Peter Kirk, a director in JLL's national investment team, is leaving to pursue new opportunities.

JLL said it wished him well in his new endeavours.

The move comes as JLL’s National Investment Portfolio team has announced a strong Q3 and said it looks set for a record-breaking financial year.

Q3 2017 saw the JLL’s UK Capital Markets teams advise on £1.77 billion of acquisitions and sales totalling £3.1 billion. The figures put the team in the top spot for acquisitions, sales and overall transactions in the UK, based on CoStar's figures for the quarter. The total value of transactions the team has advised on in Q3 is £1.4bn ahead of their closest competitor.

Philip Marsden, Lead Director for the National Investment Portfolio team said: “During 2017 the Portfolio team has successful advised both domestic and international clients in landmark portfolio transactions in the UK. Given the continued political and economic headwinds around Brexit, the UK portfolio market in 2017 has proved to be robust and resilient. The acquisitions by global capital like Blackstone and GLP has demonstrated a long term commitment to the UK real estate market. JLL has been delighted to be at the forefront of this portfolio activity, reflecting its best in class team.”
