The businesses represented by HQ Capital together have approximately USD12 billion in assets under management.
 
“I am delighted to join HQ Capital, the newest part of the Harald Quandt Family’s exceptional group of alternative investment firms,” Pierce says. “I have known representatives of the Harald Quandt Family for many years and hold them in very high regard.”
