Mayfair Capital hires experienced manager for Swiss Life’s real estate business


Mayfair Capital Investment Management, the wholly owned UK platform of Swiss Life Asset Management, has hired Maureen Mahr von Staszewski to lead the Pan European Investment program for Swiss Life. 
Mahr von Staszewski, who joins from Cromwell Property Group, has considerable experience of working on PanEuropean property strategies – encompassing deal origination, transaction and fund management. Prior to Cromwell, she performed a similar role for AXA Investment Management and has strong experience of working across a broad range of European markets. 
She will be based in Mayfair Capital’s London office and will play a key role in investing on behalf of Swiss Life’s new and forthcoming property funds, backed by investment from Swiss Life and third-party investors.  
James Thornton, Chief Executive of Mayfair Capital, said: “We are pleased to welcome Maureen as a key hire in the context of Swiss Life’s expanded real estate offering for international investors. Maureen has a strong track record and knowledge of investing across Europe and her appointment follows on from the creation of an International Business Development team based in London, headed by Matt Dimond. London is the natural location to base the Pan European diversified real estate team, utilising investment strategy as well as Swiss Life Group’s extensive real estate expertise across Europe.” 
Mahr von Staszewski added: “I am delighted to have joined Mayfair Capital and look forward to being part of implementing Swiss Life’s business plan for its Pan-European funds. In an era where real estate performance is increasingly defined by fast evolving thematic changes, both macro and local, successful investment requires a depth of resources in research, transacting and management – as well as a long-term alignment of interest from significant balance sheet co-investment by managers. In all these respects, Swiss Life is well-positioned to deliver a compelling proposition for investors entering or expanding in the European real estate market”
