Aktiv Kapital Appoints Ramesh Kashyap as Head of Investments for Canada

Aktiv Kapital announced the appointment of Ramesh Kashyap as Head of Investments for Canada. Mr. Kashyap will lead business development activities, as well as create and manage new strategic opportunities with a focus on developing and growing Aktiv Kapital Canada's distressed and alternative investments portfolio. As financial institutions make portfolio sales a core part of their business strategy, Aktiv Kapital's investments help sellers reduce risk, redeploy capital, effectively use resources and benchmark internal performance. Most recently, Mr. Kashyap was a managing partner at Darion Capital, whose focus was to find and finance distressed commercial loan and equity opportunities. Previously, he was a senior vice president and head of business development for Wachovia Capital Canada and prior to that senior vice president with GE Capital.
