Corey Hamabata moves to Rockpool Capital to lead hospitality and hotel investment strategy APAC

January 25, 2022 Movers & Shakers No Comments

Rockpool Capital, an integrated wealth management firm and multi-family office, has appointed ex-JLL Hotels & Hospitality Group Senior Vice President, Corey Hamabata, to lead its real estate investment practice and to build out a specialized hospitality real estate investment platform in Asia Pacific.

Based in Hong Kong, Corey will be responsible for leading the identification, underwriting, execution and asset management of real estate investments with a focus on hospitality and the expected increase in opportunities as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. His remit will include investing funds through Rockpool Capital’s family office in partnership with institutional investors to renovate and reconfigure underutilized properties to meet domestic and international market demands.

Announcing the appointment, Rockpool Capital’s co-founder & COO, Maurice Koo said: “We are delighted to have Corey join the Rockpool Capital team and bring his extensive real estate experience to our team of investment professionals. Adding a themed investment strategy in this important sector will ensure Rockpool Capital can continually provide access for our next generation clients looking to add new and exciting investments.”

Commenting on his move from JLL, Corey Hamabata said: “I am excited to be joining Rockpool Capital at a time when the hotel and hospitality industry needs to redefine itself for a new era. As a result of the unprecedented impact of the pandemic on the global tourism industry, we are anticipating that numerous opportunities will become available to acquire and optimize underperforming assets while benefitting from the cyclical rebound in the sector.”

CEO of Rockpool Capital, Michael Tung said: “We are pleased to welcome Corey to the team where his successful track record and expertise will enable us to deliver innovative solutions to the clients we serve. Rockpool Capital continues to expand our network and partnerships in Asia where we look to think outside the box for ideas and opportunities.”

Hamabata joins Rockpool Capital from JLL where he worked for the past ten and a half years, most recently as Senior Vice President in Hong Kong, while previously being based in Singapore and Los Angeles. Prior to JLL, he was at a boutique hotel real estate investment and development company based in Chicago covering Acquisitions and Development.
