ANZ renews and expands Jones Lang LaSalle Property Services Contract

New agreement forms basis for global property portfolio services

SYDNEY, 1 MARCH 2010 - Jones Lang LaSalle announced today it had signed an agreement for the provision of global property services to ANZ. The financial terms of the agreement remain confidential.

The agreement maintains the existing Australian outsourcing relationship and forms the basis for the expansion of those services globally where ANZ operate, including London, New York and throughout Asia Pacific.

ANZ’s global real estate portfolio includes over 1600 properties and over 2000 ATM’s located in Australia, New Zealand, the Pacific Islands, Asia, Europe and America.

The contract positions Jones Lang LaSalle to provide integrated facilities management, real estate and leasing services, project management, specialised sustainability services and advisory services.

John Forrest, Asia Pacific CEO, Corporate Solutions for Jones Lang LaSalle, said that property is increasingly a workplace enabler and ANZ is at the forefront of driving value from its property portfolio.

“The agreement builds on and formalises the strong relationship we have with ANZ in Australia, which has been built up over a number of years. It also consolidates Jones Lang LaSalle’s position as a dominant property advisor to large institutions in Australia, Asia-Pacific and globally,” Mr Forrest said.

Chris Hunt, Head of Integrated Facilities Management (IFM) for Australia and New Zealand for Jones Lang LaSalle, said, “This expanded relationship also reflects the strength of Jones Lang LaSalle’s expertise in the financial services sector.

“Our global Banking Industry Group provides specialist advice to the financial services sector globally, and we will use both our global and local expertise to meet ANZ’s outsourced corporate real estate needs,” Mr Hunt said.
