His ability to read broad macro trends and translate them into specific and targeted investment strategies is ideally suited for our investment model. His skills will further augment our strong capability to develop investment themes and identify niche sub sectors in Europe where growth can drive returns.”
David says: “I am excited to be joining the Palamon team. I have been impressed by the firm’s ability to generate high quality deal flow through its proprietary, thesis-based investment model. I was drawn to the firm’s impressive track record of developing macro investment themes and successfully using them to create market leading companies. I look forward to working with the team on these investment themes to generate robust returns in the current market environment.”
