Savills hires Caryn Donahue to further strengthen its senior living and healthcare capital markets offering

Based at the firm's Margaret Street head office in London, she will focus on larger senior living and healthcare transactions including their financing and structuring. These are rapidly expanding markets in the UK that are seeing increasingly high levels of investment from a diverse global investor pool.

Donahue joins from Cushman & Wakefield, where she was a partner and head of their UK retirement living team. Prior to coming to London, she worked in Cushman's Equity, Debt and Structured Finance team focused on Senior Housing Capital Markets based out of Boston in the US having joined from J.P. Morgan Asset Management. Her extensive sector expertise in the more developed US market and across the UK, paired with her broad transactional experience in the sector will complement Savills OCM's integrated healthcare, senior living, corporate finance and debt advisory offering.

Peter Allen, Executive Director and head of Savills OCM division, says: 'Caryn has a wealth of expertise across the senior living and healthcare sectors and we are absolutely delighted to welcome her to our team. Her passion and drive will be a huge asset for our team and for our clients.'

Caryn Donahue, Director, Savills OCM, adds: 'I am hugely excited to be joining the market-leading OCM division at Savills, partnering with Sam Rowland to help continue to grow our offering in the senior living and healthcare sectors. There is a clear lack of supply of high quality housing for seniors in the UK and I look forward to continuing to work with investor, operator and developer clients to facilitate increased investment into the sector.'
