N4 Partners has appointed Raf Khan as a manager in the advisory arm of the Glasgow-based investment firm.
A former CFO at Taylor Hopkinson, he held several positions in the financial services industry, including five years at Johnston Carmichael as a senior business advisor.
Khan joins N4 after a year of growth for the firm’s advisory practice, which has seen the team win a number of cross-sector mandates, as well as the appointment of senior members.
Andrew Kerr, Director at N4, commented: “Over the past 12 months, the consultancy side of our business has grown significantly and the appointment of Raf further demonstrates our ambition to build a highly skilled team ahead of what we expect 2022 to be a busy year.
N4 recently announced the promotion of Andrew Leslie to Associate Director. He has been with the firm since its inception in 2020 and previously held the position of Investment Manager.
In January 2020, colleagues Allan Dowie, Shauna Powell and Keith Mitchell left Clyde Blowers Capital to start their own business, with ex-colleague Keith Gibson leaving a few years earlier.
Having worked together for over 12 years, N4 was made a director of a Clyde Blowers investment vehicle in which they had been involved.
It was originally a £420m fund, made up of seven global assets, but at the time of N4’s launch, five assets remained in the fund.
The team targets a range of companies, focusing on technology, industrial and healthcare transactions, looking to make investments between £5m and £50m.
The other side of the business is its solutions arm, which offers advice on mergers, transactions and integration; business transformation; business development and fundraising; assistance to people and operations.
Last September, N4 Partners appointed Benny Higgins as chairman – one of several senior recruits in 2021.
