The private equity firm Denko Group says it plans to aggressively expand its investment advisory business as signs of growth continue in the alternative investment sector.

"We are faced with increasing demand for advisory services as investors search for safer and more profitable investment vehicles." Carl Winters said in a statement. "To address these demands, we have invested in new systems, aggressively grown our capacity and now are looking to increase our representative and administration workforce."

The Singapore-based firm said the hiring spree, which will be complete at the end of 2010, will grow its transaction capacity by 75%. New staff will be hired in most of Denko Group's locations worldwide. Winters said the goal is to ensure that Denko offices are adequately staffed and that the firm is "well positioned to meet the demand of increasingly savvy investors."
