“The financial services markets I work across are growing rapidly, evolving constantly and present myriad opportunities. Helping entrepreneurial management teams thrive in this environment is personally very satisfying.”

Nick plays a leading role in the global sourcing, execution and management of Actis’ investments in the financial services industry, utilising his extensive sector knowledge and experience of private equity.

His most recent investments include establishing ITsSEG, a $100m buy-and-build insurance brokerage platform in Brazil, and supporting the leading growth markets mobile commerce platform, Upstream.

Growth markets have always fascinated Nick, who joined Actis in 2010 from Cambridge Place Investment Management (CPIM), where he was Head of Private Investments. He began investing in growth markets in 2005 and believes that there is great value in identifying common investment themes and business practices between different growth economies.

Prior to CPIM, Nick was a Principal in the financial services team at private equity firm, Apax Partners and worked for The Boston Consulting Group in both London and Australia.

Nick completed an MBA with Distinction at INSEAD and a Bachelor of Commerce and Arts from the University of Melbourne in Australia.
