Peter Pfister has been named partner and head of Asia-Pacific for UK-based private equity and real estate manager Altius Associates.

Pfister joins Altius from Deutsche Bank's private equity business, where he also served as head of Asia Pacific. He will continue to be based in Singapore, where he's spent the last seven years. Prior to DB, he was a vice president at LGT Capital Partners in Switzerland.

In his new role, Pfister will report to Brad Young, head of investments at Altius.

Said Young in a statement: “We are very pleased to have secured Peter, an experienced and knowledgeable investment professional, with many years’ experience in global private markets to lead our Asian Investment business.  His experience in the Asian private equity sector, and his knowledge of buyout, venture and growth capital in the region made him an ideal candidate for this important role. We looked long and hard for a leader to fit our needs, and I am very gratified that we have been able to attract someone of Peter’s caliber.”

Altius Associates currently advises and manages approximately $24 billion in private equity and real assets funds for clients based across Europe, North America and Australia. It has offices in London, Richmond, VA and Singapore.
