Secure Property Development & Investment appoints special adviser
Secure Property Development & Investment, a South Eastern European focused property and investment company, has appointed Ned Goodman as special adviser to its board.
Goodman (pictured) is the founder of the Dundee Group of Companies in Canada and president and chief executive of the Dundee Corporation, a Canadian asset management company which focuses primarily on investments in real assets, namely mining, real estate and infrastructure, as well as the agricultural sector. Goodman founded the Dundee Group in 1991, which, under his leadership, became a USD50bn mutual fund entity.
Prior to the Dundee Group, Goodman founded the first exploration flow-through partnership, CMP Group, which has raised almost USD5bn to help companies explore and develop mining and petroleum companies. In 1967 he co-founded Beutel, Goodman and Company which established a reputation as a “go-to” destination for mining and oil investors. Goodman has also played important role in the development of several other companies, such as International Corona and Kinross Gold.
Goodman is chancellor of Brock University and founder of the Goodman Institute of Investment Management at Concordia University. In addition, he has received numerous distinctions, such as the Morningstar Investment Career Achievement in 2005 and Fraser Institute's T Patrick Boyle Founder's Award in October 2012.
Lambros Anagnostopoulos, Secure Property’s chief executive officer, says: “Having become a shareholder of Secure earlier in the year following his investment at the time of the company’s share placing in January, it is a further testament to the company’s potential that Ned has agreed to act as special adviser to the Secure board. He is a very well respected and experienced international investor, with a strong track record in both the real estate sector and the South East Europe markets. Ned will substantially strengthen the collective experience of our board and it gives me great pleasure to welcome him to the company as his support and involvement enhances our already strong line-up of supporters from Canada and the UK.”
