Advent Capital Management has appointed Robert Gourlay as managing director and head of European business development.
Gourlay is based in Advent’s London office and reports to chief operating officer Kris Haber.
“Robert has a broad professional background well suited to driving Advent’s expanding international presence,” says Haber. “His collaborative approach to working both with investors and consultants over the past 20 years has established Robert as a business development leader. We welcome Robert’s experience and look forward to his contributions to the firm.”
For nearly 10 years, Gourlay led business development at RWC Partners (formerly MPC Investors), during which assets grew from USD500 million to USD9 billion under management. He has successfully raised assets for hedge fund and UCITS fund structures.
“In the rapidly developing alternative investments industry, there is a demand for the in-depth industry knowledge and global exposure that Advent Capital offers,” says Gourlay. “I am looking forward to working with our global clients on new business opportunities.”
