Assetz appoints business development manager

Assetz, property investment specialists has recruited Nick Booker as its business development manager, with the task of raising awareness of the Assetz property funds within IFA networks.

Nick Booker has worked as a development consultant and property investment advisor, contributing at major industry and consumer events.

In 2005 he chaired a series of debates on the property market at the leading property investor show held in Londons Docklands.

Over the last 18 months Booker has been involved with several organisations working on self-invested personal pensions and the role that property investment can play in retirement planning.

As co-founder of the website, Booker brings with him the experience of providing readers with daily news and analysis from the UK property market.

Booker also holds a degree in philosophy from Kings College London.

Booker says: “The Assetz property funds present an excellent opportunity for IFAs looking for ways to meet the demand for SIPPs as property investments.

When the often uninspiring world of pensions was combined with property it really captured the public’s imagination.

I look forward to working closely with IFAs and explaining the opportunity Assetz’ innovative new products present them and their clients.”

Stuart Law, managing director of Assetz, says: I am delighted to welcome Booker on board and am confident that he will be an extremely positive addition to the company.

His experience in delivering news and analysis to a wide audience along with his focus on property investment in retirement planning puts him in the ideal position to deliver the message of our funds to IFAs.

His support for IFAs promoting these funds to their clients will bring fund raising to a level that will allow us to beat our target of 150m gross assets under management by the end of 2006.
