Charindra Pathiwille to lead Deloitte’s EMEA infrastructure M&A team

19 October 2018

Deloitte has appointed Charindra Pathiwille, partner in the firm’s financial advisory transaction services team, to lead its infrastructure M&A team across Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA).

Charindra has over 11 years’ experience in the market, advising infrastructure funds, direct pensions and insurance investors on UK and European transactions, with a particular focus on PFI/PPP, utilities, distribution networks, road assets, airports and telecoms.

Charindra will lead the EMEA hub of Deloitte’s infrastructure M&A services, working alongside Craig Walter as lead of the Americas hub, with both reporting into James Riddell, the Sydney-based leader of the Asia Pacific hub and overall global infrastructure M&A leader. Charindra worked closely with Jason Clatworthy, who recently retired from the firm.

In the UK, Deloitte has a team of six partners and 20 directors, senior managers and managers focused on infrastructure M&A, with sector-focused teams in markets such as Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Belgium, Portugal and the Nordics.

Charindra Pathiwille said: “The overall appetite for infrastructure investment remains strong, as seen by recent fund raising trends. The ever-competitive European infrastructure M&A market will present some exciting opportunities and challenges as more investors start to look at ‘core plus’ assets and political and economic uncertainties unfold.

“We mobilise cross border teams to cover overseas transactions for clients based out of London, which provides relationship and local knowledge deal support. Our global hub approach provides clients with direct and efficient access to a vast network or professionals, and ensures quality and consistency from transaction to transaction.”

Nick Prior, Deloitte’s global infrastructure and capital projects leader, said: “With his extensive experience and deep understanding of the market, we are delighted that Charindra will be leading and driving forward our EMEA infrastructure M&A business.

“Europe is the largest market in terms of capital deployed by financial investors, and fundamental to our global infrastructure M&A strategy. As a firm we are committed to continue to invest heavily in this sector, in order to build on our success to date and the ever-growing market opportunity.”
