BigSur Partners has announced that Benjamin Hein will be joining the BigSur Team as Chief Operating Officer. He has over 20 years of experience in investment management and private banking.

Mr. Hein holds the CFA and CIPM designations and the CFP (R) certification.
Building the “best in breed” platform for global high net worth families has been BigSur’s focus for the last 7 years. As Chief Operating Officer at BigSur, Mr. Hein will focus on continuing to strengthen the platform by enhancing risk control and streamlining processes.
This is extremely important as BigSur continues to increase the number of private investment deals for our clients: in real estate, private equity, private debt, infrastructure and opportunistic lending.
