“As a partner of Taco for 9 years I can highly recommend PH7 Hedge Fund Advisors. He has dealt with just about any fund structuring issue, in many jurisdictions and I found his knowledge and experience on financial, strategic and operational issues to be exceptional. I have rarely seen someone who can project manage while making sure costs and timeline are on track. Moreover his negotiation skills to find a win-win solution and then close a deal have been of great benefit to me and our firm.”

Clemente Cappello, Founder Sturgeon Capital

“PH7 were used by SQN Asset Finance Income Fund Limited to assist in the selection of a new investment manager, with a particular focus on operational due diligence on the short list. As a listed investment company, we needed an experienced and robust approach that met tight deadlines. PH7 delivered on that but also brought a pragmatic and commercial angle that can be lacking from some others. I would happily appoint PH7 in the future.”

Paul Meader, Senior Independent Director SQN Asset Finance Income Fund

“Pragmatic, straightforward and highly experienced. Taco knows the industry inside out.”

Massimo Baggiani, Founder Niche Asset Management

“Taco has been key in setting-up Pentalpha Capital in a quick, economic and effective way. He stayed onboard as CFO/COO and Compliance Officer in the early stages of the company, and ensured a smooth hand over to full time management, to allow a further expansion of the business. Pentalpha happily retained Taco’s services as a non-Executive Director, in order to be able to tap into his long time experience.”

Roberto Bissoli, CEO Pentalpha Capital

“I have known Taco for over 20 years and have had the opportunity to work with him as a colleague on two separate occasions. Taco is a person of integrity who can be counted on to say what he thinks and to do what he says. He is also a skilled analyst who can work across equity, debt and derivative instruments, with both a fundamentals and portfolio perspective. Taco is also a practical operations manager who knows the mechanics of getting a fund set up from a regulatory / compliance point of view as well as a trading / counterparty point of view.”

James Chavin, Senior Partner McKinsey & Co

"I have known Taco since 2002 in both a professional and social capacity. He has an extensive knowledge of the many participants in the global hedge fund industry and the regulatory environments that they are subject to. He is fully aware of the difficulties and complexities of both creating and nurturing a new company whilst still keeping the investment process and results on track. On a personal level he is hardworking, honest, efficient and goal orientated whilst still being pleasant and approachable."
