BEX Capital announces promotions and new hires 

  • Thomas Carbonel and Alexis Ferrer promoted to Senior Partner
  • Four new hires strengthen the investment team

BEX Capital, the private equity secondaries specialist, announces the promotions of Thomas Carbonel and Alexis Ferrer to Senior Partner and a major expansion of its investment team.

BEX Capital, founded in France in 2010, is the first and only secondaries firm to be solely dedicated to the acquisition of positions in global private equity fund-of-funds, secondary funds and co-investment funds. It has over $1.3 billion of capital under management. 

The firm promoted Thomas Carbonel and Alexis Ferrer to the newly created position of Senior Partner in recognition of their important contribution to the continued growth and further institutionalisation of the firm.

This summer, the firm also hired a Vice President and three Associates to join the investment team. These hires are in line with the continued growth of BEX Capital’s assets under management and deal flow, following the close of its fourth fund in March. 

Victor Versmee, Vice President, joins from Omnes Capital where he contributed to the origination and execution of buy-out transactions in France. Previously he worked in M&A advisory at BNP Paribas.

Nicolas Constantino, Quentin Karminski and Ugo Minguet join as Associates. Their backgrounds are in transaction services and banking.

Benjamin Revillon commented: “2022 has been a very important year for our growing firm, during which we closed BEX Fund IV at $765 million, our largest fund ever. Alexis and Thomas have been instrumental in the expansion and professionalisation of our firm. We created the Senior Partner position to show our appreciation of their valuable contributions and to strengthen our partnership for the future.”

“The significant increase in the size of our investment team is an important step and reflects the considerable growth of our assets under management. We are proud to have been able to attract new talent in a very tight market. As a result, we believe we are very well placed to benefit from the opportunities that undoubtedly will present themselves as investors reposition their portfolios in light of the multiple challenges facing our economies today.”
