David McCallumBoard of the General Partner
David McCallum, Director Deutsche Craigs Limited and a Director of the New Zealand Social Infrastructure Fund. He’s been Director of Debt Capital Markets and Hybrids at Craigs Investment Partners and Director of Investment Banking at ABN AMRO Bank N.V., where he handled a range of investment banking activities – from mergers and acquisitions to infrastructure finance.
David, who is originally from Taranaki and got his Masters in Commerce and Administration degree in Accounting and Finance at Victoria University in Wellington, has always appreciated the disciplines of finance. He arranges and lead manages public debt and hybrid issuers, and has worked with major senior debt issues, including those by Contact Energy and Kiwi Income Property Trust. David feels that impact investing offers an opportunity to mobilize money for social and environmental challenges in a time when public spending can be constrained. He also believes that private sector financing can add a varied rigor to the process of social change and a different perspective on outcomes.
