Campbell Lutyens expands APAC footprint with new Melbourne office
Campbell Lutyens, one of the leading global private capital advisors, is pleased to announce it has expanded its footprint in Asia-Pacific with the opening of a new office in Melbourne, Australia.
The office supports the continued growth of Campbell Lutyens’ fund placement, secondary advisory and GP capital advisory business, in response to increasing demand from fund managers and investors.
Campbell Lutyens now has a team of 21 based in Asia-Pacific. Peter Siapikoudis, who joined the firm as Managing Director, leads the Melbourne office, with responsibility for the Australasian region. Peter has extensive experience in infrastructure investment and was most recently the Portfolio Manager of Queensland Investment Corporation’s A$2 billion global core infrastructure fund as well as leading QIC Infrastructure’s global thought leadership programme and portfolio analytics function. He has held several investee company and advisory board seats throughout his career and is a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.
Andrew Sealey, CEO at Campbell Lutyens, said:
“We are delighted to expand further into Asia-Pacific and this new office reflects our commitment to our clients and investors in the region, over the long term. We look forward to continuing this momentum and, most importantly, providing new and existing clients with the market leading advice and service they expect.”
The Melbourne office complements the firm’s existing APAC offices, in Singapore, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Seoul. Campbell Lutyens has built a market-leading position in APAC over this period, with the team having raised or advised on more than $23 billion [USD] in fund placement and secondary advisory transactions over the last five years. Its local presence in Australasia, through its inaugural Australian office in Melbourne, will further enhance the depth and network of Campbell Lutyens’ relationships in that part of the world going forward.
