Luke Billiau has been appointed as the head of capital markets for Australia and New Zealand at JLL. In a May 15 press release, the leading real estate firm has expressed their confidence in Billiau’s capabilities, citing his diverse experience across different asset classes, diverse client relationships, and successful track record of managing teams.

Billiau has been a part of JLL since 2007, and took up the role of head of capital markets for NSW and office investments for Australia prior to this announcement. He was also the senior director of the Queensland capital markets team, and had a senior role leading the state’s valuations and advisory division for JLL.

With over 140 professionals under him, Billiau will be overseeing capital markets across Australia.

The country has been receiving recognition in many asset fields. From housing Singapore’s rich to hosting successful projects, Australia has been spotlighted in many areas. Most recently, Avani announced the opening of their first hotel in Australia located in Sunshine Coast. Similarly, The Work Project opened its first centre in the country, while Singapore was reported to be the third most attractive destination for the world’s rich, following UAE and Australia.

It is with little doubt that Billiau’s expertise and leadership capabilities will help drive JLL’s capital markets platform from strength to strength in the years to come.
