Sameer Shamsi joined the investment bank’s private fund group as a director in December, according to two sources familiar with the matter.
Shamsi left Evercore in March where he was most recently a managing director, as Secondaries Investor reported. Shamsi joined Evercore in 2013 from UBS and worked on sales of portfolios of direct interests, fund and GP restructurings, and stapled deals, according to his Linkedin profile.
The bank’s secondaries advisory team includes directors Chris Areson, who assumed responsibility for the Americas when McDonald left, and Jonathan Abecassis, who now heads EMEA and Asia. The secondaries advisory unit is part of the private fund group, which is led by Michael Murphy and Kevin Naughton.
