Numis appoints new Head of Operations & bolsters Growth Capital Solutions team with new hires.
LONDON, 07 DECEMBER 2021 – Numis, the independent investment bank, has today announced several new hires to its Growth Capital Solutions team, within the Investment Banking division and appoints a new Head of Operations.
Numis’ Growth Capital Solutions team supports a broad range of innovative, high-growth private companies, through primary and secondary capital raisings, strategic and M&A advice.
The new hires reflect the continued success of the Growth Capital Solutions offering, which has broadened its international network of leading technology disruptors and global investors. In the past 12 months, Numis has raised more than $4billion for the likes of Klarna, Cazoo and Getir, with an average valuation uplift of 2.3 times as institutions continue to increase allocations to private capital. This is partly due to greater comfort in investing in illiquid, longer-term assets and attractive companies remaining private for longer.
The new appointments include:
This comes following the recent appointment of Dr. Ash Patel, Managing Director, who joined the GCS team earlier this year to focus on the healthcare sector.
All three report into David Kelnar, head of Growth Capital Solutions at Numis.
“We continue to see positive momentum behind our Growth Capital Solutions offering, with disruptive, high-growth private companies representing some of the most exciting investment opportunities around today. At the same time, institutional investors continue to express appetite to increase allocations to the sector. Matt, Gbolahan and Rachel will play a key role in ensuring we remain well positioned to leverage this trend in global capital markets, and we’re delighted to welcome them to the growing team.”
“We are deeply proud of our leading position within the UK market and as we continue to pursue client-led internationalisation it is critical that we have best in class talent to support us. Tiina’s appointment, her far reaching experience and proven track record coordinating global projects makes her a perfect fit for us as we look to build on our recent momentum.”
