AMP Capital appoints Wholesale Office Fund Manager


AMP Capital has announced the appointment of Kit Georgeos as the Fund Manager for the AMP Capital Wholesale Office Fund (AWOF).  AWOF is AMP Capital’s flagship office pooled fund, which manages over $6 billion in premium office assets for investors.

Ms Georgeos joins AMP Capital from GPT, where she has been Deputy Fund Manager for the GPT Wholesale Office Fund for the last three and a half years, working with the Fund Manager to maximise investment returns for the fund.  Prior to that, Ms Georgeos spent three years as Head of Product Development (Funds Management), where she was involved in establishing GPT’s funds management strategy and led the launch of the GPT Metro Office fund which listed in October 2014.  Before this, she held the role of Associate Director, Real Estate at Macquarie Bank for eight years, focussed on M&A activity and equity raisings across both the listed and unlisted Real Estate sectors.

AMP Capital Managing Director Office & Logistics Luke Briscoe said that this appointment was made after an extensive internal and external search.

“I am delighted Kit will be joining AMP Capital and heading up one of our flagship real estate funds. With more than 15 years’ experience in real estate funds management, investment banking and capital markets, Kit’s strong commercial experience and knowledge of domestic office markets, along with her deep knowledge of investment management, make her the ideal candidate for this role.

“Kit joins us at an exciting time for the Fund.  AWOF is well positioned, with strong occupancy and 100 per cent weighting to the strongest markets in Australia.  Kit’s focus will be on how to further capitalise on the strong market fundamentals while delivering on the fund’s strategy for our investors and the committed investment pipeline including Quay Quarter, Wynyard and South Eveleigh,” Mr Briscoe said.

Ms Georgeos will report to Mr Briscoe after commencing in late October 2019.
