Swiss Life Asset Managers has launched a private infrastructure fund for both private and institutional investors.

These will include companies involved in wind and solar parks, hydropower plants, recycling companies, data centres, fibre networks, district heating networks, railway wagons and private hospitals.

The fund launch is Swiss Life Asset Managers’ first open-ended private infrastructure fund.┬áThe fund is actively managed without reference to an index.
