Equitix completes the final close of its fourth core infrastructure fund

21 Jul 2017

Equitix has completed the fundraising of its fourth core infrastructure fund (Equitix Fund IV), closing today (Friday 21st July 2017) at the £750 million hard cap.

EF IV was launched in 2015 as a closed-ended, sterling-denominated fund and exceeded its target size of £500 million. It has secured equity commitments from UK and global investors including corporate and local authority pension funds, insurance companies, funds of funds, asset managers and investment consultants.

The fund is already 75% committed to assets in traditional core infrastructure sectors. These include the M25, Humber Gateway OFTO and HS 1 rail link – which Equitix last week agreed to acquire as part of a consortium alongside HICL and South Korea’s National Pension Service. Other sectors that the fund has invested in include social housing, student accommodation and waste & renewables.

Hugh Crossley, Chief Investment Officer, said:  “Equitix remains committed to providing investors with opportunities to make stable long term returns in core infrastructure assets. The UK continues to be an attractive market and we have identified significant deal flow in the UK and beyond over the next 24 months.”  

Equitix is planning to launch its fifth fund in Q4 2017.
