KPMG has strengthened its UK investment management team with the appointment of Stan Chaudhry as a director.
Stan joins from Brook Bay Capital LLP, a specialist alternative asset management provider, where he held the position of Chief Operating Officer, with responsibility for all operational aspects of the firm’s business.
In his new role in KPMG’s deal advisory team, Stan will be working with the team in advising clients on all aspects of deals, from growth strategies to exits. Stan will work across the investment management sector, with a particular focus on the alternative space.
Stan has more than 10-years’ experience in asset management and hedge fund markets. He previously held senior operational and finance roles with Thames River Capital LLP, a leading alternative assets manager, where he was a partner, Chief Operating Officer (COO) and head of operational due diligence, for the hedge fund team.
Thames River Capital LLP ran over $14 billion in assets under management at its peak. More recently, he has been COO at two emerging alternative asset management firms. Prior to this, Stan spent a decade at Deloitte, working in the firm’s transaction services practice in London and New York.
Stan will be working with Richard Clarke, UK head of investment management, James Woolf, deal advisory partner, and Raj Mehta, deal advisory director at KPMG.
Richard Clarke said: “Stan is a highly experienced professional and will bring considerable insight to our deals advisory team. We anticipate growth in deals in the investment management sector. It is our ambition to continue bringing the best talent to advise our clients through an exciting time for the industry.
“Stan has a proven track record of delivering growth within the hedge fund and alternative investment sectors, and I am confident our clients will benefit from his expertise.”
Mr Chaudhry said: “The investment management sector is undergoing a period of rapid change and therefore it is essential that clients get the best advice. KPMG is best positioned to deliver this due to the depth of experience it can call on from across the firm. I look forward to working with Richard, James, Raj and the rest of the team.”
