The firm’s four advisory principals have a combined 80+ years’ experience across energy, resources and infrastructure disciplines gained from their time in senior roles at UBS, BAML, Goldman Sachs, ABN AMRO, RBS and Macquarie Bank.
Since inception, we have been focussed solely on the infrastructure, energy and natural resources sectors, and are recognised as a trusted independent advisor to ASX100 companies, governments, funds and developers across these sectors.
With a team of over 40 professionals ICA Partners brings deep expertise to the areas of strategic advice, M&A, debt and equity advisory, PPPs, project finance, takeover defence and capital raisings.
