PGIM has appointed Eric Adler as president and CEO of PGIM Private Alternatives, bringing together the firm’s private alternatives capabilities in order to provide global investors with a cohesive set of investment solutions across private credit, real estate equity and debt, private equity, infrastructure, and agriculture.
“Together the formation of PGIM Private Alternatives and Eric’s appointment reflect our firm belief in the importance of offering our clients seamless access to the full suite of capabilities across PGIM’s affiliates, particularly as institutional clients continue to increase their allocations to private alternatives,” said David Hunt, president and CEO, PGIM.
Under the new structure, underlying investment strategies and portfolio and originations teams will remain distinct, with each affiliate maintaining its own governance.
