Deloitte fund raising appts

Deloitte has expanded its recently launched private equity fund placement service with the appointment of James Coleman from UBS as director.

At UBS Coleman worked on transactions raising a total of $14.8bn from investors in private equity funds, including mandates for 3i Eurofund IV, Blackstone Capital Partners IV, Candover 2001and TVM V.

Chris Ward, head of corporate finance advisory at Deloitte, said: “Since we launched our fund raising service in August, we have received a huge level of interest from private equity houses who feel they are not served by the current market players. James brings exceptional experience of the placement business and an impressive network of potential investor contacts.”
