Meet the Team

Ian MacFarlane

I am a Director of JCRA and head of project finance and infrastructure for EMEA and Australasia regions, based in the London office. I currently have a team of seven who typically work on long-dated hedge solutions for the public sector (PPPs), renewable energy developers and infrastructure funds. My job is to manage the team and oversee the work we do for our clients, getting involved in the more complicated and significant transactions where required. I am also responsible, together with the team, for leading the marketing of our client base and business development. This provides me with the opportunity to meet our client base and explain the benefits of what JCRA do and the value we can bring to a transaction.

I joined JCRA in 1999 and developed our UK benchmarking business in project finance. This developed over the years and we now provide a far more strategic advisory role to clients over the wider project finance sector, focusing mainly on infrastructure. This business has grown significantly and we now advise clients in the UK, Ireland, Continental Europe, Eastern Europe, Africa, Australia and New Zealand. I joined the Group Board in 2010 and was part of the management team that completed the VMBO in 2012 and the subsequent MBO in 2017

Before joining JCRA, I was Head of Treasury at Daiwa Bank (Capital Management) for 10 years, where I was in charge of interest rate and foreign exchange risk management of the bank’s capital. Prior to Daiwa Bank, I worked for ANZ Bank in London and Melbourne for seven years in Treasury and financial engineering, after starting my career in Grindlays Bank.

In my spare time, I am an avid rugby fan, I also enjoy skiing, walking and travelling, and am a keen motorcyclist and general petrol head.
