Guido Lang Appointed Chief Investment Officer
We are delighted to announce that Guido Lang has joined Avelios Alternative Assets as a Managing Director and our Chief Investment Officer.
In this role, Guido will lead the team responsible for the identification and arrangement of investment opportunities tailored to the needs of Avelios client base. He will also lead on the development of our client networks and global network of operating partner relationships.
Guido joins Avelios from King Street Capital, a $20bn US hedge fund, where he was focused on sourcing and investing in illiquid assets in Northern Europe, including real estate and other asset backed investments.
Guido brings over 15 years of investment experience to the firm having started his career at Stormharbour Securities and Lehman Brothers.
Commenting on his appointment, Guido Lang, said: “I am delighted to be joining Avelios, especially at such an interesting time in the midst of the Covid-19 crisis. This is an exciting time to be launching a new business focused on alternative assets, which provide attractive protection from continued uncertainty and volatility in the public markets. In the months ahead, we also expect to find new, high quality investment opportunities for our investors as existing asset owners become distressed and banks restructure their loan portfolios. I look forward to helping Avelios clients navigate this fast moving landscape and capitalise on the opportunities it creates.”
Duncan Souster, CEO of Avelios said: “We are delighted Guido has joined the Avelios team. His addition significantly strengthens our experience working across alternative asset classes and business situations, which is especially valuable in the current climate. Guido also brings a powerful sourcing and investment partner network, which will help us to bring the highest quality opportunities to our investors.”
