CapGen appoints new investment director and celebrates USD1bn rise in AUM


Capital Generation Partners (CapGen) has appointed Dipankar Shewaram as Investment Director. Shewaram was a Partner at BlueBay Asset Management, and oversaw USD25 billion of assets at Western Asset Management.  

CapGen has increased AUM by USD1 billion since January 2020, through both new client wins and investment performance, to USD3.7 billion. This represents a 38 per cent rise in assets, all through the Covid-19 period.  
CapGen recently won the PAM Award for Client Service Quality – UHNW, for the third year running. In May 2021 CapGen completed a full rebrand, launched a new website, and built, designed and moved into a new office in Berkeley Square.  
Managing Partner Khaled Said comments: “I’m thrilled to have Dip join us at such an exciting time for the business. He is a highly experienced investor with invaluable industry knowledge, and will be a great asset to our clients as he helps them make the most of the investment capabilities here at CapGen. Speaking as a client of the firm myself, it’s great to see CapGen’s growth helping it to invest in talented people with a commitment to providing outstanding client service.”  
CEO Ian Barnard adds: “Growth is exciting, but it’s also what our clients expect and deserve; it’s what enables us to keep attracting talented individuals and investing ever more deeply in the service that we provide. I’m delighted to have welcomed so many new clients through our doors – at least virtually – over the past 12 months, and greatly look forward to welcoming them to our new offices.”  
Shewaram has extensive and senior experience of both managing money and working with clients as a Partner at BlueBay Asset Management, as well as at large global asset managers, most notably Western Asset Management, where he was responsible for over USD25 billion of assets. He is also a member of the Investment Committee at Westminster School and a Guest Lecturer on the Strategic Investment Management Executive Education programme at London 2 Business School. Shewaram has a first-class degree in Economics from University College London, and a Masters in Finance and Economics from the London School of Economics. He is also a CFA charterholder.
