Investec appoints UK mid-market deal originator to its Corporate & Acquisition Finance team

Tom Burgess joins from HSBC mid-market sponsors team to support Investec’s pan-European deal origination

Investec Specialist Bank (“Investec”) today announced the appointment of Tom Burgess to its Corporate & Acquisition Finance team. Based in the team’s London office, Tom will play a key role in the origination and execution of private debt solutions for clients across Europe, focusing on non-sponsor deals. Tom is the second appointment to the team in as many months, following the appointment of Galina Markova from SMBC in June, as Investec strengthens its leveraged finance and private debt origination capabilities.

 

At Investec, Tom will work to build Investec’s direct-to-corporate offering. He brings over 10 years of deal experience and joins Investec from HSBC where he spent four years growing the bank’s middle market financial sponsors business across a wide range of sectors and jurisdictions. Prior to this, he worked at Rabobank where he structured large-cap sponsor backed transactions in the European market.

 

Callum Bell, Head of Corporate and Acquisition Finance at Investec, commented: “From a standing start just over 5 years ago, Investec has built a very strong European debt finance business focused on providing innovative solutions to our client base.  We see non-sponsor deals as a growth area for Investec, and the addition of an experienced dealmaker like Tom reflects our ambitions as we support both existing and new clients with customised debt solutions to help them reach their potential.”

 

Since its inception in 2012, Investec Corporate & Acquisition Finance has grown to become a 15-strong team providing a range of financing solutions to support its private equity and corporate clients’ ambitions for growth across Europe. Investec originates and structures over £1.0bn of debt finance each year across more than 50 mid-market transactions.

 

As well as Galina and Tom’s appointments this year, Investec also appointed Connor McMahon and Megan Chavkin to its Corporate and Acquisition Finance team in 2017.
