Gresham House hired Ana Janine as an investment manager for its sustainable infrastructure team led by Peter Bachmann.
Prior to joining the UK-based asset manager, Janine worked as a consultant at the Boston Consulting Group, where she worked on private equity transactions across multiple industries.
She will work both within the British Sustainable Infrastructure Fund I and the British Sustainable Infrastructure Fund II, thus strengthening the team’s focus on the following sectors: resource efficiency, digital inclusion, waste management solutions, regeneration, decarbonization , health and education.
Gresham House said the rental complements the first £ 100million (€ 117million) closing of its British Sustainable Infrastructure Fund II, backed by the Worcestershire Pension Fund and the Teesside Pension Fund.
The strategy targets real asset-based solutions to address the environmental and societal challenges contained in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
The hiring of Janine is the second recent recruitment to the team, following the appointment of Sharan Soni as an investment partner in April.
Soni joined Octopus Investments, where he focused on raising and deploying capital in renewable energy opportunities across Europe.
Bachmann said: “Infrastructure underpins the functioning of society and is essential to solving the most pressing sustainability issues.
“We are also extremely proud to have formed a team divided equally by gender, because we truly believe that diverse perspectives are essential to understand and overcome the challenges we face today.”
Gresham House actively manages £ 4.7 billion (€ 5.4 billion) in assets on behalf of institutions, family offices, charities and foundations, individuals and their advisers.
