Northleaf reaches $1.5B in infrastructure capital commitments
Northleaf Capital Partners has announced that its growing infrastructure investment program has surpassed $1.5 billion in capital commitments across its OECD-focused fund and its recently expanded custom North American mid-market fund, which Northleaf designed and manages for a leading Canadian institutional investor.
As a key component of the firm’s $7 billion global private markets investment business, Northleaf’s infrastructure program is focused on direct, long-term investments in OECD countries, providing investors with stable, consistent cash flows from assets that deliver essential products and services.
“We are very pleased with the performance and growth of our infrastructure portfolio and the continued confidence demonstrated by investors in our team, investment strategy and track record,” said Stuart Waugh, Managing Partner of Northleaf. “Our innovative approach is designed to overcome the implementation challenges facing both large and small institutions seeking cost-effective access to long-term infrastructure investments.”
In recent months, Northleaf has further strengthened its global investment capabilities with the addition of two senior members to its infrastructure team: Matthew Woodeson as Managing Director, Infrastructure and Dimitrios Siomos as Director, Head of Infrastructure Asset Management. Matthew is based in Northleaf’s London, UK office and participates in all aspects of Northleaf’s infrastructure investment activities, with a primary focus on transaction origination, execution and asset management activities in the United Kingdom and Europe. Based in Northleaf’s Toronto, Canada office, Dimitrios leads and coordinates Northleaf’s infrastructure asset management activities globally.
Northleaf continues to grow its infrastructure program and is currently raising capital for its second OECD-focused fund, Northleaf Infrastructure Capital Partners II. The fund provides cost-effective access to a diversified portfolio of mature, conservatively-positioned infrastructure assets in OECD countries. The fund is focused on assets that generate stable, long-term cash flows and deliver incremental returns relative to conventional fixed income investments. The fund’s first closing will be held in Q4 2015.
