Knight Frank Investment Management bolsters team with new Partner hire


David Johnson has joined Knight Frank Investment Management as a partner with over 17 years’ experience in the UK real estate market.

David has held positions in advisory roles acquiring and disposing of investment properties across the country in all sectors. Most recently, he worked for Cushman & Wakefield, focussing on the City of London.

His clients have included UK funds, listed entities, property companies, developers and international high net worth investors and institutions.

Recent projects have included the sale of The Leadenhall Building EC3 for in excess of £1.0 billion, 20 Gresham Street EC2 and Moor Place, EC2.

Kevin Aitchison, CEO of KFIM, commented: “A key part of the KFIM strategy has been to strengthen our partnerships in the Asian market, as well as continuing to service our growing UK institutional investment requirements. Following the recent closing of our first two acquisitions on behalf of Korean institutional investors, and new allocations of capital from UK investors last year, we identified David as someone who could provide additional depth and strength to our existing team. With over 17 years of experience in the transactional markets, he will focus primarily on sourcing and identifying stock that will meet our Clients’ targeted investment returns.”
