JLL Adds Senior Vice President to Capital Markets team in Vancouver

Local expert joins team to strengthen capital markets business in Western Canada

TORONTO, September 23, 2014JLL (NYSE:JLL) today announced that Jon Ramscar has joined the Vancouver office as Senior Vice President of the firm's Capital Markets group, effective September 15, 2014.

Ramscar returns to JLL bringing a decade of transactional and advisory services experience across all commercial asset classes, residential and joint venture structuring. With extensive experience in income producing property sales, land sales and raising equity capital, Ramscar has been part of over $3.5 billion of transaction volume in BC and Western Canada over the past four years.

"We have seen an increase in capital markets needs from our clients across Western Canada," said Damien Mills, Executive Vice President & Managing Director of Western Canada. "Jon will be a great asset in ensuring that we continue to offer the highest quality services to our clients."

According to JLL's Canadian Quartet Report, Vancouver has increasingly proven itself to be a focus destination for foreign capital investment in Canada. This has been influenced by government issued initiatives including the 'dim sum' bond, which according to the report, the "successful high-profile move was designed to deepen ties with China and to attract more Chinese investment to the province and the City of Vancouver."

"Vancouver is a very active market in commercial real estate right now," said Ramscar. "Increasing foreign capital investment and a strong entrepreneurial real estate culture means there is lots of opportunity. Returning to JLL is an exciting endeavor and I look forward to contributing to the future growth of JLL Canada."
