BRIDGE platform triples AUM in less than three years

Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management’s BRIDGE (Benjamin de Rothschild Infrastructure Debt Generation) platform has now reached EUR1.2 billion and has tripled in size since the first closing of FCT BRIDGE I in July 2014 with EUR400 million.

The second closing of BRIDGE II has been completed, after a first closing in early December.
The fund brought together a group of new investors based in France, Belgium, Germany, Spain and Italy, as well as existing investors from the first-generation fund, FCT BRIDGE I.
BRIDGE II (Luxembourg law vehicle) is expected to reach its final closing by this summer, with similar amounts to FCT BRIDGE I.
In parallel, a new fund that will co-invest mainly with BRIDGE II over shorter maturities, BRIDGE II.2, also reached its first closing.
These two second-generation funds, managed by the same team of 11 London-based experts, aim to expand Edmond de Rothschild’s infrastructure debt platform offer with a view to capture new opportunities along the themes of trans-European transport networks, energy transition, digital access for all, upgrading some key utilities or intermodality, namely the transition from one mode of transport to another.
