People Moves: Two Hedge Fund Specialists Join Probitas Partners

Hedge Fund veterans James Coleman and Vincent Le Hodey have joined global alternative investment firm Probitas Partners at its London office.

“We are very excited to have James and Vincent join Probitas Partners. They are seasoned industry veterans and well respected in their market." Greg Hausler, a Founding Partner at Probitas Partners, commented, "The current global environment is as tough as it has ever been for capital raising and executing secondary mandates. The addition of James and Vincent to our London office advances our capabilities to provide the very best research, advice, fund offerings and liquidity management to European Limited Partners.”

Coleman, a Managing Director at Probitas Partners, will lead the firm's efforts in Europe by managing key Limited Partner relationships, sourcing new General Partner clients and facilitating secondary sales activities. Le Hodey, a Director at Probitas Partners, will focus his efforts on relationship management and secondary fund advisory for Probitas Partners’ Limited Partner client base. Before joining Probitas Partners, Coleman was a Partner at Deloitte and headed its Fund Placement Advisory Group. Le Hodey also was formerly with Deloitte’s Fund Placement Advisory Group as a Director.

"Probitas Partners provides Vincent and me with a dynamic global platform from which to serve our European clients. We believe accessing Probitas Partners' top-quality fund sponsors, its industry-leading market research, and its deep experience in the secondary advisory business will reward European Limited Partners." Coleman concluded.
