AMP Capital bolsters listed real assets capability
Australian asset manager AMP Capital has added two portfolio managers-analysts to its London-based global listed infrastructure and global listed real estate teams.
Andy Jones has been appointed as portfolio manager-analyst to AMP Capital’s global listed infrastructure team.
He will report to AMP Capital’s head of Global Listed Infrastructure Giuseppe Corona.
Jones will be responsible for covering global transportation infrastructure across Europe and Latin America within AMP Capital’s global listed infrastructure fund including toll roads, airports and ports.
Jones joins from Royal Bank of Canada where he was director, equity research, and was responsible for covering Pan-European transport infrastructure companies as well as several mail and logistics operators.
Previously, he was with JP Morgan Cazenove as an associate, equity research, covering transport and logistics companies.
Oliver Reiff has been appointed portfolio manager-analyst to AMP Capital’s global listed real estate team.
Reporting to the head of Global Listed Real Estate James Maydew, he will be covering real estate across European markets including the UK, Germany, Spain and Scandinavia.
Reiff was most recently with Deutsche Bank’s equity research team where he covered UK real estate companies as well as those in continental Europe.
Reiff launched Deutsche Bank’s UK real estate research product, which included in-depth analysis of the commercial and residential real estate markets.
Matthew Hoult, head of Listed Real Assets at AMP Capital, said: “We are delighted to welcome Andy and Oliver as we strengthen our listed real assets capability. Both bring solid experience across their specialist areas and their investment knowledge is a strong addition to our global real assets coverage.
“We think the potential for future growth in listed real assets is significant as investors around the world look to access stable returns from a range of investment opportunities in infrastructure and real estate, while benefiting from qualities including diversification and liquidity.”
As of 31 December 2016, AMP Capital had A$165bn (€110.6bn) of assets under management.
