Your trusted guide through this thriving, diverse and complex niche

Our Sectors

The Infrastructure, Energy and Real Assets sector is constantly evolving, with new technology, regulation and international development shaping the possibilities for those within it.

An organisation’s needs can be tremendously specific, and require its search partner to have an intricate understanding of its particular sub-sector.  Similarly, an individual may have aspirations to traverse the space, needing a partner with the relevant industry contacts and the experience of having guided others on similar journeys in the past.

One Search is a company of experienced Consultants with deep expertise in one or more of the following areas:

Structured Finance

The undisputed market leader in this space, we have longstanding relationships with the biggest and best banks in the market, including (but not limited to) SMBC, Credit Agricole, Mizuho, Macquarie, HSBC and RBC.

Private Equity

Active on both the project investment side and with the major buyout houses in the industry, recent successes with the likes of InfraRed, First Reserve, CDPQ, 3i and JLIF are just the tip of the iceberg.

Infrastructure Debt Funds

Our name is synonymous with the build-out of these institutional investor platforms globally, since they started coming direct to the Infra Debt market around 2012.  We have built out entire platforms for the likes of Allianz Global Investors, MetLife and Hastings Funds Management, and this only scratches the surface.

Real Estate

We work on a variety of Real Estate specific mandates across the full spectrum of Private Equity, Real Estate Finance and Advisory, with clients including GreenOak, Europa Capital, Legal & General Investment Management, and Ernst & Young.

Corporate Finance & Advisory

With coverage across Bulge Bracket M&A teams in Infra/PUI/Natural Resources, through Big 4 Corporate Finance franchises and into some of the best renowned advisory boutiques, our clients include Goldman Sachs, RBC, Macquarie, Ernst & Young and Operis, to name but a few.

Financial Modelling

As one of the core skill sets for professionals coming into the industry at an entry level, Financial Modelling is something we take a keen interest in.  We manage positions from graduate entry level through to Head of Financial Modelling roles for the likes of Operis and Ernst & Young, and we are regularly mandated with modelling-specific Analyst and Associate hires by a wide range of banks, funds and sponsors.
