Pemberton appoints Scott Hamilton as Managing Director, North America


Pemberton, a leading European private credit asset manager, backed by UK insurer Legal & General Group PLC, today announced the latest step in its strategic expansion into the US and Canadian market with the appointment of Scott Hamilton, to the newly created role of Managing Director for North American Business Development.

Scott will lead institutional client coverage and consultant relations for Pemberton’s European private debt strategies in the US and Canada.

Scott brings 19 years of experience of client coverage and structuring solutions across a range of alternative credit opportunities, most recently as Managing Director, Institutional Distribution, at Alcentra. He previously held senior roles at Bank of New York Mellon and Thomas Weisel Asset Management and earned a BA in Interdisciplinary Economics, Political Science and Business from the University of California, Berkeley.

Pemberton has grown its assets under management to c. $10 billion in 2020, providing global investors, including public pensions, endowment plans, insurance companies and family offices access to its sponsored and non-sponsored direct lending investments for growth companies across Europe.

Scott brings invaluable experience in North American distribution, significant expertise in this asset class and a clear understanding of investors’ allocation needs. His appointment is a critical step in Pemberton’s plan to further develop its relationship with US and Canadian investors with an increased local presence to better serve their needs.

It’s exciting to be joining Pemberton at this inflection point in the European direct lending market. With its highly experienced team, platform scale and dual-track credit process, Pemberton has come through this economic downturn on a strong footing, and as a leading provider of corporate debt solutions across Europe. I’m honored for the opportunity and greatly look forward to comprehensively bringing Pemberton’s dynamic offerings to the US Institutional limited partner (LP) and consultant community.
