Macquarie Infrastructure Debt Investment Solutions (MIDIS) has promoted Kit Hamilton and Tim Humphrey to co-heads of the business, replacing co-founders James Wilson and Andrew Robertson. 

Hamilton joined MIDIS in 2012, the year it was set up, having previously worked at Macquarie Capital’s infrastructure debt advisory team and at Dresdner Kleinwort. Humphrey (pictured), a qualified actuary, joined in 2013 having previously worked at corporate finance firm TradeRisks and KPMG. 

The roles will be based in London and include managing MIDIS’s main products, its UK inflation-linked debt funds, and the Global Infrastructure Debt Fund. Hamilton and Humphrey will also continue their respective previous roles heading the investment team and investor solutions team.

Wilson will continue as chief investment officer of MIDIS. Robertson, who was based in Zurich, has relocated to Sydney, where he will continue to work with MIDIS as well as the broader Macquarie Specialised Investment Solutions business.

MIDIS also announced on Monday (25 June) that Stephen Allen has joined the MIDIS investment committee following his retirement as chief risk officer of Macquarie Group.

Macquarie established MIDIS in 2012 to give investors access to investment grade infrastructure debt. It now has around 48 staff.

It has provided financing for projects including the High Speed 1 rail link connecting London with the Channel Tunnel, a group of Spanish solar plants operated by Sonnedix, and onshore wind farms in Scotland and England.
