Investec makes new appointments in its Growth & Leveraged Finance team
London, 27 April 2021
Investec has announced the appointment of Megan Sachs as Assistant PM for Investec's Private Debt Fund I, with responsibility for co-ordination and management of the Fund, alongside her existing role in the Growth & Leveraged Finance team. The inaugural Investec Private Debt Fund was closed in December 2020 and is currently actively investing in European private debt solutions.
Megan's new role comes as Investec announces four more additions to its Growth & Leveraged Finance team: Finyin Inuayo, Rebecca Moss, Jack Moore and Lucian Purvis. They will focus on providing direct lending solutions to Investec's private equity clients and their portfolio companies.
The appointments follow the hire of Matthew Skingle, who joined Investec from HSBC in December 2020.
Callum Bell, who leads Investec's Growth & Leveraged Finance team and co-heads Investec's Private Equity Client group, commented:
These new appointments highlight a real depth of talent across Investec that we are able to tap into, by filling roles with exceptional candidates. They also reflect our continued commitment to being a leader in diversity within the financial markets, to drive performance and long-term franchise value. It also shows the momentum we are building, expanding our team a few short months after announcing the first close on our inaugural debt fund. I wish Megan, Finyin, Rebecca, Jack and Lucian all the best in their new roles.
