Investcorp, a global alternative investment firm, has appointed Suhail Shaikh as co-head of Investcorp’s private credit business.

Based in New York, Shaikh will co-lead the private credit business alongside current co-head, Mike Mauer. Shaikh brings with him approximately $200 million of assets under management and three team members from his previous firm, Alcentra, expanding the private credit team to 14 professionals and team-managed assets to approximately $500 million. While at Alcentra, he led their private credit business. Prior to that, he was a partner and senior investment professional at SLR Capital Partners.

“Over the past months, we have expanded our product base and the addition of Suhail and his team’s expertise will only elevate our underwriting and sourcing capabilities, which will be additive to our platform,” says Mauer.
