It will be a real privilege to lead Jacobs Holding, given the strong purpose of the firm and its investment approach, which intersects three investment trends in alternative asset management: focusing on direct investments, pursuing a long-term investment horizon, and bringing sustainability and digitalization to the core of its activities.”
