Capital Dynamics announced the appointment of Andrea Mazzaferro as head of primaries, Europe. Mazzaferro is taking over from Mark Drugan, who is retiring after 34 years at Capital Dynamics.
As head of primaries in Europe, Mazzaferro will lead European investments in mid-market funds within the buyout, specialist, turnaround and growth sectors. He will work alongside fellow regional heads of the firm’s primaries strategy: Helen Lais for the US and Manjia Guan for Asia.
Before joining Capital Dynamics in 2018, Mazzaferro was the chief investment officer at Advanced Capital SGR in Milan. At Capital Dynamics, he has served as a senior director and as a managing director.
“Our platform’s specialised investment approach is poised to capitalise on the opportunity of the European private equity mid-market, especially during periods of market dislocation,” said Mazzaferro. “With continued volatility on the horizon, I look forward to working with Helen, Manjia and the rest of our team to identify attractive opportunities and deliver value for our clients.”
Capital Dynamics is a private asset management firm headquartered in Zug, Switzerland. The firm has more than $14 billion in assets under management and advisement.
