Grosvenor Fund Management creates global capital markets role


In a move to grow its business internationally and in the US, Grosvenor Fund Management (GFM) is making two changes to its leadership structure, effective immediately.

GFM is creating the new role of global head of capital markets, leading a central capital raising team. 
Alexia Gottschalch, who has served as chief executive officer of GFM’s Philadelphia-based US operation, has been appointed to this post and remains on the GFM board. Reporting directly to GFM’s global chief executive James Raynor, Gottschalch will be responsible for GFM’s capital raising strategy in order to spearhead GFM’s global growth.  She will be recruiting to increase the capacity of the existing capital markets team.  
Gottschalch’s appointment creates a vacancy in the post of chief executive officer of GFM’s US operation.  Bruce Ambler, who has been chief operating officer for GFM in the US since February 2013, is taking on this role. In his new role, Ambler also will report directly to Raynor.
Raynor says: “With clients in many jurisdictions, we need a global approach to capital-raising and it needs to be championed at a senior level.  I’m delighted that we can fill this important new post by promoting from within: Alexia has just the background we need.  Bruce already knows the US operation well and, with his skills and experience, he is the ideal person to move into this wider role.”
Both Gottschalch and Ambler will continue to be based at GFM’s Philadelphia office.
