Invesco Real Estate (Invesco), the global real estate investment manager, is pleased to announce the appointment of Anna Duchnowska as head of European Asset Management, effective 1st September 2020. Anna, who joined Invesco in 2014, replaces Etienne Dupuy who is leaving the firm at the end of September to pursue personal projects within Impact Investing.

Anna has also championed some of the firm’s key pan-European asset management initiatives, including ESG, a subject she is passionate about.
Andy Rofe, Managing Director, Head of Europe at Invesco Real Estate commented: “We take a thoughtful approach to succession planning. Our team-based approach and focus on managing talent over the long term helps us provide meaningful opportunities within our business and enables us to transition effectively to the next generation of leadership. Anna’s depth of experience and knowledge coupled with her excellent relationships with some of our key tenants and other stakeholders made her the ideal candidate for the role and provides continuity and reassurance to our clients. I am looking forward to working more closely with Anna as we continue to develop and evolve our asset management business strategy for the benefit of all our clients.”
Anna Duchnowska commented: “I am excited to step into this important role within the firm and work more closely with the 28 asset managers across eight countries to drive forward our asset strategies as well as other initiatives important to the firm’s strategic footprint across Europe.”
