Property Investor Europe 2 June 2016

Private logistics advisor Delin Capital Asset Management, which has been acquiring and managing assets in the UK and western Europe on behalf of investors, will now move into development and ownership under the leadership of Ekaterina Avdonina.

The company has launched its first large development project in the Netherlands – a 40,000 sq.m. logistics warehouse located close to the port of Rotterdam and Moerdijk and valued at €30m, it said in a statement today. The company’s new strategy will also encompass ownership and active management of warehouse and last mile urban logistics distribution properties.

Avdonina, who will lead the strategic change, commented: “I am excited to be leading the next phase of DCAM’s evolution which will see it become a full-service western European logistics company, building on our existing expertise and track record in the sector. We firmly believe that logistics assets (both big box and urban units) will continue to benefit from strong occupational
demand supported by the structural shifts that are taking place in the purchase and delivery of goods driven by E-commerce.”

DCAM hired Bart de Sitter as development director and added Amos Chia to its investment team, putting him in charge of identifying and underwriting new acquisitions, to strengthen the team.
Established in 2012, DCAM currently manages a portfolio providing more than 550,000 sq.m. of warehouse and distribution space.
