Associate or Vice President (Debt Specialist) - Infrastructure Investment & Development
This is a fantastic opportunity to join Macquarie Capital's Infrastructure Investment and Development team as an experienced Associate or Vice President to work as a debt specialist 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 or Vice President in our team, you will be involved in raising finance for investment of the Macquarie Capital balance sheet as principal in infrastructure projects and companies across Europe, encompassing both greenfield project development (including PPP's) and brownfield principal investments including core+/value-add infrastructure, spanning the energy, transport, social and digital infrastructure sectors.
You will be working alongside the principal investment teams and be responsible for raising and negotiating committed external debt for infrastructure opportunities, negotiating term sheets and finance contracts, conducting due diligence, managing fund raising processes to support transactions for both internal and external stakeholders and engaging professionally with our counterparties, such as lenders, industry partners and global co-investors, due diligence advisors and client representatives.
To be successful in the 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 expertise in project finance modelling to evaluate performance under various operating scenarios to analyse the impacts of different capital structures. You will have 4-6 years' experience 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 to quickly make an impact. Demonstrating a broad base of lender relationships will be an added consideration for the role. There is a strong preference for candidates with relevant experience in debt advisory or principal investment 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 (excluding oil & gas), transport, social, digital infrastructure sectors, in a comparable organisation, we want to hear from you.
