Swedish private equity group EQT Partners AB has plans to raise a new multibillion euro infrastructure fund, which would be the first infrastructure fund for the firm after EQT Infrastructure I and II.
According to sources, the fund would invest in companies within power generation, electricity and gas networks, airports, rail transportation, ports, storage, waste, parking facilities, telecommunication towers and infrastructure-related services.
The new fund probably won't have a typical 10-year structure, with investors instead committing money for an indeterminate period.
The typical equity investment opportunity for EQT ranges between €50 million and €250 million.
The EQT Infrastructure team consists of 22 Investment Advisory Professionals based in Helsinki, Munich, New York, Stockholm and Zurich.
EQT is a Swedish private equity group of 17 funds with €22 billion in raised capital. Together with a network of industrial advisors, the firm invests in equity, mid market, infrastructure and credit in Nordic countries, DACH, Greater China and North America, with a focus in industrials, consumer goods, technology, media and telecommunications, health care and services.
