Industry veteran to head Plenary’s new funds management business


Plenary Group has appointed industry veteran Julie-Anne Mizzi to lead its funds management activities across Australia and New Zealand.

Julie-Anne brings more than 30 years of experience to Plenary, most recently as Global Head of Social Care at AMP Capital, where she was integral in leading the growth of AMP Capital’s Community Infrastructure Fund for more than a decade.

Under Julie-Anne’s stewardship, the fund grew from an initial portfolio of four assets to now comprise 18 assets with an enterprise value of more than $8 billion.

Plenary’s Chief Executive David Lamming welcomed the appointment saying Julie-Anne will be tasked with establishing and growing a boutique funds management business in a way that complements Plenary’s current infrastructure investment and management activities.

“Our expansion into funds management is a natural evolution in the development and growth of our infrastructure activities,” Mr Lamming said.

“We couldn’t be more pleased to have Julie-Anne join us to lead this arm of our business – there is nobody better placed to lead a boutique funds management business focused on the infrastructure space.

“It is a logical step in the growth and maturity of Plenary as Australia’s leading infrastructure investor, developer and manager, as we’ll look to become a full-service diversified infrastructure business.

“In Julie-Anne we have one of the most experienced executives in the industry, and someone who will complement and enhance our existing capabilities as well as make a significant contribution to our corporate culture as we embark on this exciting new venture for our business.”

Julie-Anne was a partner at AMP Capital and in 2015 was named one of the 100 Women of Influence for her contribution to promoting women in infrastructure.

Julie-Anne will commence her new role with Plenary in September
