Richard Saint, formerly head of energy & infrastructure at RBS/NatWest, has joined infrastructure advisory firm London Bridge Capital as its new chief executive.
He joined the infrastructure-focused advisory firm two weeks back some nine months after leaving NatWest.
He replaces Elliott Mannis, who has been appointed chairman.
His appointment is part of plans by UK-focused London Bridge Capital to expand into the energy sector and continental Europe.
Mannis said Saint’s “appointment will allow London Bridge Capital to expand its focus on supporting energy and infrastructure clients, particularly in relation to optimising their capital structures and financing requirements.”
Saint added, “Energy and infrastructure companies are rightly focused on supporting their employees and customers in these unprecedented economic times. However, I do believe infrastructure assets will demonstrate their resilience as an asset class and we will continue to invest in these critical sectors, which will become even more important to support a global recovery.“
