JLL loses APAC research head – Exclusive

Megan Walters had joined the property services firm as head of research for Asia-Pacific capital markets in 2010, before being promoted in 2016.

Megan Walters has stepped down from her role as JLL’s head of research for Asia-Pacific, ending a long stint at the property services firm.

A JLL media spokesperson confirmed Walters’s resignation and said the firm had yet to name her successor.

“We are disappointed that Megan is leaving but we wish her every success in her future career,” the spokesperson told PERE in an email response. “Megan has been with JLL for 10 years and has been a dynamic and committed leader of our Asia-Pacific research team. We thank her for her significant contribution and will be announcing her successor in due course.

Walters joined the firm in 2010 as head of research for Asia-Pacific capital markets, a role in which she was responsible for advising the firm’s investor clients, among other duties. In August 2016, she was promoted to head of research, based in the Singapore office, following the previous incumbent Jane Murray’s departure from the firm.

Before joining JLL, Walters spent a few years leading the regional research function at Cushman & Wakefield.

Walters did not respond to PERE’s queries on her next role.
