Dutch infrastructure investor DIF has appointed Paul Nash to head its public-private partnerships (PPP) team, spread across Amsterdam, Paris and London, DIF said in a statement.
DIF has also hired two new members to join its UK and Paris teams.
Angela Roshier has joined DIF’s UK team as director of Asset Management. Prior to joining DIF, Roshier worked at 3i for five years where she was a member of the infrastructure team, involved in asset management with responsibility for managing its portfolio of project finance initiative (PFI) investments, DIF said. PFI is the UK government’s standardised procurement process involving the private sector.
The other hire, Mathieu Hévin, will be joining DIF’s Paris team as an associate director working on both origination and asset management. Hévin worked with Babcock & Brown for the past four years, where he was a member of the infrastructure team and was involved in PPP and renewable energy transactions.
DIF has a team of 24 investment professions and has offices in the Netherlands, France, UK and Germany.
The fund manager recently closed its second infrastructure fund, DIF Infrastructure II, which invests in European infrastructure assets targeting primarily PPP/PFI concessions and renewable energy projects. Established in 2005, the company currently manages a portfolio of €500 million of PPP/PFI and renewable energy assets.
