“Kate Campbell and Louisa Yeoman, co-heads of European distribution, have decided to leave AMP Capital to pursue an entrepreneurial venture,” the statement said. “Ms. Campbell and Ms. Yeoman have contributed significantly to the global growth of AMP Capital’s business through their development of the European sales function.

“Under their leadership, AMP Capital established a strong client base both within the UK and in key European markets and the distribution team has grown in size and capability. We would like to recognise their achievements for our business, and wish them well in their new project.”

The duo could not be reached for comment at the time of publication.

Yeoman was recently named in Infrastructure Investor’s inaugural Rainmaker 20 ranking, where it was noted that AMP Capital’s European LP base numbered less than 10 when she arrived, but had increased to more than 100 today.

AMP Capital continues to fundraise for its global infrastructure equity and debt funds, targeting $3 billion and $3.5 billion, respectively. Global Infrastructure Fund II recorded a $1.7 billion first close last year and has made five investments in the UK and US. Infrastructure Debt Fund IV, a mezzanine-focused vehicle, had raised about $2.7 billion in July.
