Hamilton Lane expands presence in Europe

RELATED TOPICS​

Hamilton Lane has strengthened its team in Europe, adding three senior individuals in response to a year of growth across its European client base, service lines and product offerings.

 
The appointments come as the firm continues to expand its footprint across Europe, with a substantial increase in its overall European client base in 2016.
 
Client relationships more than doubled in Switzerland as well as in Germany, a market in which the firm has plans for further expansion.
 
Hamilton Lane also added major clients last year in Italy and Finland. Joining the firm’s long-standing European client base is a variety of limited partners, including endowments, insurance companies, public pensions and financial institutions.
 
Mario Giannini (pictured), CEO of Hamilton Lane, says: “Hamilton Lane was founded more than 25 years ago with the mission of enriching the lives and safeguarding the futures of our clients around the world. We accomplish this by seeking to achieve consistent performance in a long-term asset class and by providing our global clientele with unique and data-driven private markets insight enhanced by our regional perspectives and local-market access.”
 
Carolin Blank has joined the team as a principal on the European-based relationship management team. She comes to the firm from Alvarez & Marsal Europe, where most recently she served as a senior director of relationship management – private equity. In this role, she created and managed a key accounts programme and led the PE relationship management programme.
 
Ahmed Khalil joins as a vice president, also on the relationship management team. Prior to Hamilton Lane, he was a vice president at BlackRock Private Equity Partners, and before that was a lawyer at Clifford Chance on the energy and infrastructure finance team. He began his career at Standard Chartered Bank in London.
 
Lali Sichinava is a vice president on the business development team, covering the UK market. She joins from Neuberger Berman where she was on the UK institutional sales team, and before that held a number of positions at BNP Paribas in both the US and UK.
 
“Europe has long been a key market for Hamilton Lane, and we are thrilled by the meaningful growth here of late,” says Jim Strang, managing director and head of Europe at Hamilton Lane. “We’re focused on providing unique, customised access to the private markets plus the excellent level of service that our clients expect and deserve. By strengthening our team through the appointments of Carolin, Ahmed and Lali, we believe we are well-positioned to continue to do so.”
