Prior to NewGlobe, Andrew was a managing partner of Vision Capital and served on the global Investment Committee. He was also chairman of the US business in New York.

Intermediate Capital Group was founded in 1989 and, over the last 28 years, has become one of the largest dedicated European asset managers of sub-investment grade corporate debt. ICG was initially established to make direct investments into corporate mezzanine debt in European leveraged buyouts. Having become one of the market leaders in this asset class, it expanded its investment strategy in the late 1990s to include corporate senior secured loans and high yield bonds (in various different product forms) capitalising on its deep knowledge of sub-investment grade credit and the European markets. As at 31 March 2017, ICG has €23.8 billion of assets under management.
