AnaCap promotes Sulger and Cesario to partner

AnaCap Financial Partners has promoted Justin Sulger and Fabrizio Cesario, Head of Credit Opportunities and Mergers & Acquisitions respectively, to Partner.

Justin joined AnaCap in July 2006, shortly after inception, as part of the Business Services team, before building out the firm’s Risk & Liability Management function and launching AnaCap’s credit investment strategy. Fabrizio joined the firm in May 2010 and has more than 18 years of experience, advising leading European financial institutions and executing M&A transactions on both the buy and sell side.

Joe Giannamore, Co-Managing Partner at AnaCap, says: “Justin and Fabrizio have both made demonstrable contributions to the firm since joining, and have earned a warm welcome into the partnership. Under their leadership, credit and M&A have become an increasingly vital component of our overall investment
strategy, expanding our reputation and offering focus to the financial services industry providing AnaCap greater bandwidth and access to transactions from an ever growing network that competitors simply do not see or cannot address.”

Sulger says: “Our strategy is to invest in credit opportunities across Europe, leveraging AnaCap's strong and established origination network and extensive credit management expertise. We adopt a highly analytical approach towards valuation, due diligence and active asset management, leveraging AnaCap’s best-in-class, in-house capabilities.”

Cesario says: “Since its foundation in 2005, AnaCap has emerged as a leading investor in the European financial services sector, deploying over EUR720 million in multiple jurisdictions. Our successful track record as an operationally engaged and long-term supportive investor in complex transactions has allowed us to become a credible counter party for financial institutions and regulators across Europe, providing effective solutions to the significant challenges facing the industry.

“It is thanks to this expertise and credibility that we are today able to source a large number of proprietary opportunities, attracting strong management teams wishing to partner with us in growing successful businesses.”

Before joining AnaCap last year, Cesario was Managing Director in the Financial Institutions Group at Lazard, having previously held a senior role in the Financial Institutions Group at Lehman Brothers. He began his career at Rothschild Italia.

Prior to joining AnaCap, Sulger was a Vice President in Morgan Stanley’s Securitised Products Group in London, focused on debt structuring and principal finance. He began his career in Fixed Income at Goldman Sachs in New York, before relocating to London. Sulger has also served as a Managing Director of Lunar Group, a venture capital investor in China.
