In addition to managing their liquid assets through Stanhope Capital, many of the firm’s clients – prominent entrepreneurs, families and institutions –seek to invest across the spectrum of private equity (venture capital, development capital and buyouts) either through funds or through direct deals. Through its network of partners and senior advisers, including a number of prominent industry figures, the firm is ideally placed to assist them in this area.

Daniel Pinto, Founding Partner and CEO of Stanhope Capital,comments on this latest key development:

“Edward Clive and Jerome Sibony are two highly experienced professionals who will take us to the next stage of our development in the fast changing private equity landscape. Both have solid track records in delivering meaningful strategic advice and investment outcomes for clients.Their combined wealth of experience will bring a unique perspective to our business as we continue to expand. The ability to offer a sophisticated private equity solution alongside conventional asset classes in order to maximise returns is unusual and few firms are equipped to do it well.” concludes Pinto.

Stanhope Capital CIO Jonathan Bell says:
