Panmure Gordon hires Head of M&A to expand investment banking division

14 May 2018

Panmure Gordon has appointed Toby Rolls as Head of M&A, as the firm continues to expand its investment banking capability.

Toby is the latest senior appointment at Panmure Gordon as it delivers on its strategy to support the UK growth and mid-cap corporates and investment companies by building long-term relationships and offering equity or debt in public or private markets. He will report to John Muncey, who recently joined Panmure Gordon as Head of Investment Banking.

Toby has 17 years’ investment banking experience, advising corporate and financial sponsor clients on a broad range of public and private M&A.  Before joining Panmure Gordon, he was at Keefe, Bruyette & Woods, the financial services specialist, having previously been a senior team member at Perella Weinberg Partners, the independent M&A and advisory firm. Toby began his career at Merrill Lynch, working in London and New York.

Within the financial services sector Toby advises insurance companies, banks and non-bank lenders, asset and wealth managers, and FinTech companies. He also works more broadly with clients across Natural Resources; Power and Utilities; Real Estate; and Technology and Media. Toby has advised on M&A transactions in the UK (many under the Takeover Code), the U.S., and in continental Europe.  He also advises clients on strategic, legal and regulatory issues around M&A, valuation, corporate structure, and governance.

John Muncey said: “Toby has strong M&A experience with a proven and successful track record in mergers, acquisitions and takeovers. Our corporate clients, both public and private, increasingly look for M&A solutions either to grow or to monetise an investment, and Toby’s skillset will enable us to provide a full service offering to these clients.”

Panmure Gordon has been growing its capabilities under CEO Ian Axe’s leadership. John Muncey and Toby Rolls are two of the latest hires as part of this expansion.
