Schroder Property strengthens UK team with two new appointments


Schroder Property has appointed Ian Mason as head of UK property fund management and Tamsin Frost as head of balanced property funds.

Schroder Property has appointed Ian Mason as head of UK property fund management and Tamsin Frost as head of balanced property funds. Mason, who has more than 27 years’ investment experience, was previously head of its UK and European business at BlackRock and manager of the BlackRock UK Property Fund, a top-quartile performing fund over the past 10 years.

Mason will assume responsibility for the Schroder Property UK fund management and asset management functions including the role of fund manager for the Schroder Exempt Property Unit Trust. He will report to Neil Turner, Schroders’ head of global property fund management.

Frost, who was previously as client director for Schroders’ institutional business, joined the firm in 1986 as a property securities analyst. She will be responsible for client service, sales and sales support for the flagship UK Balanced Fund and the Schroder Exempt Property Unit Trust as well as Schroder Global Property Securities, Schroder Asian Property Securities, Schroder Indirect Real Estate Fund and the Schroder Property multi-manager portfolios.

William Hill, head of Schroder Property, says: ‘Ian’s and Tamsin’s wealth of investment experience and well-established relationships within the industry is a huge asset to our growing UK property business.’

Schroders has managed property funds since 1971 and had more than GBP8.9bn in gross property assets under management, excluding crossholdings, at the end of March. The business has more than 130 staff at offices in London, Wiesbaden, Amsterdam, Milan, Jersey, Paris, Luxembourg, Stockholm and Hong Kong active in property fund management, research and strategy, investor relations, finance and administration.

The team also benefits from the resources of the Schroders Group, a global asset management company with more than 250 portfolio managers and analysts and GBP130.6bn in assets under management at the end of the first quarter for financial institutions including pension funds, banks and insurance companies, local and public authorities, governments, charities, high net worth individuals and retail investors.
