Guy Hands: The private finance pioneer
As part of Euromoney's 50th anniversary coverage, we profile some of the biggest names that we interviewed for our April capital markets focus.
Guy Hands began his career in Eurobond trading at Goldman Sachs in the early 1980s. He made his name at Nomura in the 1990s with the pioneering securitization deals of its Principal Finance Group.
Now he is head of Terra Firma, the leading private equity firm that has invested €17 billion in 34 businesses since 1994, with an aggregate enterprise value of over €48 billion.
