Stephan BrebanCEO at Giants’ Shoulders Capital Limited
Stephan has spent over 30 years advising institutional investors on all aspects of private markets. As a result Stephan was one of the early operators in African PE investment in the UK in the mid to late 1990s and has spent over 20 years advising pension plans on how to invest in this area.
Stephan has run teams in both general client work and in manager research and helped train junior staff in all aspects of project management and investment due diligence. Throughout this time, Stephan has worked to negotiate Client Agreement Letters, Limited Partnership Agreements and other legal documents. In recent years Stephan has helped develop Operational Due Diligence processes and this work has already had material benefits. Indeed, until the discovery of problems with Madoff there was often no separate formal operational due diligence and consequently, this was often a part of the investment due diligence. As a result Stephan has been instrumental in building operational due diligence processes post the GFC. In addition Stephan has been working on the investment implications of legal documents for clients investing via Limited Partnership Agreements.
