LONDON/NEW YORK – First Avenue Partners, a leading global private placement agent and investment advisory firm, is pleased to announce the addition of Hiti Singh to the firm’s London office. She joins the firm as a senior member of the project management team.
Ms. Singh has over 14 years of alternative assets experience. Prior to joining First Avenue, she served as a Portfolio Director at CDC Group, where she was responsible for the Asian private equity funds division.
Ms. Singh managed a portfolio of $2 billion in over 60 private equity funds in China, South East Asia and India and led commitments exceeding $750 million to various strategies including, infrastructure, real estate, agribusiness, generalist private equity, venture capital and microfinance. Before joining CDC, she was a Senior Manager in the Microfinance Institutions Group at Morgan Stanley and a Consultant at Accenture.
“I am very excited to join such a dynamic team at First Avenue and for the opportunity to work with a fast growing firm that has made incredible strides in the world of private credit and private equity, real assets and real estate,” commented Ms. Singh. “With my previous role as an institutional investor, I hope to contribute to the firm’s advisory business both with GPs and LPs across the board. In addition, given my emerging markets fund‐of‐funds investment experience, I am keen to assist in expanding the firm’s footprint in the emerging markets, especially as large institutional investors increase their risk appetite for Africa and Asia.”
“Hiti represents another strong, senior addition to our global project management capabilities. Her buy‐side background has allowed her to develop strong networks with GPs and LPs globally, particularly in the emerging markets. Her extensive experience helping structure offerings and governance practices will be particularly value‐additive to our clients. We are thrilled to have her on board,” commented Tavneet Bakshi, Global Head of Project Management and Due Diligence.
