Corpfin Capital Real Estate has opted for an expert in corporate finance to lead the three investment vehicles that it has in place. The Spanish Socimi has hired Ana Granado (pictured below) as the new CEO of the company.
Granado previously held positions of responsibility at Aguirre Newman and Deloitte. At the real estate company, the director led the corporate finance team for six years and at the consultancy firm, she served for five years as a director of financial advisory in the real estate sector. Moreover, the executive previously worked as an analyst at Santander Investment in the corporate finance department.
Granado is a RICS member and holds a degree in Business Administration and Management, as well as a Masters in Management Skills, both from the Universidad Comercial de Deusto. Moreover, she has completed the Advanced Program in Corporate Finance at the IE Business School.
Corpfin finished 2017 by making new asset purchases for its portfolio. In December, through its vehicles Corpfin Capital Prime Retail II Socimi and Corpfin Capital Prime Retail III Socimi, it acquired two commercial premises, located in Madrid and Vitoria, as reported by Eje Prime. The company is going to invest in up to fifteen more assets and thus plans to spend €100 million between the two vehicles.
Moreover, the company also operates in the real estate business with its vehicle CCPR Retail Parks. That fund targets retail products, primarily medium-sized spaces, with a high management component. According to the group, for that fund, the estimated diversified investment will involve between 12 and 14 operations with an average investment volume of €3 million for each operation, including land, capex, acquisition and marketing costs. Until now, the fund has committed half of its planned investment.
