LGIM Real Assets appoints former Schroders fund manager

Tony DohertyLegal & General Investment Management’s real estate and infrastructure arm, LGIM Real Assets, has appointed Tony Doherty as head of product development in its business development team.

He will oversee product structuring and fund launches across the wider real assets division of LGIM, alongside providing equity raising support for LGIM’s specialist property funds and the execution of indirect transactions.

Prior to joining LGIM Real Assets, he was a fund manager in the indirect real estate space at Schroders.

Charlie Walker, director of business development, says: “As we continue to move into new areas, Dan’s leadership of our Build to Rent Fund is the start of more announcements in this area in the months to come.”

LGIM Real Assets manages £717 billion in assets.
