Private Advisors Hires Three Managing Directors

Apr 21 2008 | 3:27pm ET

Private Advisors has added three managing directors to its London office. The $3.8 billion alternative investments firm, which opened its U.K. office in July, announced the hires of Matthew Baker, Jennifer Buckley and Rickard Fischerstrom.

Baker comes to Private Advisors from ATP Private Equity Partners—whose former CEO, Jens Bisgaard-Frantzen, now heads Private Advisors UK—where he oversaw all legal and tax affairs. In his new role, Baker is responsible for private equity manager selection and monitoring, and due diligence, as well as legal and tax issues.

Buckley, who joins from GE Equity, will be responsible for private equity manager sourcing, due diligence and monitoring, as well as portfolio construction. Fischerstrom most recently worked at Lazard Asset Management heading European business development and investor relations. He’ll work in a similar role at Private Advisors.

“The current challenging market conditions compliment Private Advisors’ longstanding focus on small- and middle-market partnerships,” Bisgaard-Frantzen said. “This space requires an extremely rigorous and thorough approach to manager sourcing and selection, and Matthew and Jennifer bring the experience and skills required to implement this strategy on a global basis for Private Advisors and its investors.”
