AllianzGI launches second Sterling infrastructure debt fund

Allianz Global Investors (AllianzGI) has launched its second UK Infrastructure Debt Fund, which is aimed at institutional investors and will invest in core UK infrastructure assets, including primary brownfield and greenfield transactions within the transport, energy and social infrastructure sectors.

Like AllianzGI’s pioneering, first UK Infrastructure Debt Fund, this new vehicle allows a broad range of investors, including small and medium sized pension funds and institutions, the opportunity to access the long-term, high quality, stable cash flows that investments in infrastructure provide. 

Adrian Jones, UK Infrastructure Debt, Director, says: “Following the success of our first UK infrastructure debt fund, we are delighted to launch our second sterling infrastructure debt fund, which is approaching its first close. Having helped ‘prove the concept’ of infrastructure debt as an asset class suitable for institutional investors over the last few years, we are delighted that through launching two sterling funds, we have provided institutional investors with the opportunity to invest in real, attractive assets combined with a compelling investment opportunity.”
AllianzGI has now committed over GBP1 billion on behalf of its clients into UK infrastructure projects. This portfolio includes the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route and M8 road projects in Scotland, university accommodation in Hull, Nottingham and Exeter, the A1/A4/A5/DBFO2 project in Northern Ireland, Dover Port and M6 Toll road.
Since 2012, AllianzGI’s infrastructure debt business has committed over GBP9billion on behalf of clients into 45 infrastructure projects across 14 countries and has closed 10 deals globally in 2017 alone.
