Krol stated: “I look forward to working with members and colleagues to expand our offering in the Americas and to strengthen the voice of the alternatives industry in government and among key stakeholders, especially the investor community.”

Krol will retain his existing responsibilities such as managing policy and regulatory engagement in Europe and Asia Pacific.

At the same time, he will serve as the global head of AIMA’s private credit unit Alternative Credit Council (ACC).

AIMA CEO Jack Inglis said: “The US is by far the largest alternatives market in the world. Over $1trilllion – more than half of our manager members’ assets – are managed by firms headquartered in the US.

“It is also the world’s largest private credit market, where many of our ACC members are headquartered.”
