Jean Pierre Mustier, formerly head of corporate and investment banking at UniCredit, has joined Tikehau Capital as a partner to help the fund manager's international expansion.
Mustier joined in early January and is based in London. He stepped down from UniCredit at the end of 2014 after a tenure of almost four years at the bank. He is, however, still a member of UniCredit's international advisory board.
As well as overseeing Tikehau's international expansion, Mustier will contribute to the fund manager's existing business.
Tikehau Capital Group manages $5bn for institutional and private investors in various asset classes - listed and private equity, credit, private debt, and real estate - through its asset management subsidiary, Tikehau IM.
