UBS raises $380m for second infrastructure fund

by Reg Clodfelter

UBS Global Asset Management has raised $379.9 million for its second infrastructure fund, UBS International Infrastructure Fund II, according to a filing with the SEC.

The vehicle, which launched in April 2013, has a $2 billion fundraising goal. Its predecessor had a final close in November 2008 after exceeding its fundraising goal by raising $1.5 billion.

The predecessor fund targeted established direct investment opportunities in OECD countries, investing in a variety of infrastructure assets including but not limited to transportation, utilities, energy and social infrastructure. The fund focused on brownfield investments, though up to 30 percent of its equity was made available for greenfield investments.

No target final close date for UBS IIF II has been disclosed.
