Fidelity International has created an infrastructure team within its private assets unit by appointing two executives to newly created roles, said a spokesperson for the firm.
Chantale Pelletier has joined Fidelity International as global head of infrastructure equity investments.
In this role, Pelletier will lead the development of Fidelity International's "infrastructure strategy, driving a new product pipeline across both infrastructure debt and equity," said a Dec. 8 news release.
Pelletier is based in London and reports to Andrew McCaffery, Global CIO.
She most recently served as global head of infrastructure and CEO of Schroders Capital Management (France), the release added.
A spokesperson for Schroders said: "Schroders Capital has aligned its infrastructure equity investment capabilities with Schroders Greencoat to offer clients a more seamless, global infrastructure equity investment experience across a broad range of infrastructure types and geographies. This is a natural evolution following Schroders' acquisition of Greencoat, a leading renewables and energy transition focused infrastructure business, in 2022."
Fidelity International also appointed Emma Haight as head of infrastructure debt, where she will be responsible for "driving the growth of Fidelity's infrastructure finance proposition, including the development and launch of infrastructure credit strategies and products," the release noted.
Haight is based in London and reports to Michael Curtis, head of private credit strategies.
Haight was formerly at Ares Management where "she set up a sustainable credit proposition," the release said.
A spokesperson for Ares declined to comment.
According to her LinkedIn account, Haight served as partner-infrastructure debt at Ares and left the firm in June 2023.
The spokesperson for Fidelity International added that the firm has invested in infrastructure "through our multiasset capability for some time, but no dedicated infrastructure funds just yet, hence the new team."
Fidelity International has more than $714.3 billion in total assets under management.
