London headquartered Centurion Properties has appointed Harry Ingham (pictured) as an investment analyst, focusing on acquisitions and asset management. The appointment is in line with the firm’s growth plans as it seeks to diversify its portfolio.
Ingham joins Centurion from accountancy firm Saffery Champness where he spent nearly five years as a senior auditor and supervisor. He qualified as a chartered accountant in 2013, having graduated from Durham University with a first-class degree in Modern History.
Julian Rooth, founder and CEO of Centurion said, “Harry is a very talented individual, who will play a big part in the company’s growth”.
Centurion, founded by Rooth in 2000, has worked with leading institutional investors, including Scottish Widows Investment Partnership (now Aberdeen Asset Management) and TH Real Estate.
Centurion’s focus to date has been in the industrial sector, where, together with its financial partners, it has assembled a portfolio of around £300 million in assets.
The significant yield shift in this sector in recent years has prompted Centurion to adapt this strategy and the company is now looking to broaden its activities into other sectors, in addition to industrial property.
