Northleaf Capital Markets, a private markets investor, has announced plans to establish an office in Melbourne, Australia.

The new office will be headed by Northleaf managing director Tom Irvine, who joined the firm in 2015.

Irvine, formerly the director of infrastructure at RBC Capital Markets in London and Sydney, will be supported by the firm’s senior associate Adrian Jetter in the new role.

Prior to joining Northleaf in 2017, Irvine served as the vice president of investment banking at J.P. Morgan in Frankfurt.

Both Irvine and Irvine focus on deal sourcing, diligence, execution and asset management across Northleaf’s infrastructure strategy.

Northleaf managing partner Stuart Waugh said: “A formal presence in Australia extends Northleaf’s worldwide network, enhancing our capabilities to provide investors with access to highly differentiated mid-market infrastructure, private equity and private credit investments globally.

“Establishing the Melbourne office also reflects our ongoing commitment to private markets opportunities in Australia and New Zealand and provides a local base from which to continue our successful, long-standing investment activities in the region, which began with our first Australian private equity investment in 1998.”

Northleaf currently manages over $10bn in private equity, private credit and infrastructure for public, corporate and multi-employer pension plans, endowments, foundations, financial institutions as well as family offices.

In addition to Melbourne, the firm also has presence in Toronto, Montreal, London, New York, Chicago, and Menlo Park.
