The Expert in Global Alternative Investment (WT)
XIO Group is a global multi-billion-dollar alternative investments firm headquartered in London, with operations in China, Germany, Hong Kong, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States of America. In June, XIO’s Chief Executive Officer, Joseph Pacini, was named among the winners of CEO Monthly Magazine’s 2018 CEO of the Year Awards programme with the title of ‘Most Outstanding in Financial Services’. On the back of this achievement, we spoke to Joseph to find out more about his extraordinary success in the industry.
Joseph Pacini has a long history of success in the global financial landscape. During his career he has been both the Head of J.P Morgan Alternative Investments Group in Asia and the Managing Director and Head of BlackRock Alternative Investors in the Asia Pacific. Prior to this, Joseph was an Analyst at private equity firm Bain Capital LLC in London, England.
As CEO and Co-Founder of the XIO Group, Joseph has capitalised on his years of hard-earned experience to create a firm that has swiftly become a world-leader in alternative investment, and a formidable pace-setter in the financial world. The crux of XIO’s success can be found in their utilisation of Joseph’s local expertise in the Asia Pacific region, as they look to secure untapped opportunities in fast growing Asian markets through investment in high-performing, market-leading businesses.
“I was told that “luck” is where preparation meets opportunity. Work hard, prepare and look for opportunities everywhere.”
Joseph took a moment out of his busy schedule to offer some insight into his day to day management of XIO and its operations. “I am responsible for overall firm strategy and management of XIO Group. My goal is to set foundational principles, hire exceptional talent and let them govern themselves.” This ethos lends itself well to Joseph’s approach to the company’s internal culture, which is defined, above all, by a “live by example” mentality.
Equally, Joseph isn’t coy when it comes to the heart of XIO’s enduring success – he believes, fundamentally, that great teams can achieve fantastic things: “Hiring great people and working with them to achieve a common goal is crucial to the firm’s investment strategy. I am immensely proud of my team and all that they have done and continue to do.”
