Associate, Infrastructure Investment and Development

New York

As an Associate on our team, you will be involved in investment of equity capital from Macquarie’s own balance sheet into infrastructure projects in North America, encompassing greenfield project development and M&A investments, focusing on the digital infrastructure sector. The role involves supporting the Infrastructure Investment and Development team in assessing principal infrastructure opportunities, building financial models, negotiating commercial contracts, conducting due diligence, market and industry research, preparing materials to support a transaction for both internal and external stakeholders and engaging professionally with our counterparties, such as industry partners and co-investors, due diligence advisors and client representatives.

You will have an outstanding academic record and combine the knowledge obtained in your undergraduate degree (preferably in Finance, Economics, Mathematics, Engineering or Law) with your previous experience (3-4 years) within the digital infrastructure sector in either Investment Banking, Mergers and Acquisitions, Private Equity, or Project Development to quickly make an impact.

Your knowledge of all stages in infrastructure transaction execution, including origination, diligence, and execution of equity, debt, and M&A transactions will enable you to summarize and present the results in a succinct manner. You will use your expertise in financial modelling (ideally project finance models) to evaluate performance under various operating scenarios and to analyze the impacts of different capital structures.

If you have experience arranging and structuring equity or debt for greenfield infrastructure projects, and/or M&A transactions in the digital infrastructure sector, and have worked in a comparable organization, we want to hear from you.
