UBS Asset Management’s (UBS-AM) Real Estate & Private Markets (REPM) business has made two appointments to strengthen its global infrastructure effort.
Patrick Cunningham joins REPM with over 20 years of investment markets experience. He will report to Tom O’Shea and will be responsible for growing REPM’s client and product franchise and for ensuring its infrastructure investment capabilities, across both debt and equity strategies, are marketed across the Americas.
Cunningham was most recently a partner at McCarvill Capital Partners where he spent the past two years leading its private markets advisory and placement team, specialising in real assets, infrastructure, power and energy investment strategies. Prior to this, he held relevant senior roles at leading investment houses, including Macquarie, Capital Dynamics and JP Morgan, and gained extensive business development experience initiating and growing institutional client relationships and developing new products.
Viktor Kozel joins REPM with over 12 years of relevant experience and will report to Alessandro Merlo. He joins the team as it nears the closing of its second infrastructure debt fund, the Archmore Infrastructure Debt Platform II, for which he will play a key role in the origination, analysis, due diligence and execution of new investment opportunities across Europe.
Kozel joins REPM from Deutsche Bank where he spent the past seven years working on debt transactions involving assets in the transportation, infrastructure and energy sectors, based in London. Prior to this, he supported business development activities at GMR Infrastructure where he was involved in the asset management and financing of power and airport projects, and he also previously held a similar role at AES Corporation, a Fortune 500 global power company.
