Palatine Strengthens Buyout and Impact Teams


We have grown both Buyout and Impact teams within our business, following an active first quarter of the year.

Rupert Brown has been promoted to Senior Investment Director and moves across to the Impact team, whilst the Buyout team has welcomed new recruit Carly Sinicrope as Investment Manager. Both will be based in the London office.

Rupert has been a part of our team since 2016, working on new deals and with portfolio companies where he has been an advocate of promoting sustainability. Like all members of the team, Rupert is driven by impact investment and will offer the Impact team a senior resource with a number of years’ experience across a wide breadth of markets.

He said: “Palatine sees private equity as a force for good. It is the synergy of a focus on returns with doing the right thing that has led to so much success within Palatine and across the portfolio.

“As I move across to the Impact team, it is an exciting next chapter. Palatine continues to strive for sustainable growth with a commitment to the environment and society. I look forward to working with portfolio management teams to elevate their future business plans through impact investment.”

Carly joins the firm from corporate finance advisor Clearwater International, where she was embedded within the M&A team and advised on deals, including our investment in global sustainability consultancy Anthesis.

At Palatine, she will play a role in sourcing new business opportunities and collaborating with management teams to implement strong value enhancement strategies. Her appointment follows the successful raising of our fourth Buyout fund in 2020.

Carly has a Masters degree in Climate Change Management and Finance from Imperial College London, and was attracted to Palatine due to the firm’s reputation, strong brand values and pioneering approach to sustainability.

She said: “Palatine has an industry-leading approach to private equity investing with a strong focus on relationships, value enhancement and embedding a strong ESG performance.  Having worked closely with the team on some significant transactions, they were the natural choice for my move into private equity.”


Carly and Rupert are both great additions for the Buyout and Impact teams. Their clear passion for sustainability aligns with our own positive equity ethos, and I am sure both will play a key role in driving sustainable growth across our portfolio.
