I have been particularly impressed with the firm’s track record, quality of mandates, and tenacity demonstrated by the Partner team since the global financial crises,” said Mr. Wade.
Mr. Wade has over 15 years of experience in limited partner, general partner and third-party distribution roles during his alternative investment career.
