Actis appoints global head of investor solutions group

Actis, a UK-based private investment firm focused on sustainable infrastructure, has appointed Neda Vakilian as head of its Investor Solutions Group (ISG), which was previously known as the Investor Development Group.

Vakilian is based in London and will be responsible for leading Actis’ capital raising initiatives and strategic investor programs. She will assume the role from Neil Brown, who is stepping back within Actis to focus on working directly with investors. 

During her near 20-year career, Vakilian has worked across private capital markets, business development, and fundraising. Before joining Actis, she was co-head of capital solutions and investor relations for Amber Infrastructure. Prior to this, Vakilian worked at Macquarie Capital and the Green Investment Bank (now the Green Investment Group) where she was responsible for raising what was, at the time, the largest renewables fund in Europe. She began her career as a solicitor, working at Clifford Chance and SJ Berwin in the private equity, fund formation teams.
