Private equity investor Altius Associates has appointed Joachim Suter as a partner in its EMEA investor relations team.
Suter will be based in the London office, joining the global IR team headed by Dr Eric Warner.
Suter joins Altius having been senior vice president private placement for Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets. He focused on Switzerland, Italy and Luxembourg, responsible for primary, secondary funds and direct investments in the region.
Prior to this he had a business development focus on German institutional clients. Previously he held positions at PIMCO Europe, UBS Asset Management and Credit Suisse First Boston.
Dr Warner said, “We are delighted to have secured Joachim to strengthen our European Investor Relations team. His background and experience in real assets and infrastructure is a real fit for our needs, given our increased push into this sector. We are seeing demand for the kind of specialist funds we are providing in this area, which calls for a more focussed and dedicated approach to the investor base.”
Altius is currently marketing a broad-based real assets fund, as well as a global private equity fund. Suter will have responsibility for marketing these funds across EMEA as well as dealing with the firm’s existing European clients, the firm said.
