Maven appoints Alan Robertson as investment manager
Maven Capital Partners has appointed Alan Robertson as investment manager.
He will work alongside David Milroy in Maven’s Central Scotland team, and will be based out of the Edinburgh office.
Robertson (pictured) will focus on sourcing and executing new investment opportunities for the Scottish Loan Fund (SLF) as well as supporting new private equity transactions in Scotland.
The SLF, which is managed by Maven, was established by the Scottish Investment Bank to address the demand for finance from eligible SMEs, and has a focus on supporting growth and export businesses that have an established presence in Scotland.
Robertson joins from Quayle Munro, where he helped establish a debt advisory and corporate finance business in Scotland. Prior to this he spent seven years with RBS, predominantly working in the Aberdeen structured finance team financing mid-market private equity transactions. He latterly had responsibility for a portfolio of large corporate and leveraged clients.
Robertson says: “I am delighted to have joined Maven and look forward to increasing our presence on the ground in Edinburgh and helping support local east coast businesses realise their potential through investment from Maven and the SLF.”
Andrew Craig, fund manager for the SLF and partner at Maven, says: “We are pleased to welcome Alan to the team at Maven. The SLF has now committed over GBP15m to ambitious Scottish SMEs in just over a year and the appointment of an experienced investment manager will help us maintain that momentum. Alan will play an important role in supporting the SLF and expanding Maven’s business as a whole.”
