PGIM Real Estate Promotes Jamie Shen to Lead Agriculture Debt and Equity

PGIM Real Estate has promoted Jamie Shen to become head of agriculture. Shen is currently CIO and head of PGIM Real Estate’s agriculture equity business.

Upon her appointment, Shen aims to leverage PGIM Real Estate’s expertise across agriculture debt and equity to drive client growth and expand a combined debt and equity agriculture platform.

Since joining in 2017, Shen has been instrumental in the build-out of PGIM Real Estate’s agriculture investment platform, which has grown from $3.5 billion 10 years ago to $10.5 billion today.

Bryan McDonnell, head of U.S. debt and agriculture and chair of global debt, said, “We’ve built our agriculture business in the U.S. over the last 34 years by establishing a national platform of investment teams with deep local knowledge and relationships. I am pleased that we have someone of Jamie’s caliber leading this business.”
