AnaCap Financial Partners has promoted partners Nassim Cherchali and Tassilo Arnhold to co-managing partners.
They will continue to head the private equity investment strategy while also focusing on the continued build-out and growth of the AnaCap private equity franchise overall.
Cherchali and Arnhold joined the firm in 2008 and in 2015, respectively. Cherchali focused on setting the firm’s private equity presence in France, Iberia and the UK while Arnhold headed the franchise build-out in Germany and the broader DACH region, Nordics as well as the UK.
The pair have led 15 platform deals and more than 50 bolt-ons with a track record of 3.4x MM and 57 percent IRR gross realised returns since 2016.
Further, as part of the restructuring, Joe Giannamore, CEO and chief investment officer, has now become the group executive chairman.
“This partial restructure comes at what is an exciting time for the firm as we adopt a refined focus on private equity strategy, following the recent decoupling from our credit-based operations,” said Giannamore. “This highly specialised approach is also consistent with AnaCap’s ethos of promoting ambitious, dedicated and talented individuals from within.”
AnaCap is a private equity firm specialising in mid-market companies across the financial, technological, and related business services sectors. The firm, headquartered in London, has raised €2.7 billion in gross assets under management since 2005 and completed over 76 investments across 16 European jurisdictions.
