Goldman Sachs Group has appointed Anna Skoglund as the new Head of Financial and Strategic Investors Group (FSIG), the lender’s group advising private equity firms and large financial investors in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
Investment banks have been bolstering their teams covering buyout firms, sovereign funds, and pension investors. Private equity dealmaking has soared to its highest level since the global financial crisis and shows no signs of cooling off, thanks to loose financing conditions and the record amount of capital these firms have to deploy.
Pulford’s role as Head of the EMEA Cross Markets Group will be taken up by Olaf Diaz-Pintado, who also remains co-Head of EMEA Investment Banking Services.
Skoglund, who was a member of the FSIG team in Europe, joined Goldman Sachs in 1996 as an analyst in the credit department. She later moved to the investment banking department, working on technology, media and telecommunications deals as well as consumer and retail transactions.
Similarly, Skoglund was made a managing director in 2007 and a partner in 2018.
