To find a Head of European Private Debt for a European asset manager.
To identify an individual with the right combination of experience, entrepreneurial mindset and seniority to successfully raise assets and build a team and business in a completely new area for our client.
The European private debt market is extremely competitive and consequently the competition for talent is very strong. Our client had no track record in this product line, which meant Riverhouse Partners had to use our extensive network in this area to identify the candidate with the right mindset and entrepreneurial spirit to rise to this challenge.
It was also crucial to identify a candidate with the gravitas and historical track record to convince investors, which would prove crucial in our client’s fund raising stage as well as in building a profitable business.
