Dear promoted at Kames Capital

Kames Capital has appointed John Dear co-manager of its Active Value Property Fund (open ended). Dear will work alongside the fund’s existing co-manager Helen Batten and report to David Wise, investment director.

Wise said: “The UK commercial property market continues to offer attractive opportunities for investors seeking higher yields, particularly in smaller lot sizes. Tenant demand for such properties also continues to improve, helped by increased occupier confidence.”
