I’m confident that his proven expertise and broad experience in the market will support our international growth strategy as Aquila continues to expand in Europe and beyond," said Roland Schulz, Managing Director at Aquila Capital.

Aquila is also active and innovative in the growing arena of Real Assets, often with an SRI slant that is increasingly significant to investors," said Stuart MacDonald, Managing Director.
