Hamilton Lane is expanding its infrastructure investment capabilities with new senior appointments in Canada and Germany.

The firm sees growth and opportunity in the space and has created two new roles in its global real assets team: a managing director in Frankfurt, and a principal in Toronto, both reporting to head of Real Assets, Brett Burnett.

In Toronto, Taylor McManus becomes principal, having joined the firm in September 2023. His focus is direct, secondary, and primary fund investment opportunities across Canada and the United States. He has more than a decade of experience and was previously with Instar Asset Management and Macquarie Capital Markets Canada, where he gained significant expertise in middle-market infrastructure and private equity investments.

"Hamilton Lane has demonstrated tremendous growth recently, both within the infrastructure business as well as our Canadian presence more broadly,” he said. “I am focused on continuing to build the infrastructure investment business here, leveraging Hamilton Lane's global platform and long-standing reputation as a trusted capital partner."

In Frankfurt, Dominik von Scheven becomes managing director, responsible for all infrastructure equity investments in Europe. He joined the firm earlier this month.

Growth trajectory

Hamilton Lane has seen its infrastructure investment activities grow exponentially in the past five years.

Client demand has necessitated expansion to eight offices globally and a near-tripling of its headcount. The wider Real Assets Team comprises almost 30 people in five countries and the platform manages around $180 billion in assets, a significant slice of the firm’s overall $854 billion in assets under management and supervision (as of Sept. 30, 2023).
