Neil Parekh will join Tikehau Capital in Singapore as a partner and head of Asia, Australia and New Zealand, a spokeswoman for the boutique private markets manager confirmed.
The position is new. Mr. Parekh will share leadership of the firm's business in Asia with Jean-Baptiste Feat, co-head of Asia. Both executives report to Bruno de Pampelonne, CEO of Tikehau Investment Management, the spokeswoman said.
Mr. Parekh will join the firm in late June once he has completed his tenure as National Australia Bank's Singapore-based general manager-Asia, according to a Tikehau news release. A spokeswoman for National Australia Bank said a formal decision has yet to be made on a replacement.
Tikehau Capital has €25.8 billion ($28 billion) in assets under management, according to its website.
