Robert Clarke

  • Role: Partner & Chair of Investment Committee

I have worked in the alternative assets industry for more than 30 years, after qualifying as a chartered accountant with PWC. Most of my career was spent with various incarnations of the asset manager of Electra Investment Trust plc, where I was involved in fund raising and firm management, alongside transacting with private equity.

I was a leading member of the team that bought out the asset manager in 1999 and subsequently a founding partner in the de-merged buy-out business. In 2008 I moved away from a full time career to personal investing with some NXD roles. This led to me becoming a client of Connection Capital and joining as a Partner in 2012.

Connection Capital is my primary focus, with an emphasis on overall management and development of the business alongside my role as Chair of the Investment Committee.
