Philip leads Deloitte’s UK Real Estate Valuation business within Real Assets Advisory and is a member of it’s cross-border EMEA valuation team.
Philip has over 20 years of real estate experience, advising clients in respect of both traditional valuation and appraisal situations including financial reporting, loan advisory and acquisition due diligence as well as participating in multi-disciplinary teams delivering wide ranging business advisory services – notably to the Financial Services sector in connection with major restructuring, assurance and M&A activities.
Having led the Valuation business in the UK for 10 years, Philip has overseen a period of considerable evolution in the delivery of valuation advice. In addition to providing opinions of value, he and his team have refined their offer to bring a wealth of specialist insight to broader business challenges, working seamlessly alongside colleagues from across Deloitte’s service offer. Such situations range from providing buy and sell-side advice on loan portfolios to succinctly identifying key real estate risks within an occupied or investment portfolio subject to a corporate transaction; and from supporting statutory Audit teams in reviewing the robustness of valuations to complementing strategic advice concerning valuation processes and controls within a Risk Advisory context. The approach is one which places the challenges of clients at the centre.
Philip is a regular contributor to valuation profession debates. He has also played a significant role in raising awareness of the impact of Sustainability issues on the Valuation profession and values being reported; chairing and participating in working groups for the RICS, Investment Property Forum and the UK Government.
