Dan page to build on Apex advisory and capital raising services
Bermudian-based Apex Group Ltd, the global financial services provider, has appointed Dan Page as global head of product – advisory and capital raising solutions.
Mr Page will lead Apex’s consolidated advisory and capital raising product offering.
The company said this strategic development reinforces Apex Group’s mission to disrupt the industry through delivering frictionless, innovative and digital capital raising solutions for investors.
Based in London, Mr Page will be responsible for driving the growth of Apex Group’s advisory and capital raising services to become the largest open architecture business of its kind.
He is a senior advisory professional with more than 24 years of experience in the capital markets, focused on advising international banks, asset managers, single and multifamily offices and a broad variety of funds that manage, and invest in, alternative assets.
Most recently, Mr Page was head of asset management advisory at KPMG Ireland, focused on the development of the advisory practice serving those who manage and invest in alternative investments.
Previously, he held roles at Deutsche Bank and Goldman Sachs and he was also managing director of Swiss-based Bedrock RealTime, part of the Swiss asset management group, Bedrock.
Peter Hughes, founder and chief executive officer of Apex Group, said: “We are delighted to begin 2023 with the launch of our combined advisory and capital raising unit, spearheaded by Dan.
“By bringing our advisory and capital raising solutions together, we are simplifying the message to the market and integrating our acquired services and products under a connected offering to enhance client experience and understanding of our single-source solution.
“Dan has worked on both sides of the investor coin; as such, he is well placed to understand the pressures that both new and existing managers face throughout the full life cycle of raising and deploying capital.”
Mr Page added: “Having worked closely with Peter and his team for the last 16 years in a variety of capacities, I am excited by the opportunity to build on the existing component parts in the group to create one effective entity and approach, for the whole global alternative assets ecosystem.
“Raising capital is at the forefront of every client’s mind. Establishing ACR uniquely positions Apex Group to deliver centralised strategy and the global marketplace to its clients.
“We have both the toolkit and the ambition to deliver a truly unique advisory led solution to the global capital raising question.”
