Pacific Investments Names Lamb as CEO of New Multi-Asset Management Division

Nov 30 2016 | 9:54pm ET

Sir John Beckwith’s Pacific Investments has announced the launch of a new multi-asset business and hired former Deutsche Bank executive Matthew Lamb to run it. 

Lamb was named group CEO of the new division, named Pacific Asset Management, which will operate alongside the company’s existing global private equity and real estate units. The initial focus for the new division will be rolling out liquid, multi-asset vehicles aimed at individual investors, with institutional funds coming thereafter. 

Lamb comes aboard the new venture from Deutsche Asset Management, where he was global head of liquid alternative strategies. Beforehand, he was head of institutional and fund distribution in the UK and Middle East for GAM. Additional senior hires will follow in the coming months, according to the company. 

“This is something we have been planning and working towards for two years,” said Beckwith, founder of Pacific Investments Group. “We have built a robust institutional infrastructure to ensure that the new team and funds are fully fledged and ready for market.”

Pacific’s combined asset management businesses founded over the course of 20 years collectively manage $20 billion in assets. Asset management and funds launched by the company include Liontrust, Thames River Capital, River & Mercantile, Nevsky Capital and Europa Capital.

Founded by Beckwith and Mark Johnson in 1993, Pacific Investments is a multi-asset fund management group encompassing real estate, PE, traditional and absolute return strategies.
