces that it has strengthened its team with the appointment of Zena Namih as a Director, who will lead real estate asset management, and Sunny Sanghera as an Associate, who joins the investment team.

The team has decades of experience in real estate investment, development, asset management, and risk management, working across multiple economic cycles. ESO Real Estate is part of ESO Capital, an investment firm providing private capital solutions for smaller scale European companies. With a wealth of transactional expertise across its core investment markets – the UK, Ireland, the Nordics, Germany and Benelux – the firm’s complementary combination of real estate and corporate skillsets strengthens the underwriting of investments into real estate operating businesses.

In her role, Zena will have responsibility for the monitoring and management of assets within the ESO Real Estate funds across multiple jurisdictions. Prior to joining ESO, Zena was a Director at Spring11 Advisory Services, a firm which advises large-cap private equity firms on portfolio acquisitions. Whilst at Spring11, she advised on over €50bn acquisitions across multiple jurisdictions.

As an Associate, Sunny will be an integral part of the investment team, with a focus on sourcing and executing new real estate transactions. Prior to joining ESO Real Estate, Sunny was an Analyst in the M&G Real Estate Finance team, responsible for the origination and execution of whole loans throughout Europe. He originated over £250m of loans across real estate sectors for both development and investment transactions.

David Christie, Head of ESO Real Estate, commented: “I am delighted to welcome both Zena and Sunny to the team. They bring valuable diversity of expertise across real estate, credit and structuring, which will be of strategic importance to the growth of ESO Real Estate as we look to deploy more capital.

“At ESO Real Estate, we provide flexible capital solutions to growing asset-backed real estate companies. We are working through a strong pipeline of opportunities across our core geographies, notably the UK, Ireland, DACH regions and Northern Europe.”
