MML Capital Partners has appointed a new investment manager, hiring Edward Baker from KPMG. Edward will support the existing investment team in investing MML’s fifth fund which was raised in May 2011.
Prior to joining MML, Edward qualified as a chartered accountant with KPMG and subsequently worked in their Transaction Services division for three years. During this time, he worked on a variety of buy-side and sell-side UK mid-market private equity backed transactions.
Bal Johal, Managing Partner in MML’s London office said, "Edward is a welcome addition to the team; he will bring valuable transaction experience across a variety of sectors and deal types and this will benefit the team as we continue to invest Fund V."
