Associate - Infrastructure Investment and Development


This is a fantastic opportunity for an experienced Associate to join Macquarie Capital’s Infrastructure Investment and Development team to work as a principal investor. 

Macquarie Capital’s Infrastructure Investment and Development team specialises in investing our own capital in smart, sustainable infrastructure projects, and companies. We sponsor the development of landmark projects that strengthen communities by creating new digital, transport and social infrastructure. We also offer flexible, partnership capital to infrastructure companies to help fund capital expenditure, business expansions and acquisitions. Examples include the EUR 1bn A9 Road PPP in Amsterdam, the EUR 80m private multiclient water desalination project in the Port of Antwerp, a 2m customer fibre company in Spain and retirement living projects in the UK.

As an Associate in our team, you will be involved in investment of the Macquarie Capital balance sheet as principal in infrastructure projects and companies across Europe. This will encompass both greenfield project development, including PPPs and brownfield principal investments spanning the energy, transport, social and digital infrastructure sectors. There will be a particular focus on affordable social housing developments, given recent activity in this space.You will be involved in raising and negotiating committed external debt and balance sheet equity for infrastructure opportunities and will be expected to utilise your expertise in project finance modelling to evaluate performance under various operating scenarios to analyse the impacts of different capital structures. You will also negotiate commercial contracts and conduct market and industry research to support transactions for both internal and external stakeholders.

In order to be successful for this role, 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 (4-5 years) within the infrastructure and/or energy (excluding oil and gas) sectors in either Investment Banking, Project Finance, Project Development, Principal Investing, or an Infrastructure Fund. There is a strong preference for candidates with relevant principal investing experience within the digital/data infrastructure, core+/value-add, civil or social infrastructure sectors.

If you have experience of arranging and structuring equity or debt for greenfield infrastructure projects and/or brownfield infrastructure transactions, including core+/value-add infrastructure, in the energy, transport, social, digital infrastructure sectors, in a comparable organisation, we want to hear from you.
