Guggenheim Partners has expanded its real estate and infrastructure investment platform by introducing a dedicated North American infrastructure investment team.
The initiative will be led by Henry Silverman, who joined the firm in early 2012 as vice chairman of Guggenheim Investments.
Silverman has been named as global head of real estate and infrastructure, responsible for managing and coordinating activity for the firm's entire real estate business.
The infrastructure investment team is led by William Reid, senior managing director, and includes Michael Madia, managing director and operating partner; Justine Gordon, managing director and head of acquisitions; Vince White, vice president of due diligence and asset management; and James Gabriel, vice president of acquisitions.
The infrastructure team will invest across the capital structure including equity, structured equity and debt-related products, with an initial focus on core energy infrastructure assets in the US, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean, the firm said.
Headquartered in New York and Chicago, IL, Guggenheim Partners has over $170 billion in assets under management.
