SLFL GIO II: capital commitments received in the amount of EUR 1.2 billion. Fund already over 60% invested.
Swiss Life Asset Managers successfully concluded raising capital for its second infrastructure fund, Swiss Life Funds (Lux) Global Infrastructure Opportunities II (SLFL GIO II), at the end of May. The fund now has equity capital commitments in the amount of EUR 1.2 billion. Swiss Life Asset Managers thus closes its second proprietary infrastructure fund vehicle, currently invested in seven infrastructure projects. In addition to the Swiss Life Group as anchor investor, numerous other institutional investors are participating.
Chris Manser, Head of Infrastructure Investments, comments: “With total investor commitments of over
EUR 1.2 billion we have significantly exceeded our original target of EUR 1 billion, and have been able to markedly increase the share of third-party investors over that of our first infrastructure fund. We are very pleased with the development of the fund, which is already over 60% invested.” Further investments are planned in the coming months so as to be fully invested in a total of 10 to 12 companies during the next year.
The 25-year fund focuses on direct investments in minority participations of up to 50%, primarily core infrastructure investments in Europe and North America. This comprises the regulated networks, transport, energy, renewable energies, telecommunications and social infrastructure sectors.
As of 31 May 2018 Swiss Life Asset Managers has infrastructure moneys in the amount of around EUR 2.6 billion under management.
