Ryan strengthens AIG European private equity team

The US insurance group has boosted its private equity fund of funds group in London by coaxing Rhonda Ryan to leave Insight Investment, the asset management arm of Scottish bank HBoS.

AIG Global Investment Group has appointed Rhonda Ryan as a vice president and head of its private equity funds group’s London team.

Ryan is responsible for managing a private equity team of five people, and is
in charge of overseeing all European fund investments in conjunction with the team’s Zurich-based professionals.

She will also be in charge of sourcing, due diligence, monitoring product development and marketing. The European Private Equity Funds team is part of a team of 24 people which manages more than $7 billion of private equity commitments invested in AIGGIG’s private equity funds-of-funds portfolios.

Before joining AIG Global Investment Group, Ryan was head of private equity at Insight Investment, the asset manager of the Halifax Bank of Scotland group, where she managed a portfolio of over €1 billion for institutional clients.

She was chairman of Insight’s private equity investment committee and a member of a number of fund advisory boards. AIG Global Investment Group manages approximately $532.9 billion in assets.
