Senior hire will support Rothschild & Co’s Private Capital business with the origination and execution of GP led transactions, particularly continuation vehicles

Rothschild & Co is pleased to announce the appointment of Wouter Moerel as a Senior Adviser. Based in Amsterdam, Mr Moerel will provide advice to clients and will support Rothschild & Co’s Private Capital business with the origination and execution of GP led transactions, particularly continuation vehicles.

Mr Moerel has 30 years’ experience in private markets, most recently as co-founder and former Head of Secondaries at AlpInvest, Carlyle’s dedicated primary fund, co-investment and secondaries platform. Prior to that, he worked as a Principal in Carlyle’s European buy-out business, focusing on TMT investments.

Commenting on the appointment, Chris Hawley, Global Head of Private Capital at Rothschild & Co, said: “The onboarding of Mr Moerel is part of Rothschild & Co’s ongoing investment into private capital markets advisory, and follows on from the launch of our GP Solutions business almost three years ago with the appointment of Andrei Brougham and Alvaro Rosado. Their GP Solutions team has quickly risen to prominence in Europe, where last year alone they advised on €2bn of GP-led deal volume, of an estimated total market of around €10bn.”

“Our GP clients are dealing with so much more complexity when making decisions about how to fund, hold and monetise their portfolio companies. This fuels the demand for quality advice that can speak to both traditional exit routes as well as the newer alternatives. We provide strategic advice on GP-led deals like continuation vehicles and our clients benefit substantially from our broader Global Advisory offering, including in-depth industry specific knowledge which is often not available in the secondaries advisory market,” said Andrei Brougham, Head of GP Solutions at Rothschild & Co.
