Tikehau Capital appoints new head of Asia, Australia, and New Zealand

Tikehau Capital, an alternative asset management and investment group, has appointed Neil Parekh as head of Asia, Australia, and New Zealand.

In his new role, Parekh will be responsible for deepening investment capabilities and growing the business of Tikehau Capital in Asia, Australia, and New Zealand, working alongside the existing management team of the firm in Asia. Parekh will be joining Tikehau Capital at the end of the second quarter, as a partner, after completing his tenure with National Australia Bank as general manager of Asia where he was responsible for all business, regulatory, and governance matters for the bank’s Asian business. He benefits from more than 30 years of global experience in the financial services industry in the Asia Pacific, US and Europe.

Over last few years, Tikehau Capital has established and developed its presence and network across Asia, with the support of prime partners and shareholders. The group has thus experienced a rapid expansion since the opening of its Singapore office in 2014, followed by the opening of offices in Seoul in 2017, and Tokyo in 2019.

Bruno de Pampelonne, Chairman of Tikehau Investment Management, says: “We are delighted to have Neil join our team. With a remarkable career spanning over 30 years, he has become a senior leader of the business and broader community in the Asia-Pacific region. His deep knowledge of the region and his extensive network will be invaluable to Tikehau Capital’s business in Asia, Australia and New Zealand and help to further strengthen the firm’s footprint in the region.”
