The firm has announced the appointment of Dr. Ian Robinson as Consultant to drive its new capital markets offering.

Rosette has hired Stuart Jarvis as Investment Director.
Stuart brings with him a strong track record in UK and European commercial real estate combined with a wealth of experience in the Islamic finance sector. A fluent Arabic speaker, Stuart has previously held senior positions at Investment houses in London, Kuwait and Malaysia.
Stuart’s appointment bolsters Rosette’s Real Estate team, which has now transacted over £200 million of assets since its inception in 2016 with a further £60 million currently under offer.
The news follows the recent promotion of Sam Broadhead to Chief Executive Officer. Sam is now leading the growth and development of the business and are looking to expand Rosette into new areas that will create exciting opportunities in the Islamic finance sector.
Concurrently, Rosette is also expanding its geographic reach beyond its traditional GCC market. Amr Kenawy, Rosette’s Chief Business Development Officer, has led efforts in Malaysia and is continuing to take Rosette into the wider Asia Pacific markets with equal success.
This news follows Rosette having reported strong results in 2017, and closing its first deal of 2018: the £50,000,000 acquisition of the 149,000 sq. ft. Tesco Extra supermarket in Oldham, Greater Manchester on behalf of a Qatari institutional investor.
