Investec Investment Banking (Investec) has appointed Serge Rissi as a Director in the Financial Sponsor Transaction Group, reporting to Christian Hess.
Rissi has 15 years of M&A execution experience. He was most recently a Director at Quayle Munro having originally joined UBS Warburg before spending more than a decade at Hawkpoint.
Rissi’s appointment further strengthens Investec’s dedicated private equity advisory group, which focusses exclusively on Financial Sponsor M&A sell-side and buy-side transactions.
Andrew Pinder, Head of Investment Banking, says: "I am delighted to announce Serge’s appointment; Private Equity is one of Investec's core client groups and our strong multi product momentum, with three sole led financial sponsor transactions in January alone, allows us to invest further into our Financial Sponsor Transaction Group, which was created with our hire of Christian Hess in 2014."
Christian Hess, Head of the Financial Sponsor Transaction Group, says: "With his 15 year M&A execution track record, Serge is a strong complementary fit with our multi product financial sponsor offering. He combines bulge bracket experience with entrepreneurial acumen and thoughtful, considered advice."
