Intu has appointed Dushyant Sangar as the new chief investment officer.
Sangar will be responsible for driving the Intu’s ongoing investment strategy as well as managing company acquisitions and disposals.
Before joining Intu, Sangar worked as part of a corporate acquisitions team and had a role in investment banking at UBS where he specialised in real estate.
He is currently the corporate development director at Intu, a role which he was appointed to in 2014.
Sangar has since driven Intu’s strategic portfolio as well as all of the company’s investment and divestment transactions, including recent joint ventures.
He has also been responsible for creating relationships with Intu’s capital partners which has included CPPIB, Nuveen, LaSalle, KWAP and most recently Cale Street, backed by the Kuwait Investment Office, London.
Sangar joined Intu back in 2010 and worked on more than £5 billion worth of transactions, including Intu’s acquisition of Trafford Centre.
“A key strategic objective for us is making smart use of capital which includes reducing leverage and prioritising investment that furthers our winning destination strategy,” Intu chief executive Matthew Roberts said.
“Dushyant will be key in delivering disciplined capital allocation across the business and I very much look forward to working with him.”
