Antin Partners closes midcap fund at €2.2bn

Antin Infrastructure Partners has announced that it has closed its first dedicated mid cap fund at €2.2 billion.

The fund will target infrastructure investment opportunities in the energy and environment, telecom, transport and social sectors across Europe and North America. Antin says €2.2 billion hard cap was established at the first closing in recognition of the significant investment opportunity in the mid cap segment and to facilitate commitments from several new investors, particularly in North America and the UK.

Antin has now completed six fundraises since its inception, securing a total of approximately €17 billion in fund commitments.

Alain Rauscher, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Partner of Antin Infrastructure Partners, said: “Antin is excited to be returning to its roots with its new mid cap fund. With many prominent infrastructure managers leaving the mid cap segment due to fund size growth, this area is increasingly underserved and presents a significant opportunity for Antin. We have already built a robust pipeline of mid cap investment opportunities ready to be actioned in short order, capitalising on our experience, track record, team and origination capabilities.”
