Leading financial risk management consultancy, JCRA, is pleased to announce the appointment of Rishin Patel as Head of the Project Finance and Infrastructure team based in London.

Rishin will join from RBS where he led a team servicing corporate clients across multiple industry sectors with a focus on risk management. He will be working closely with Ian MacFarlane, incumbent Head of Infrastructure who intends to retire from JCRA in 2019 and hand over full responsibility to Rishin later this year. 

Ian MacFarlane says, “We are delighted to attract someone of Rishin’s calibre to join the successful infrastructure team in London. He brings with him over a decade of investment banking and derivative experience which will further enhance our ability to provide clients with professional independent advice. Rishin is key to our growth plans and will drive JCRA’s infrastructure offering throughout the EMEA and Australasia regions.”

Institutional investment into infrastructure assets remains buoyant as investor’s appetite for long-dated yield continues. These are large complex transactions where the added value from independent hedging advice is very tangible.

“Making the move from investment banking into consultancy is something I have been considering for some time”, says Rishin. “JCRA’s reputation in the market is exceptional and their working style, culture and collaborative approach closely matches my own, so they are a natural fit for the next step in my career.

“I look forward to moving into a new environment and working closely with a team of high calibre colleagues to grow and develop the business while continuing to maintain the exemplary client service and derivative innovation the business is known for.”

Outside of the office, Rishin is a keen traveller, sports fan, and enjoys spending time with his two young boys aged two and four. He has also spent time working on a wide range of volunteering projects in his local community.

He will join the team on 16 April 2018.
