Mouland heads new infra unit at Greystone

Greystone Managed Investments, the large Canadian money manager, has launched a new infrastructure investment team headed by Jeff Mouland (pictured), a 19-year industry veteran whose prior roles included stints at PSPIB and Industry Funds Management.

Greystone Managed Investments, the Regina, Saskatchewan-based money manager which had more than $34 billion under management at the end of 2010, has launched a new infrastructure investment team which will be based in Toronto and headed by Jeff Mouland. 

Mouland joins as executive director and head of infrastructure. He has 19 years of infrastructure investment experience in total, and was most recently part of the infrastructure investments team at Public Sector Pension Investment Board (PSPIB), the $58 billion Canadian pension, where he oversaw global deal sourcing and execution and developed emerging market direct investment and strategic fund investment strategies. 

Prior to PSPIB, Mouland spent 12 years in New York, holding senior management positions with Industry Funds Management, DA Capital and CIT Group. He had begun his career with engineering firm Peter Kiewit Sons, where he worked on projects in the oil and gas, power and transport sectors.

Details of the strategy are still in the works. A note from Greystone to clients said that Mouland “will devote his initial months to developing an infrastructure strategy that meets the specific needs of Greystone clients”.

Greystone said the move was part of “the continuing evolution of our firm in response to client demand” and that infrastructure does not overlap with its existing strategies, which include fixed income, Canadian equities, US equities, international equities and real estate. 

Mouland will report directly to Rob Vanderhooft, Greystone’s chief executive and investment officer.
