Jean has contributed to the successful results of the SCOR group and to the development of SCOR Investment Partners. He has played a key role in SCOR Investment Partners’ value-add real estate strategy. He initiated the international diversification of the portfolio with indirect investments, as well as the development of the real estate debt business. I welcome the appointment of Gilles Castiel, who combines a deep understanding of the SCOR group’s culture with in-depth knowledge of the European real estate market in which he has worked for more than 20 years.”
