CA Ventures Grows London-Based European Division with New Executive Hire
CA Ventures, a U.S. real estate investment holding company, today announced an executive appointment in the firm’s new European headquarters, located in London’s Marylebone neighborhood. Christian Davis will serve as vice president of acquisitions, assisting the firm with sourcing and executing purpose-built student housing and private-rented PRS transactions throughout the U.K.
The strategic hire coincides with CA Ventures’ planned $500 million investment in the European housing market. In July, the firm appointed Carlo Matta as head of the European division, which is currently developing two student housing communities each in the U.K. and Poland and is in active negotiations to acquire additional properties and development sites throughout the U.K., as well as other European countries including Ireland, Netherlands, Germany, Spain and Italy.
“As we continue to expand our international footprint with the firm’s new European headquarters in London, we are also hiring the best of the best. Christian is a key industry player who has been integral in the acquisition, development and sale of thousands of purpose-built student and multifamily residential units throughout the U.K.,” said Carlo Matta. “With his expertise, CA is positioned to grow its European portfolio organically through the local market knowledge of industry veterans who will help us identify and execute the best investment opportunities.”
Davis brings to CA a wealth of transactional experience in the U.K.’s alternative residential sector. He began his career as a corporate real estate consultant with Cushman Wakefield, formerly DTZ. For the past several years, Davis has specialized in the acquisition and development of student and build-to-rent communities – working first as development and transaction director with Threesixty Developments Ltd., an early developer of student housing communities in the U.K., and most recently as transactions director with Watkin Jones Group.
Davis earned a bachelor’s degree in geographical sciences from the University of Bristol, a master’s degree in information technology from the University of Nottingham and a postgraduate diploma in surveying from the College of Estate Management. He is also a member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.
CA continues to target both consented and unconsented schemes for development in addition to stalled for-sale schemes considering conversion to rental. The firm is seeking joint venture partners and offering broker incentives to source new investment opportunities. Target student accommodation markets will have a minimum enrollment of 15,000, while private-rented sector markets will boast a population of 200,000 or greater.

Greene Tweed Receives Patent for Rapid Gas Decompression-Resistant Fluoroelastomers and Molded Articles23.10.2018 21:00 | Pressemelding
The U.S. Patent Office has awarded Greene Tweed Patent Number 10,011,690 for Rapid Gas Decompression-Resistant Fluoroelastomer Compositions and Molded Articles. The innovative elastomer technology was developed by a team that included inventor Ron Campbell, PhD, Principal Scientist and Technology Leader for Elastomers in Greene Tweed’s Advanced Technology Group, to provide a competitive advantage in the Energy market and expand technology protected under a previous patent. Rapid gas decompression (RGD) often occurs when high-pressure gas molecules migrate into an elastomer at a compressed state. When the pressure surrounding the elastomer is suddenly released, the compressed gas inside the elastomer tries to expand and exit the elastomer, thus causing RGD (also known as explosive decompression). Most elastomers experience severe blistering or cracking when the force of these expanding gases overcome the strength of the surrounding material; however, materials engineered to withstand RG
Morinaga Milk Study Suggests Infant-Type Human-Residential Bifidobacteria May Benefit Infant Health by Improving Digestion of Peptides in Milk and Grains23.10.2018 18:00 | Pressemelding
Scientists at Morinaga Milk Industry Co., Ltd. (TOKYO:2264) have long theorized that Human-Residential Bifidobacteria (HRB) are superior to non-Human-Residential Bifidobacteria (non-HRB) in promoting good health outcomes. The results of a new study strengthen the evidence for this theory, showing that infant-type HRB may be able to break down incompletely digested peptides in the infants’ gastrointestinal systems and thus contribute to their overall health.

myPOS Founder Christo Georgiev Announces Two Upcoming myPOS Stores in Barcelona and Paris23.10.2018 16:22 | Pressemelding
Christo Georgiev, fintech entrepreneur and founder of myPOS, has confirmed his intention to open two new flagship stores in major European cities by the end of the year. The opening is part of an initiative to bring the product closer to potential customers, giving them a hands-on experience and a live demonstration of what myPOS has to offer. The two new stores will be opened in Barcelona, Spain and Paris, France – two of the most important markets for myPOS. “Our Spanish and French customers have always placed a tremendous amount of trust in us, and we in turn have worked hard to justify it,” Georgiev says. “Opening physical locations in Barcelona and Paris is an extension of that relationship. It’s important to test a product with your own hands before you choose to trust it, and if that’s true for TVs and phones why can’t it apply to POS terminals?” The Barcelona store will open as soon as November, followed shortly by the Paris one before the end of the year. myPOS has already ope
