For Sarah Conway, MTG’s head of real estate, recent work includes advising on transactions valued at over £10 million. ‘That’s where we found there was value for money for international buyers with the currency play helping them,’ she explains.
Conway knows all too well that property is highly personal. ‘You can buy the biggest buildings and it’s all on a commercial base – nobody will have any emotion about it. But the CEO of a company who decides to buy his beautiful apartment or beautiful house? It’s an emotional thing.’
She works closely with private wealth colleagues when property matters intertwine with tax, trust and family governance issues.
