Simultaneously with the expansion, Ostrum made two appointments.

This includes the appointment of Charles Regan as the head of Asia Pacific infrastructure real assets private debt.

Regan was the co-founder at Windward Capital Asia.

Moreover, Alistair Ho has been named as the head of co-lending for Asia Pacific at Ostrum.

He most recently served as the head of structured finance for Asia ex-Japan at Mizuho Securities.

Regan noted: “Asia-Pacific includes the fastest growing economies in the world and Australia, which is the 2nd largest project finance market in the world – all of which provides rising market for infrastructure debt.

“And infrastructure financing in Asia offers comparable risk to OECD investments.”
