Aware Super has opened its first international office in London this week, through which it will direct a $10 billion investment commitment in the UK and Europe. The fund’s deputy chief investment officer and head of international, Damien Webb, has relocated to London to spearhead the foothold, with an initial team of 15 investment professionals. Aware confirmed that it seeks to grow the office’s team to 30 over time.

Currently, the fund has $17 billion invested in the UK and Europe. With $160 billion in assets under management (AUM), Aware’s international expansion is set to help the fund achieve its $250 billion AUM growth strategy. Commenting on the office opening, Mr Webb said: “Due to our rapid growth trajectory, we believe the UK is a key platform from which we can further fuel our scale ambitions and diversify our portfolio through access to dynamic investment opportunities in new private markets. “The ability to access the UK’s deep investment talent pool will also further furnish our investment team’s capabilities,” Mr Webb continued.
