DeAWM makes two senior appointments to private equity & private markets team


Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management (DeAWM) has added two senior professionals to its private equity & private markets business as it continues to expand the range of alternative investment solutions it offers clients.

Claudio Siniscalco joins as global co-head of co-investments, a newly created role. In this capacity, he will be responsible for sourcing and executing co-investment opportunities for discretionary and non-discretionary private equity mandates, along with fellow co-head Francesco Rigamonti.
Siniscalco will also spearhead DeAWM’s platform for private investments in wealth management, servicing ultra high net worth and key clients. Siniscalco, a managing director, is based in London and reports to Carlo Pirzio-Biroli, global head of private equity.
Siniscalco was most recently with HarbourVest Partners, where he was a principal and co-head of the London direct investment team, with responsibility for sourcing, executing and monitoring co-investments in private equity in EMEA. Siniscalco’s prior experience includes positions at Audley Capital, Investcorp and Hicks Muse in London.
Jason Sambanju joins as head of Asia secondaries, also a newly created role. Sambanju is responsible for sourcing and executing secondary private equity investment opportunities across the Asia region. A director, Sambanju is based in Hong Kong and also reports to Pirzio-Biroli.
Sambanju was previously co-head of Asia for Paul Capital, where he established and managed the firm's Hong Kong office and was responsible for sourcing, executing and monitoring private equity secondary deals across Asia. Prior to Paul Capital, Sambanju worked at Symphony Capital and Deutsche Bank in New York.
Pirzio-Biroli says: "Claudio and Jason’s appointment enables us to build on the considerable momentum already achieved in our secondary business and to expand our ability to offer co-investment opportunities to clients within our private equity business, as well as in other private markets."
