ICG, the alternative asset manager specialist, is aiming to expand its business further into managing investments for the insurance and reinsurance industry.
The company has announced three new hires to support business growth and development across Europe.
Rob Reynolds joins as European Head of Insurance Coverage, Alex Dewey joins as Head of European Real Estate Fundraising and Anahita Firouzbakht joins as Principal, focusing on consultant relations.
Reynolds will be responsible for driving business growth and supporting clients across the insurance space. He comes from Apollo Global Management where, since 2017, he oversaw growth of their third-party insurance related business across Europe.
Dewey will be responsible for driving growth across ICG’s real estate franchise, primarily through working alongside leading European real estate allocators. He joins with over 15 years of experience, having most recently worked at CBRE as a Senior Director in their European Equity Placement team.
Firouzbakht has joined ICG’s UK marketing and client relations team, focusing on consultant coverage, reflecting the growing importance of consultants in the marketplace. Previously, Firouzbakht spent over five years at BlueBay Asset Management as Director in the Consultant Relations team, leading their Global and UK coverage.
Andreas Mondovits, Global Head of Marketing and Client Relations, said: “I am delighted to welcome Rob, Alex and Anahita to our global Marketing and Client Relations teams. Collectively, they will enhance our expertise across real estate, insurance and consultant relations, three key areas of focus as we continue to execute on our global growth strategy.”
