Bruce Wan appointed as Head of Research for MaxCap

Sydney, 1 March 2023 – MaxCap Group, one of Australia’s leading Commercial Real Estate Investment Managers has appointed Bruce Wan as Head of Research.

Bruce is an extremely well-regarded commercial real estate strategist in the Asia Pacific region. He brings more than 25 years of experience in economic and investment analysis to MaxCap, with a focus on real estate market research.

He joins MaxCap from BlackRock where he was Head of Real Asset Research for the Asia Pacific region based mostly in Hong Kong for five years. Prior to BlackRock, he was an Associate Director at Macquarie Bank in Sydney for nine years in a client-facing role providing research and strategic advice to global pension and sovereign wealth funds. Before Macquarie, he held senior economics roles at Queensland Investment Corporation and Commonwealth Treasury.

At MaxCap, Bruce will lead the research function to support the business and product strategy. He will provide economic and commercial real estate market insights and strategic perspectives to investors on a global basis supporting the capital origination and the institutional mandate management team.

Bruce will be based in Sydney, commencing on 1 March, and will report to Rob Hattersley, Group Head of Capital.

Commenting on his appointment, Mr Hattersley said “Investors onshore and offshore are increasingly engaged with the Australian commercial real estate investment market. Bruce’s experience and insights will further enhance our proposition and inform their understanding of this market, asset class, and opportunities that exist for risk-adjusted returns.”

His appointment is the latest in a series of hires to MaxCap’s Capital team, following Rob Hattersley’s appointment in October 2022.
