UFG Asset Management has appointed Robert Sasson as senior managing partner of UFG Private Equity.

Sasson will co-head UFG’s private equity business together with Charles Ryan (pictured), chairman of UFG Asset Management.

Prior to joining UFG, Sasson worked with a US hedge fund on private equity transactions in Russia and Ukraine. Before that, he served as the head of the St. Petersburg office of the European Bank of Reconstruction and Development.

"We are excited that Robert Sasson will co-head the UFG private equity team. He brings to UFG Asset Management over 19 years of invaluable Russia and finance experience and an impressive track record, including 15 years working on private equity transactions,’ says Ryan. ‘At the time, when Russia offers highly attractive private equity investment opportunities to seasoned investors, the credibility and hands-on expertise that Robert adds to UFG will enhance our ability to generate proprietary deal flow and maximize returns to our investors.’

UFG Asset Management provides asset management and investment advisory services for both onshore and offshore institutional and private investors wishing to invest in the capital markets of the Russian Federation and the CIS. It was founded in 1996 by Ryan and the late Boris Fedorov, the founding partners of Russia’s investment bank United Financial Group. In 2003, UFG sold the investment banking business to Deutsche Bank, and separated UFG AM from UFG’s investment banking activities.
