Idinvest Partners, a Europe-focused primary, secondaries and mezzanine investor, has appointed a new global head of investor relations and marketing to help it expand beyond its French home market. According to a statement from the firm, Charles Daulon du Laurens will be in charge of capital raising, investor relations and marketing on a global basis, managing teams in Europe and Asia. Last week was his first, he told Secondaries Investor. His appointment is to support the firm's move from a largely French investor base to a global one, he said. The phased expansion will start in Europe, then Asia and the Middle East, where the firm has offices, and eventually North America.
