In a statement, Simmons’ asset management and investment funds head Colin Leaver said: “David has an excellent reputation in the market and will help us build our offering in closed-ended private funds.”
The hire comes as Simmons has added asset management and investment funds to its list of core sectors, following the creation of its latest three-year business plan (28 March 2012). Under the new plan, Simmons will continue to focus on its list of core sectors - energy and infrastructure, life sciences, TMT, financial services and now investment funds – while putting extra emphasis on partner performance.
The firm has also announced plans to open a low-cost base in Bristol (3 April 2012).
