Based in London, McDonald joins from Credit Suisse where he was global head of secondary advisory and a senior member of the screening committee for the firm’s private fund group.

His focus will be to grow the Deutsche’s private equity business by identifying alpha-generating, bespoke solutions to complement client portfolios.

Deutsche AM has €77 billion in alternative investments.
