Australia’s AMP Capital has added two senior executives to its global infrastructure team, the firm announced in a statement today.
One of the new hires is Manish Aggarwal, who is now the team’s investment and operations director. He is based in London and will be responsible for a “range of activities spanning transaction execution, due diligence, asset management, and managing finance and business operations,” the firm explained.
Aggarwal has 17 years of experience in principal investments, corporate development and a range of other activities and has worked at Lloyds Banking Group and ABN AMRO.
Across the Atlantic, Jake Houseman has taken up the post of senior vice president in the North American infrastructure team, based in New York. Houseman will play a key role in deal origination and asset management across the Americas. Prior to joining AMP Capital, he spent seven years at Macquarie Capital, where he served as senior vice president. He has also worked at Trafalgar Corporate, Merrill Lynch and Putnam Investments.
“The appointment of Manish and Jake is part of our continuing commitment to develop AMP Capital’s global infrastructure operations and capabilities,” commented Boe Pahari, AMP Capital head of infrastructure for Europe and North America.
In late June, AMP Capital closed a €400 million subordinated debt fund targeting infrastructure investments. The fund was backed by 30 investors from across the globe.
