“The US private equity market is very dynamic and will continue to present opportunities for businesses well placed to capitalize upon them. While the current environment is rather unsettled, periods following economic slowdown have historically presented great opportunities. I am confident that the strength of the SL Capital Partners franchise along with the talent we have assembled in the US team will position us to seize upon this growth as the alternative asset markets continue to institutionalize.

“During his time at Allianz Jamie was responsible for all aspects of a $500 million annual private equity programme and also sat on the global private equity investment committee. His international experience should also help in our new integrated investment approach. Together with Eric Albertson, he will develop our US private equity strategy and play a key role in growing and promoting our global private equity business.
