“We are pleased that the deal is now effective and we look forward to being able to focus on the next phase of the new company. The deal is in line with Liberty’s growth strategy of partnering with specialist providers to build a pan-African Alternative Asset Manager of choice through STANLIB.

We are confident that JHI Retail will present an attractive service offering to the retail property market.” 

Marna van der Walt, CEO of Excellerate Property Services said: “The partnership will create additional capacity, strengthen existing capabilities to realise value, and enhance JHI Retail’s ability to deliver world class property management services”.

The Liberty Properties and JHI teams combined bring under one roof some of the country’s top property management skills and experience. As a result of this partnership, JHI Retail acquires robust capabilities to attract and grow the property management services business to unlock value, enhance expertise, and enable a customer centric approach.”  

JHI Retail will offer retail management and related services to its multiple clients and a variety of future clients.  The company’s strategy is to grow the retail offering in South Africa and the rest of Africa
