Equilibrium Capital picks up CalPERS Guillot

The firm has also hired Guy Jaquier former Prologis CEO

Oregon-based Equilibrium Capital Group, a real-assets focused firm, has named Janine Guillot and Guy Jaquier as directors. Guillot was formerly chief operating investment officer for CalPERS. Jaquier was most recently CEO of Prologis Private Capital at Prologis Inc.

Both Guillot and Jaquier will serve as board members as the firm scales its investments in agriculture, energy, water, real estate and land stewardship.

Guillot is chief operating officer of Incapture LP, which owns Incapture Investments, a boutique investment manager, and Incapture Technologies, an enterprise software company. She left CalPERS last summer saying at the time that she “wanted a break,” from investments. While at CalPERs, Guillot worked on the pension’s Investment Beliefs, which have recently been updated as a more conservative view takes over the CalPERS portfolio under the guidance of new CIO Ted Eliopoulos.

At Prologis, Jaquier was an owner, operator and developer of industrial real estate around the world, overseeing more than $25 billion in private capital funds, as well as joint ventures with institutional investors.

Guillot and Jaquier join CEO David Chen and three others on the Equilibrium Capital board: Ken Wilcox former CEO of Silicon Valley Bank; Andrew Turner, CEO of WHV Investment Management and founder of Northern Lights Capital Group; and Noel Kullavanijaya, Equilibrium’s head of distribution and sales.
