The Digital Infrastructure team invests directly in and supports the growth of companies that are facilitating the increasing data consumption of businesses and consumers, including fibre networks and data centres.
Since returning to Macquarie in early 2019 (he previously worked at the firm from 2005-15), Oliver has led Macquarie Capital’s investment into Voneus, a UK rural Fixed Wireless to Fibre broadband developer and Onivia, a new SPV Macquarie established to acquire a 1m business unit Fibre to the Home network from MasMovil in Spain, creating Spain’s first wholesale only FTTH network.
Prior to re-joining Macquarie, Oliver was Corporate Finance Director at CityFibre, where he played a leading role in their transformative FTTH contract with Vodafone, infrastructure debt raise and sale to infrastructure funds.
Before CityFibre, Oliver was a commercial specialist at the Infrastructure and Projects Authority, part of the UK government. There he advised ministers on digital infrastructure policy and was responsible for the Digital Infrastructure Investment Fund, which saw the UK government commit £400m, matched by private sector investors on the same terms, to a commercial investment fund focused on investing in full fibre infrastructure.
