Jonathan De Mello, Head of Retail Consultancy at HDH giving his views on M&G trading suspension in national news outlets


Head of Retail Consultancy at Harper Dennis Hobbs (HDH), Jonathan De Mello, was recently quoted in several national news outlets on investment firm M&G’s announcement that it is temporarily suspending dealing in shares of its £2.5bn M&G Property Portfolio fund with immediate effect. M&G owns shopping centres across the country and the fund’s biggest holdings include shopping centres such as Fremlin Walk in Maidstone, Kent, the Gracechurch Centre in Sutton Coldfield and the Bridgend Designer Outlet in Wales.

Jonathan is regularly quoted in several national news outlets which is a testament to HDH’s position as a thought leader in the retail real estate market.
