ICG Launches North American PE Strategy

Intermediate Capital Group (ICG) has hired Alan Jones as a senior managing director with responsibility for building a private equity business in North America.

Mr. Jones has more than three decades of private equity experience and joins ICG after a 25-year career at Morgan Stanley where he served most recently as vice-chairman of private credit and equity.

He will be based at ICG’s office in New York where ICG has a team of 57 people currently investing in private debt, strategic equity and credit fund strategies.
