Future Capital Partners Beefs Up Business Development Team

Mar 15 2010 | 10:37am ET

Future Capital Partners has added another new member to its business development team.

The £6 billion U.K.-based alternative investment boutique has tapped Esther Lewis to join the firm’s marketing team. Lewis is the latest in a string of new additions to the firm over the last quarter. She will report to Piers Denne, recently hired to take on an expanded head of sales and marketing role.

The team will drive the marketing campaign for Future Capital Partner’s range of investment products, including the recently launched Future Fuels—an investment partnership that will fund and build a renewable transport fuel plant in the North of England. The firm expects the project to yield returns of over 30% per annum over a five to seven year period.

Lewis joins Future Capital Partners from Unicorn Investments where she was manager of business development.  At Unicorn, she was responsible for business development and client relationships of the Unicorn Fund of Fund in the UK, Netherlands, Spain and Gibraltar.

“Bringing Esther in to join our rapidly growing business development team is further indication of FCP’s expansive growth plan,” said Denne. “Esther’s experience in the alternative investment and private wealth arenas give her an ideal background to market our products to an audience of sophisticated, high net worth investors.

Future Capital Partners specialises in alternative investments such as renewable energy, international property, healthcare, and media and entertainment. The firm has completed transactions and made investments worth in excess of £6 billion since 2000 and has executed over 500 asset finance transactions
