Elm Capital, a London-based advisory firm, has converted to a partnership structure and promoted four of its professionals to partner.
The change was made to support the growth of the firm’s primary and secondary market businesses. Emanuele Musso, Alberto Badino, Bernhard Ellmer and Samantha Page were promoted.
Musso joined Elm from New York alternatives firm Auda International, now HQ Capital, where he focused on business development and marketing; Badino joined from US placement agent Probitas Partners where he was responsible for origination and execution of primary capital raising; Ellmer was previously head of investor relations at Luxembourg-based private equity advisor Augur Capital and Page is responsible for operations and previously worked at Sony Music Entertainment.
Deshormes established Elm in 2004 after eleven years at JP Morgan, first as head of its corporate finance division in Belgium and then as managing director of equity capital markets in London. Elm has been active as a broker dealer in the US since 2011, running its operations there from London.
