Hamilton Lane names Partners Group veteran to lead new Sydney office

James Martin joined Hamilton Lane to lead the private markets manager's business in Australia and New Zealand from its newly established office in Sydney, a Hong Kong-based spokeswoman for the firm said.

Mr. Martin was a vice president, focused on institutional sales and deal origination, with Partners Group in Sydney. A spokeswoman for Partners Group said the opening was filled by a more junior professional.

Sydney is Hamilton Lane's eighth overseas office, and its fourth in the Asia-Pacific region. The firm had $342 billion in assets under management and supervision as of March 31.
