New adviser hired
Cassels boosts Colliers’ capital markets team
Mr Cassels joins Colliers from Montagu Evans, bringing more than 20 years’ experience in the Scottish investment sector.
He has advised on a number of forward funding projects for both developers seeking funding and investors providing funding; and he has also provided development consultancy advice and onward investment agency advice on numerous high-profile commercial projects.
His appointment as a director in Colliers’ National Capital Markets team follows the hiring of dealmaker Patrick Ford as capital markets director, with a brief to focus on existing UK clients and bringing further international capital to Scotland.
Mr Cassels will be based in Edinburgh and work closely with Mr Ford in Glasgow and colleagues across the country, as Colliers seeks to further expand its capital markets capabilities in Scotland.
Douglas McPhail, head of Colliers International in Scotland, said: “This appointment comes in response to increasing demand for investment advice from clients, as the market continues to gather momentum.
Elliot’s appointment adds another high-profile director to our business. His knowledge of the Scottish investment market will be invaluable, enhancing our offering to clients and he is a great fit with the rest of the team.”
