The firm’s £74 billion international Private Markets business has over two decades of experience in investing in private credit, structured credit, impact and private equity, real estate and infrastructure.

Expanding M&G's Private Markets Ambitions

Private Markets investment is central to M&G’s growth ambitions in asset management, building on the firm’s rich heritage and market-leading capabilities to develop innovative propositions for UK and international clients. Private markets continue to be a bright spot for the asset management industry, accounting for half of the industry’s global revenue in 2022*, and one of M&G’s priorities is to become the European champion for private assets. 

Emmanuel has over 25 years of experience, most recently at Allianz Global Investors where he led and developed its Private Markets capability and was instrumental in building out the company’s private debt franchise. Prior to this, he spent nine years at BNP Paribas where, as Co-Head of its debt advisory and financing team, he led on high profile European infrastructure and energy deals.

Reporting to Joseph Pinto, Chief Executive Officer of M&G Investments, Emmanuel will join on 14 March 2024 and will be based in London. 


“I am confident that Emmanuel’s combination of extensive investment experience and a track record of delivery, will help M&G to realise its ambition of being the go-to asset manager for investors seeking exposure to European assets by focusing on high value-add solutions built around client needs, that deliver attractive and sustainable margins. "

“Private Markets is an area where long-term investors remain attracted to the diversification benefits on offer, typically with higher returns and lower volatility, and as the opportunities evolve, is an area with the potential to play a key role in impact investing.”

Joseph Pinto

“I have long admired M&G’s Private Markets business – a firm with leading investment capabilities and enviable strategies for institutional investors in private credit, real estate and infrastructure. The past 15 years have turbocharged the growth of private markets and the next decade is poised to be equally as exciting as the industry evolves to meet the needs of both clients and societies, whether it is by broadening access through tokenisation or by investing in infrastructure, real estate and companies that shape the world around us. I am looking forward to joining M&G as they have all the ingredients for success – excellent investment capabilities, financial fire power from the asset owner and an ambition to grow and innovate to meet the needs of clients.”
