Hedge fund and private equity veteran Stephan Wilcke has been charged with leading Britain’s toxic asset insurance program.
The former head of European financial services at Apax Partners takes the reins at the Asset Protection Agency on Monday, the U.K. Treasury said. Wilcke takes over as CEO from Jeremy Bennett, who has managed the £585 billion bailout program since its creation in January.
