Campbell Lutyens opens fourth US office

The secondaries advisor and placement agent has opened in Charlotte, adding to its New York, Chicago and Los Angeles offices.

Campbell Lutyens is continuing its expansion with the addition of a fourth office opening this year, bringing its total count to seven.

The secondaries advisory firm and placement agent has set up a presence in Charlotte, North Carolina, according to a statement. The office will be used to support both sides of its business and be led by principal Matt Flynn. Flynn joined in September after 12 years in the private fund group at Credit Suisse.

The opening comes after the addition of offices in Chicago and Los Angeles in March. Among the senior staff on the ground in Chicago is head of North American real assets Guillermo Marroquin, who rejoined the firm from Macquarie Infrastructure & Real Assets in January.

The secondaries advisory team has advised on around $4.4 billion of transactions in the US so far this year, including the $2 billion spinout of John Hancock’s infrastructure investment team, the firm noted in an October statement.

In June, Campbell Lutyens officially opened its Singapore office led by principal Aiva Sperberga, a Class of 2017 Secondaries Investor Young Gun. Sperberga had been working for the firm in Singapore since 2013.

Campbell Lutyens has a team of 140 people globally, more than 35 of which are in the US.
