The financial services veteran has began his career at Standard Life, where he became a member of the group executive committee in 1996, before moving to be chief executive of retail banking at RBS, leading the integration of NatWest. Following a senior role with Bank of Scotland, Higgins became chief executive at Tesco Bank from 2008 until 2018. Latterly, he was appointed as strategic adviser to the First Minister to implement the Scottish National Investment Bank. He will also chair the N4 advisory board, of which further appointments will be announced in the coming weeks. Higgins’ appointment is the Glasgow-based private equity firm's fifth hire of the year, as it focusses on expanding investment and portfolio solutions practices. He commented: “I’ve known the nucleus of the team at N4 for a number of years now and I’m thrilled to formalise our partnership and become part of a new firm determined on growing and supporting businesses throughout the UK and beyond.” Read More In January last year colleagues Allan Dowie, Shauna Powell and Keith Mitchell exited Clyde Blowers Capital to set up their own firm, along with ex-colleague Keith Gibson, who left a couple of years earlier. Having worked for more than 12 years together, N4 was appointed as manager of a Clyde Blowers investment vehicle they had been involved with. This was originally a £420m fund, comprising seven globally based assets, but at the time of N4’s launch, five assets remained in the fund. “The current fund has an industrial focus to it, looking at mission-critical businesses with a strong aftermarket,” Dowie stated. The team is now targeting a range of businesses, with an interest in technology, industrial and healthcare deals, seeking to make investments of between £5m and £50m. The other side of the business is its solutions arm, which offers advisory across mergers, transaction and integration; business transformation; corporate development and fundraising; people and operations assistance. Dowie added that it has been helping businesses that are “at an inflection point”, working on systems and processes to build towards fundraising and eventual exits - again with a focus so far on tech and clinical research. “Many of them are performing better than expectations during pandemic - there have been a lot of healthcare deals, with many businesses wanting to scale up.” Don't miss the latest headlines with our twice-daily newsletter - sign up here for free .
