Healthcare-focused private equity firm Strathspey Crown LLC has tapped banking industry veteran Vikram Malik as a managing partner.

Malik arrives at the Newport Beach firm after spending two years at Deutsche Bank in New York, where he was vice chairman of investment banking and global head of medical technology.

He previously spent 11 years at Bank of America, serving as a managing director in the healthcare corporate and investment banking group.

Strathspey Crown focuses on investing in healthcare technologies and services, with a particular eye on “lifestyle” healthcare benefits, such as plastic surgery.

The firm started last year, and its founders include Robert Grant, former chief executive of the surgical unit of Bausch & Lomb Inc. in Aliso Viejo and former president of aesthetics division of Irvine-based Allergan Inc.; and John Clarey.
