M&G Investments has appointed Matthew O’Sullivan as the head of Asia Pacific origination. He is tasked with building a credit and alternatives team in Singapore.
Previously based in London, O’Sullivan will relocate to Singapore as part of the move. In a statement, M&G sad the team “will originate investment opportunities in the Asia Pacific region”, enabling the firm to diversify its assets and expand its investment universe.
O’Sullivan will establish a team “to originate and analyse investment opportunities”. He will report to Alex Seddon, co-head of private credit based in London.
O’Sullivan will be joined by Gareth Anderson, associate director. Anderson has eight years of experience originating and investing in credit and has spent the last three working in Singapore.
“Private assets are ever-evolving and establishing a regional presence will put us closer to the management of the companies we are lending to, originators we can partner with and relationship banks in Asia Pacific,” said William Nicoll, head of institutional fixed income at M&G Investments.
