BEX Capital appoints Bernard Charpentier as General Counsel

  • Bernard Charpentier joins from global alternatives manager Quilvest
  • Three key hires to the BEX investment team to be announced soon

Following the closing of BEX Fund IV in March 2022 at $765 million, BEX Capital, the first investment firm focused exclusively on secondaries in private equity fund-of-funds (FoF), secondaries funds and co-investment funds, today announces the recruitment of Bernard Charpentier as General Counsel.

Bernard joins from Quilvest Capital Partners, a global alternatives investment firm with over $6bn AUM. In his nine years as General Counsel, he helped to structure numerous investment funds and programs, and supported deal execution. Bernard previously held positions at Luxembourg law firm, Elvinger Hoss & Prussen, and Banque de Luxembourg. He qualified as an “avocat à la Cour” in Luxembourg in 2012.

Further strengthening the firm’s capital deployment capabilities, BEX Capital is expanding its investment team with the addition of a Vice President and two Portfolio Managers, who will join in the coming months.

Bernard Charpentier commented: “I’m proud to join BEX Capital, a unique player in the private equity secondary arena, right on the back of the firm’s remarkable fundraising of BEX Fund IV, completed in just three months. This is a great opportunity for me to apply nearly two decades of experience to further developing this successful platform.”

Benjamin Revillon commented: “The arrival of Bernard Charpentier as first General Counsel of BEX Capital is an important moment for us, as we complete the institutionalisation of the firm. Bernard’s comprehensive and multi-jurisdiction experience will contribute to the further growth of BEX Capital, and be invaluable as we deploy our newest fund, BEX Fund IV.”
