Pemberton strengthens Origination team with senior hire


Pemberton, the diversified asset manager backed by one of Europe’s largest insurers, Legal & General Group PLC, today announces it has expanded its Origination team with the appointment of Eric Capp as a Partner.

Capp joins to focus on increasing and diversifying Pemberton’s relationships with London-based banks and private equity firms. He will originate lending opportunities across all of Pemberton’s strategies.

Capp brings more than 25 years of experience in credit risk management, originating and structuring high yield bonds and loans. Prior to joining Pemberton, Capp was Global Head of Debt Syndicate, Leverage Finance and High Yield Markets at RBS.

During his career, Capp ran JP Morgan’s High Yield Capital Markets business in London and also held the position of Chairman of the European High Yield Association, now a division of AFME.

Capp’s appointment is the latest in a series of senior hires at Pemberton, closely following the recent appointment of Thomas Lack as Chief Operating Officer.

One of the key strengths of our firm is the ability to source diverse, attractive credit opportunities through our pan-European platform. Eric’s excellent European network and strong origination expertise makes him the perfect candidate for this senior role.

As we seek to constantly improve and increase our on-the-ground partnerships with private equity firms and banks, Eric’s proven ability to build long-term relationships with financial institutions will accelerate our efforts.

– Thomas Duetoft, Head of Origination at Pemberton

Private debt is a key pillar in the ongoing development of the European Capital Markets. I am excited to join Pemberton as it actively seeks to provide innovative financing solutions for corporates and private equity firms in Europe.

– Eric Capp, Partner, Head of Origination & Co-Head of Direct Lending
