Arrow Global Group plc ("Arrow", and together with its subsidiaries the "Group"), a leading European investor and alternative asset manager in non-performing and non-core loan portfolios and real estate assets, is pleased to announce the creation of a Clients and Capital Formation Group within its Arrow Capital Management business.
The Clients and Capital Formation Group will partner with Arrow’s clients to provide differentiated investment solutions and world-class insights from Arrow’s core areas of expertise in European non-performing and non-core debt. The Group will be responsible for setting Arrow’s Capital Formation strategy and broadening the firm’s investor set by enabling global capital pools to access the opportunities presented by the European NPL market through Arrow Capital Management.
To lead this new function, the Group has appointed Kamran Anwar as Global Head. Kamran brings a wealth of experience in financial services having spent 23 years at Citigroup in leadership roles across the Middle East, Europe and Asia covering M&A, Transaction Banking, Private Equity, Real Estate and Corporate Strategy. Most recently, Kamran spent five years in the technology world, where he worked with SS&C Technologies leading their Private Equity Services franchise in EMEA.
Kamran joins Arrow Global on 8 March 2021 and will be based in London, reporting to Zachary Lewy, Founder, Group CIO and CEO, Fund Management.
Zach Lewy, Founder, Group CIO and CEO, Fund Management, said:
“We are excited to strengthen our fund management business with a dedicated group focused on our clients and led by Kamran who brings valuable expertise and leadership to our team. His diverse international background across banking, technology and the private markets and strong relationships across the Middle East and Asia will help us broaden our franchise and engage with a global investor base. Building the Arrow Global Capital Management proposition is a strategic priority for Arrow as we transition to a capital-light, fund management model and creating a Clients and Capital Formation Group is a natural next step, in line with our objective of growing funds under management while generating attractive returns for our investors.”
Kamran Anwar said:
“I am excited to join Zach and the team to help build upon Arrow’s trajectory of success as it expands its global franchise of clients. I look forward to partnering with many of the regional capital providers to introduce significant opportunities in the European distressed market tailored through Arrow’s high value niches. Arrow’s desire to contribute to the local markets through training and development in the NPL asset class will make this journey even more compelling. I look forward to supporting the firm’s strategic vision for continued growth.”
