AMP Capital  has appointed Niamh McBreen as an Investment Director to its Infrastructure  Equity asset management team, based in London, and Stasha Prnjatovic to the  newly-created role of Investment Director, Energy within the Infrastructure  Equity team in Sydney.

Ms McBreen is  part of the team that is responsible for asset management across AMP Capital's  European infrastructure assets and will report to David Rees, AMP Capital Head  of Asset Management for Europe.

Ms McBreen  joined AMP Capital on 1 July 2017 from UK Government Investments (UKGI), an  associated body of HM Treasury, where she was Executive Director working on  several portfolio assets including Network Rail, Highways England, NATS and Companies House.  Prior to that, Ms  McBreen spent 15 years at rolling stock lessor Alpha Trains and its predecessor  company where she held a variety of roles across business development,  procurement and corporate finance.

Ms Prnjatovic will lead the sourcing, onboarding and  asset management of Australian and New Zealand energy infrastructure assets on  behalf of AMP Capital's investors. She will report to Michael Cummings, AMP  Capital Head of Australia and New Zealand Infrastructure Equity Funds.

Ms Prnjatovic  joins on 17 July 2017 from New South Wales Treasury where she was Commercial  Director, successfully overseeing the A$34 billion privatisation of TransGrid,  Ausgrid and Endeavour Energy. Previously, Ms Prnjatovic was Investment Manager  at New South Wales Treasury, responsible for monitoring, reporting and  influencing the performance of the state's A$38 billion electricity sector.

AMP Capital  Global Head of Infrastructure Equity Boe Pahari said: "I'm delighted to  announce these two senior appointments to our Infrastructure Equity team in  London and Sydney. It reflects a business that is going from strength to  strength after the successful US$2.4 billion close of our global infrastructure  platform at the end of last year and our deepening infrastructure investment  capabilities in the energy sector.

"Niamh brings  a wealth of asset management experience, particularly across the transport and  energy sectors, and is a valuable addition to AMP Capital's European asset  management team. She has a proven track record driving business growth and deep  expertise across multiple operations functions including strategy, finance and  business development. Asset management is critical to the overall value we deliver  to our investors and our focus remains on growing and enhancing our assets.

"Stasha's  appointment follows the recent acquisition of a major stake in Endeavour Energy  on behalf of long-term client REST as part of the Advance Energy consortium,  and she will be invaluable when it comes to our existing energy investments  such as Powerco NZ and Evergen. Stasha's extensive experience and in-depth  understanding of the energy sector means she is well-credentialed to lead the  management of AMP Capital's energy assets for the benefit of our investors.”
