Andrew Bishop, a former Goldman Sachs managing is joining the $7.4 billion London-based infrastructure fund manager Alinda Capital Partners.

Bishop has over 12 years of investment banking experience, most recently with Goldman, which he joined in 2008 and where he focused on power, utilities and infrastructure investment banking. He will become a managing director at Alinda, effective April, based in Alinda's London office. In his new role, Bishop will “spearhead principal investment activity in core infrastructure assets in Europe.”

Alinda managing partner, Chris Beale, said in a statement, "We are excited about Andrew joining us. With his extensive experience and wide ranging contacts, he will enhance our investing activities in Europe."

Bishop joins Alinda partner Simon Riggall, Patrick Bastien, director, Per Kjellgren, director, and other professionals in Alinda's London office.

Alinda's investors are predominantly pension funds for government and private sector workers in the U.S., Europe, Canada, Asia and Australia, and include some of the world's largest institutional investors.

Investment funds managed by Alinda own two water utilities in the UK, South Staffordshire Water and Cambridge Water. Cambridge Water was acquired from HSBC in October 2011. Alinda's managing partner, Chris Beale, joined the board of BAA Limited in October 2011 following a purchase by Alinda's funds of shares in BAA from Ferrovial. Alinda has also invested in inland container terminals in the Netherlands and biogas production facilities in Germany, and has extensive infrastructure investments in the United States and Canada. In addition to the Greenwich and London offices, Alinda has offices in Houston and Dusseldorf.
