Global alternative asset manager Hamilton Lane has opened an office in Australia as part of the fast-growing firm’s global expansion.

Leading the new Syndey office will be former Partners Group executive James Martin, who joins as a principal and who will head up the firm’s business development in the region as well as client support services for its growing client base across Australia and New Zealand.

“We’ve been active in this region for nearly a decade, and are excited to be formally establishing a presence in Australia,” said Mario Giannini, CEO of Hamilton Lane, in a statement. “We believe this expansion will allow us to provide a deeper level of market coverage and client service, and we’re pleased to welcome James, who brings a strong understanding of the local market dynamics, challenges and opportunities.”

Prior to Hamilton Lane, Martin spent more than five years with Partners Group, where he focused on institutional sales and deal origination. Beforehand, he was an associate director of institutional business at Pinnacle Investment Management, and previously spent more than nine years at Macquarie Group. 

Founded in 1991 and headquartered in Bala Cynwyd, PA, Hamilton Lane is an independent alternative investment management firm providing private markets solutions to investors worldwide. It has more than $342 billion in total assets under management and supervision deployed across a range of private market strategies.
