AMP Capital has raised $2.4 billion for its global infrastructure platform at final close, with more than 50 institutional investors committing to its global mandate to invest in high-quality assets offering the best relative value.
The platform, which includes the AMP Capital Global Infrastructure Fund and the relaunched Strategic Infrastructure Trust of Europe, has attracted global interest particularly from investors in Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Japan, the Middle East, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States.
The platform has added four new assets to its portfolio during the past 12 months: Esvagt, an emergency rescue and response service in the European offshore oil and gas and offshore wind industries; Adven Group, a provider of sustainable and business-critical energy infrastructure and services in Finland, Sweden and Estonia; Millennium Garages, the largest underground downtown parking system in the United States; and Axion, a provider of broadcasting and telecommunications infrastructure in Spain.
AMP Capital created the global infrastructure platform by converting Strategic Infrastructure Trust of Europe, or SITE, from an open-end to a closed-end European fund and launching the Global Infrastructure Fund. The existing assets in SITE — including Newcastle Airport, Angel Trains, Alpha Trains and Thames Water — provided a pool of seed assets for new investors into the platform.
