Andrew Simmons

As the head of Operating Assets, my job is to lead the JCRA team that focuses on the alternative real estate sectors of student accommodation, build to rent, healthcare, & hospitality, and leisure. Within those sectors, I am involved in both our debt advisory work and our hedging consultancy.

I joined JCRA in 2015, returning to financial advisory after some time spent working in the charity sector, in which I was a Finance Director for a top 100 charity. Prior to that I was a partner at Brookfield Financial, advising property clients and other Brookfield group companies on M&A and structured finance.

I hold a degree in Law from Edinburgh University and am a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland. Having qualified as a CA with EY, I continued my early career there, working in the M&A practice advising private equity and mid-market clients, initially in Edinburgh and latterly in London. After moving to London with EY, I began to focus on the real estate sector, first joining Eurohypo Bank and then continuing that focus when joining the Brookfield Group.

No longer working for a large charity, I have replaced that executive role with a trustee role in a relatively young charity in my time outside of work, seeking to continue to be active in that sector with a personal focus on helping young adults to be given the best opportunities available in order to thrive.
