Alceda has partnered with CBRE Clarion Securities to launch a new infrastructure fund on its Luxembourg-based UCITS platform.
The CBRE Clarion Funds SICAV – Global Listed Infrastructure Fund invests in a globally diversified portfolio of listed companies that derive a majority of their revenues or profits from the ownership, management, development or operation of long-term infrastructure assets. These assets include toll roads, airports, communication towers, oil and gas pipelines, water distribution pipelines, and electric transmission and distribution lines. The fund is managed by CBRE Clarion, a leading global investment firm.
The fund’s strategy draws upon a multi-step investment process that combines top-down research with bottom-up securities selection based on fundamental company analysis. The objective is to offer investors access to higher risk-adjusted returns relative to the broader global equity market.
Alceda, which is part of the Aquila Group, is a leading specialist in structuring solutions for traditional and alternative strategies.
The launch follows Brookfield Asset Management’s final close on Brookfield Infrastructure Fund III, raising $14 billion of equity commitments. In addition, Legg Mason launched a global infrastructure income fundmanaged by RARE Infrastructure, its Sydney-based specialist subsidiary.
