Tullett Prebon launches primary placement business


London, New York, 12 May 2010: Tullett Prebon, one of the world’s leading inter-dealer brokers, has launched a Primary Placement business for Alternatives to raise capital for hedge funds, private equity and other alternative investment funds. Tullett Prebon’s Alternative Investments desk began over a year ago to place secondary interests in alternative funds on behalf of institutional investors.
 
Tullett Prebon will adopt a bespoke approach to the Primary Placement business by structuring individual solutions for their clients. The team aims to leverage its buy-side experience coupled with its extensive reach in the global institutional investor market to attract blue chip clients to its brand.
 
The Alternative Investment team, headed by Neil Campbell, a former Fund of Funds manager, has hired Gahtan Vahidy to drive its origination efforts. Vahidy and Campbell previously worked together at the Axiom Alternative Fund, a boutique fund of fund operations focused on natural resources strategies. Vahidy, a former strategy consultant for PricewaterhouseCoopers, also has over five years’ experience as a buy side analyst for the hedge fund sector, most recently at Erste Bank, dealing with a broad range of investors and hedge funds on a daily basis.
 
Neil Campbell, Head of Tullett Prebon’s Alternative Investments Desk, commented: "Following a very active first year of trading we are now very excited about broadening our business and leveraging our network further to support funds in their asset-raising activities. We are also delighted to welcome Gahtan to the team whose expertise will be invaluable in building up these capabilities."
