Our Approach


Over the years we developed a very successful approach to investing in sustainable real assets: it combines the discipline of infrastructure finance with the growth focus of private equity.

Through this approach we built large-scale asset portfolios and businesses from the bottom-up, capturing value for our investors along the way.

We call this infrastructure growth equity, and it is based on three pillars: insight, assets and growth.

INSIGHT

Our team is widely recognised as experts in the sustainable infrastructure sector, where we have been active for more than 12 years. Our deep networks and industry relationships give us privileged access to insights and deal flow.

We thoroughly cover only a few selected markets where we have either already established a platform, or are in the process of starting one.

Thanks to our focus in these markets we often see opportunities before they are widely marketed, and work to position ourselves early on and stay ahead of competition.

We originate most of our investments in off-market transactions, or invest in proprietary project pipelines that we have created and developed over time.

ASSETS

We are truly passionate about investing in sustainable real assets. Our team can count on 70 years of collective real asset investment experience.

Together we executed as principals 75 private transactions including acquisitions, project financing, joint-ventures, refinancings and exits.

We performed due diligence on more than 100 power and heating assets, and delivered more than 60 construction projects on time and on budget. Our portfolio so far has delivered power and heat in line with our pre-investment budgets.

GROWTH

We partner with top-class management teams to build and grow businesses around our assets:

  • We back entrepreneurial developers: we partner with the best developers in our focus markets, to help them build up their businesses and achieve real impact.
  • We invest in greenfield projects: together with our partners we grow our platforms through greenfield development, capturing value that would otherwise be left to third parties.
  • We expand and grow our platforms: we leverage the scale of our platforms and grow further through acquisitions. We also internalize operations management and services to gain further control on performance, gain better insights and capture additional value.
