The UK's Pensions Infrastructure Platform has added to its investment team with the hiring of Paul Gill as an investment manager.
Gill will begin his role next month, arriving from his position as associate director and infrastructure and energy specialist at Lloyds Banking Group Asset Management, a role he has held since 2006.
He will join PIP as the fourth member of its investment team, reporting to Ed Wilson, its chief investment officer. Nick Cole, PIP’s investment director, joined the platform in September.
His expertise is based in infrastructure debt structuring and re-structuring across social infrastructure and renewables. At PIP, he will be responsible for a mixture of debt structuring and equity investments.
“[Gill] has a wealth of experience across multiple sectors and will complement our existing skill sets,” said Mike Weston, PIP’s chief executive. “His capabilities in senior debt and bond origination, distribution and deal restructuring will be particularly valuable.”
Gill’s hiring comes as PIP continues to fundraise for its £1 billion ($1.2 billion; €1.1 billion) Multi-Strategy Infrastructure Fund launched in March. The fund reached a £125 million first close the following month before making its debut investment, a portfolio of rooftop solar assets, in July.
