Paul Belson

Paul Belson is a leading authority on the UK's private rented sector and residential investment. He was part of the UK Government's PRS Taskforce - a special group of industry experts commissioned to help grow and expand the private rented sector with greater institutional involvement.

So it was with great pleasure and timing that Paul joined Livewire Performance as the BtR Champion. With his UK expertise and our passion for people, property and service, it made sense that he oversee the UK activity and craft opportunities for Livewire to share our global expertise in this arena

In the two years of the Taskforce's existence, funding for PRS grew from under £1bn to more than £12bn (now estimated at circa £60bn by the BPF). Comprehensive engagement with all stakeholders across the sector has given him a unique insight into this rapidly evolving sector of the real estate market.

Before joining the Taskforce, he was Head of Residential Investment at leading London property firm Chesterton's and has worked in the residential sector for more than 25 years.

Formerly a partner at Knight Frank, he set up the market leading residential research and consultancy team and undertook numerous research mandates on behalf of banks, building societies and pension funds. In the past he has also set up and run a residential fund himself and was instrumental, whilst working at Colliers CRE in persuading a major property company to invest in the residential sector.

Paul is a Member of the Institute of Residential Property Managers (IRPM) and sits on various PRS industry-related panels including The British Property Federation.
