BrickVest co-founder and CIO Dr. Thomas Schneider is the latest guest speaker to be announced for the FinTech Investor Forum in London on November 8.

Schneider will speak alongside a number of other distinguished banking CEOs and heads of innovation on the Bank Innovation panel. The event brings together 100 FinTech investment firms and financial institutions with CEOs of successful FinTech startups and scale-ups.

Co-founding BrickVest in 2014, Schneider has helped create the real estate investment firm which connects sophisticated investors with a wide range of institutional class real estate investment opportunities. Earlier this week the London-based company closed a new £7m funding round and formed a partnership with Berlin Hyp to help diversify the company’s revenue streams.

He has gained over 12 years of experience in real estate investment, finance and development. In 2009 Schneider founded real estate private equity company Limmat Group, which focuses on investing and developing real estate projects in Europe and the US. Over the years Schneider has served as a manager at KPMG AG and as an associate at Lehman Brothers.

Prior to these roles he served as a consultant at Ernst & Young, where he participated in numerous real estate transactions. Some of the deals Schneider was part of included the sale of Dresdner Bank’s real estate portfolio to Fortress Investment Group, in a €2bn transaction.

Schneider holds a Master of Business Administration and a Doctor of Economics from the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, an MSc in Real Estate Development from Columbia University and an MDes in Real Estate Investment from Harvard University.
