Mercer has won the gold award for investment consultancy at the 2010 Investment & Pensions Europe Real Estate Awards. It is the fourth time in the last five years that Mercer has won this category. The IPE Real Estate Awards honour investors and service providers for performance, transparency and innovation in investing within the real estate sector.
Mercer was nominated and voted winner by IPE Real Estate’s readers, which mainly represent pension funds from across Europe. The publication has over 10,000 readers.
Paul Richards, Head of Mercer’s European Real Estate boutique, commented: ”It is a huge honour to be recognised by our European clients and the industry as market-leading within the real estate consultancy space. We are thrilled to have received this award which, we believe, reflects the confidence in our European real estate research and strategic advice.
“Since the start of 2009 Mercer has conducted around 100 real estate searches, accounting for over £2.5bn. As most major real estate markets have recently seen a return to growth around the globe, we have now increased our global team to 11 full-time real estate analysts, based in nine locations around the world. With these increased resources, we aim to deepen our expertise and analysis of the sector still further."
