Heiko, who will be based in London, joins from Eiser Infrastructure Limited (formerly ABN AMRO Infrastructure Capital) where he was Investment Director responsible for acquiring and managing infrastructure assets across Northern Europe. Before joining ABN AMRO in 2007, he was head of the European infrastructure team at Bank of Scotland, where, over five years, he established the bank’s pan-European infrastructure business.
