John Slade to Advise Duff & Phelps Real Estate Advisory Group

Duff & Phelps, the global advisor that protects, restores and maximizes value for clients, recently announced the appointment of John Slade as Non-Executive Chairman of Duff & Phelps’ Real Estate Advisory Group (REAG) International Practice, covering all countries outside the U.S.

Duff & Phelps’ REAG practice provides valuation, due diligence and financial analysis in all real estate sectors. REAG has a turnover of approximately $100 million, of which around $55 million comes from the European practice.
John will help Duff & Phelps strengthen its European and Asian Real Estate offering with an immediate emphasis on growing the firm’s existing London presence. 
John currently serves as Executive Chairman of Evans Randall Investors, a successful London Real Estate Private Equity House. He is a leading figure in global real estate markets, having been at the forefront of many of the largest cross-border investment transactions over the course of his career.
Until 12 months ago, John led the UK operation of BNP Paribas Real Estate where he initiated and drove the take-over of Strutt & Parker, transforming the firm into one of the top UK real estate advisors.
John commented, “I am delighted to take up this role at Duff & Phelps to compliment my role at Evans Randall Investors. Duff & Phelps has an opportunity to build its brand in the commercial real estate market and to become the independent firm of choice for financial and valuations expertise. That’s a unique opportunity and one which will enable me to continue to provide investors with the wide range of services required by the world’s most sophisticated property players, which Duff & Phelps is perfectly placed to offer.”
Mike Weaver, Head of Valuation Advisory Services in EMEA at Duff & Phelps said, “John Slade is a respected senior figure in the market who will bring deep domain expertise, contacts and expertise to Duff & Phelps’ REAG practice.
