Family office hires investment director

A UK-based family office has hired a senior manager as an investment specialist; he also sits on the board of another family office. 

Renowned credit manager Dipankar Shewaram has become investment director at UK multi-family office Capital Generation Partners.

Shewaram played a pivotal role in the development of Blue Bay Partners from 2002. He has also held senior roles at Western Asset Management, where his team managed assets totalling $25 billion.

More recently, he worked with Tim Bond at Odey Asset Management, the hedge fund group led by Crispin Odey. 

He serves as a non-executive director at the TY Danjuma family office led by Theophilus Danjuma, a former lieutenant general in the Nigerian army, later a successful businessman.

CapGen’s managing partner is Kahled Said, the son of Middle East businessman Wafic Said. He said: “I’m thrilled to have Dip join us at such an exciting time for the business.”

Several of CapGen’s rivals have been involved in defensive mergers in the post-pandemic environment, such as MFO Sandaire, now owned by Schroders and advisory firm Saunderson House, being acquired by its big rival Rathbones for £150 million. 

But CapGen wants to stay on its own growth track. Its assets have grown by $1 billion to $3.7 billion since December 2020, following a string of senior hires and good performance.
