Alternative investment group Stonepeak has hired Daniel Wong from Macquarie as head of Europe.

Wong, who takes on the role of senior managing director based in London, will oversee Stonepeak’s expansion in Europe and also join the firm’s executive committee.

Previously, Wong was global co-head of Macquarie Capital, the principal financing and investing arm of Macquarie Group.

Wong spent 22 years there in various roles, including serving as global head of infrastructure and energy. While at Macquarie, he led the acquisition of the Green Investment Group, focused on renewable energy.

Stonepeak, headquartered in New York, has approximately $46bn (€43bn) in assets under management across infrastructure and other real assets.

In addition to the group’s continued expansion in the continent, Wong will also focus on the firm’s capabilities on the energy transition and environmental, social and governance issues.

Previously, Stonepeak hired Daniel Zinic from placement agent First Avenue to lead investor relations in Europe.

‘Daniel brings tremendous experience as a business leader, sustainability advocate, and investor across a wide range of infrastructure and energy sectors,’ said CEO and co-founder Michael Dorrell.

Wong added: ‘The world as we know it must be rebuilt and reconfigured in a way that is more sustainable, less carbon intensive, more connected, and fairer for future generations. Meeting this imperative will require enormous amounts of capital and is one of the greatest investment opportunities of our generation.’
