As Realty Income's Head of European Investment Strategy, you will work with the leadership team to drive a core plank of the company’s growth. This includes:
Identifying attractive industries and underwriting tenants (i.e., clients) within them.
Thought leadership on investment themes that cut across geographies for a set of industries (e.g., automotive) or new asset classes
Collaborating on strategic projects with high organizational impact (e.g., M&A).
