AIP Infrastructure II receives commitment from a consortium of Swiss institutional investors
AIP is pleased to announce that a consortium of Swiss institutional investors has made a significant commitment to AIP Infrastructure II, the latest AIP investment fund focused on energy transition assets in Europe and North America. The commitment was made with the help of InPact Partners, an alternative investment advisor based in Switzerland, who has brought together the Swiss institutional investors including Retraites Populaires, Vaudoise, and CPEG, with additional investors set to join during the first half of 2021. These investors share the same long-term risk/return objectives for the energy transition asset class as well as a strong focus on ESG.
“Our public institution as well as our partners wish to continue to invest in attractive and sustainable infrastructure assets, while optimizing management costs. In addition, our investments in the AIP fund are an extension of our responsible investment policy and the recently implemented climate strategy.”, confirms Jean-Christophe Van Tilborgh, Head of the Investments Division at Retraites Populaires.
In November this year, AIP announced that Storebrand was to become the first international partner to join the AIP platform, as a co-owner and co-investor. With the commitments from PKA, PenSam, Storebrand, and the Swiss institutional consortium, AIP Infrastructure II has now reached its target commitment and is set to reach the EUR 4 billion hard cap for the fund.
“The latest commitment to AIP from renowned Swiss investors is a further validation of the AIP platform, our team and the successful investment strategy executed over the past 8 years. We are pleased to welcome the Swiss institutional consortium to the fund and look forward to continuing to deliver strong risk-adjusted returns to all of our investors”, says Kasper Hansen, Managing Partner of AIP Management.
