AMP Capital’s infrastructure platform exceeds target at close

AMP Capital has raised $2.4 billion (€2.3 billion) for its global infrastructure platform from European investors, breaking its $2 billion target.

The firm created the platform by re-launching its Strategic Trust of Europe as a closed-ended European fund and launching the Global Infrastructure Fund.

The platform has global investors, many based in European countries such as Belgium, Denmark, Ireland, Spain and the UK.

During 2016, the platform added four assets including an emergency rescue service for the European offshore energy industry, Esvagt.

It also added Group Oy, an energy infrastructure firm, Millennium Garages and Spanish telecoms infrastructure firm Axion.

“Our focus on assets in the middle market has seen us secure a compelling range of investments already,” said the firm’s global head of infrastructure equity, Boe Pahari.
