Octopus Real Estate grows retirement team appointing Tim Campbell as Transactions Director

22 Oct 2019

Octopus Real Estate, part of Octopus Group and a leading UK specialist real estate investor, has grown its retirement team with the appointment of Tim Campbell as Transactions Director.

Tim joins Octopus Real Estate, in the newly created role, and will be responsible for negotiating, co-ordinating and executing transactions across the Octopus Real Estate retirement investment universe, as well as supporting Octopus’ existing relationships with developers and operators.

The Octopus Real Estate retirement team partners with institutional investors, operator senior management, and developers of retirement communities, helping to build modern fit-for-purpose retirement housing.

Tim joins from Legal & General Capital where he spent five years as an Investment Manager in the central housing team, leading transactions and strategy in multiple residential sub-sectors, with a focus on retirement and build to rent. Prior to this role Tim’s background was in multi-asset investment management at RSA Insurance Group in London and investment banking in New Zealand. 

Kevin Beirne, Retirement Director at Octopus Real Estate, said:

“As a specialist real estate investor, we understand the opportunities and scale that the retirement market has to offer. Bringing Tim on board, with his versatile background and specific experience and skill in the retirement sector, will further bolster the team in underwriting and managing retirement community investments and deals. 

“We believe that the retirement sector is coming of age and that the new communities we are helping to create will set a high standard and stimulate the market.”

Tim Campbell, Transactions Director at Octopus Real Estate, commented:

“Having seen the work that Octopus Real Estate has been doing in the retirement sector over the last few years, and its approach to future projects, this is a really exciting time to be joining such a talented and ambitious team.”

The appointment comes shortly after Octopus Real Estate announced that it has formed a joint venture with the real estate arm of Schroders to fund the development of four retirement villages with the Audley Group, the UK’s leading provider of luxury retirement villages.
