Commenting on the news, Roger Pim, Managing Partner said:
"SL Capital Partners has experienced a period of significant growth and positive change this year, as we continue to drive forward new investment programmes in private equity funds, co-investments and secondary opportunities, whilst further strengthening our direct infrastructure investment capabilities.
"It is crucial that we support this growth with a highly effective distribution team who can provide clients with relevant solutions as they develop their own alternative investment strategies. I am confident both Robert and Alan will be instrumental in helping to build on our recent successes."
