Pemberton appoints Nicole Gates as Deputy Chief Credit Officer


Pemberton, the independent asset management group backed by Legal & General, today announces it has strengthened its London team with the appointment of Nicole Gates as Deputy Chief Credit Officer.

Gates joins as a Partner in the firm and brings 30 years of experience in global credit markets. She will work alongside existing Chief Credit Officer, Conrad Teppema, to further develop Pemberton’s market-leading credit underwriting and risk management functions.

Prior to joining Pemberton, Gates spent ten years at GE Capital International, where she was Head of Restructuring. Her previous positions also include Managing Director in Dresdner Bank’s Institutional Restructuring Unit in London and Head of International Intensive Care Unit at Kleinwort Benson.

Nicole’s appointment reflects the emphasis Pemberton places on risk management. She brings extensive experience in the credit industry and a first class ability to understand and qualify the risks involved in potential transactions. She will be a great asset as Pemberton continues to grow and we move to launch new strategies.

I was attracted by the opportunity to utilise my many years working in credit risk, and apply this within a growing asset management business of Pemberton’s standing. I look forward to leveraging my experience at GE and Dresdner, working on performing and under-performing credits across Europe, to the benefit of Pemberton’s Institutional client base.
