Stafford Capital Partners invests €100m in DIF infrastructure V via secondary transaction

Stafford Capital Partners (Stafford), an international private markets investment and advisory group, has invested approximately EUR100 million through a secondary transaction in DIF Capital Partners’ (DIF) fifth flagship infrastructure fund, DIF Infrastructure V.

Stafford acquired the investment from a single UK corporate pension scheme. The pension scheme sold the stake following a change in strategy that has seen it exit several fund holdings across its private markets portfolio in recent years.

The investment marks the first LP secondary to be completed in the 2017-vintage infrastructure fund and sees Stafford acquire a position as the fund reaches fully invested status with significant progress in the asset’s development.

Stafford acquired the interest through its fourth infrastructure secondaries fund, Stafford Infrastructure Secondaries Fund IV (SISF IV). The investment is the 11th to be completed by SISF IV and brings the fund’s committed capital to approximately EUR280 million.
