Johnston has joined as an independent investment committee member of the Henley Secure Income fund (Henley SIPUT), which has just completed its second close of £210m, following the fund’s first close in July 2017 and the completion of its first acquisition of around £70m of supported housing assets.
Meanwhile, Sonia Barnett has been promoted to the role of finance director for Henley Healthcare Investments. She has been with the company for eight years, latterly as group financial controller on Henley Investment Management.
In addition, David Blakeborough has joined the firm as senior associate on the Henley Investments team. He joins from AEW UK, an affiliate of AEW Global, where he spent three years.
Stuart Savidge, who is responsible for Henley’s fund management platform, said:
