Stafford Capital adds infrastructure fund

Stafford Capital Partners has launched Stafford Infrastructure Secondaries Fund V.

Stafford’s fifth infrastructure fund, the SISF V has a €1.3bn target and will provide access to a global infrastructure portfolio, with core infrastructure risk predominantly in Europe, North America and Australasia. The fund is classified as Article 8 under the Sustainable Finance Disclosures Regulation and will target energy transition assets while strongly limiting its fossil-fuel related exposure.

Stafford’s fourth infrastructure fund, SISF IV closed in August 2022 with €731m in commitments from 33 investors across 13 countries. It stands at 79% deployed with 16 deals in 17 positions as of January 2023. The pace of deployment means that the Stafford team expects to have invested the full fund amount 24 months ahead of schedule.

Dr. Ingo Marten, Managing Partner, Stafford Real Assets says, “The launch of our fifth dedicated infrastructure secondaries fund is a testament to Stafford’s ability to offer investors an attractive, diversified infrastructure exposure with stable yield. SISF V will provide global investors with a unique opportunity to tap into attractive risk-adjusted and consistent returns.”
