Asset Manager launched to target distressedreal estate exposures (UK/EUR)

A new asset management and advisory business has been established by an experienced team of real estate, financial and legal experts.

Resolute will work with lenders, investors and institutions who own distressed real estate related financial assets that present significant complexity or geographical complications. In particular, Resolute assists when clients do not have sufficient specialized resources to manage their positions.

The team is led by ex-Credit Suisse banker Bill Hancock and Robert Kingsmill, a former real estate lawyer with Allen & Overy and Clifford Chance. Most recently, the pair garnered pan-European and CIS experience with private equity real estate manager JER Partners. Resolute has also appointed an Advisory Board, including Baron Paul Buysse, Thom Wernink and Brian Wilson, which will provide strategic support and advice to the business.

Bill Hancock, Managing Partner of Resolute, said: "We see a significant market need for an independent asset management business, with expertise in understanding the full value chain of indirect real estate exposures. We are focused on providing these specialized services to lenders and investors who do not have the internal resources to monitor and manage investments outside their core markets, and therefore complementing their existing team. We aim to combine unparalleled distressed restructuring skills with intense asset management of the underlying real estate assets. Our blend of professional backgrounds and market experience means we are well placed to offer clients the greatest possible asset recovery expertise."
