General Atlantic, a global growth investor, and Actis, a global investor in sustainable infrastructure, have announced that the firms have entered into a definitive agreement under which General Atlantic will acquire Actis.

Actis, boasting around US$12.5 billion in Assets Under Management (AUM), has a proven history of providing competitive returns for institutional investors and fostering positive impact in the areas it operates. With over US$25 billion raised since its inception and more than 140 investment professionals across 17 global offices, Actis focuses on supporting structural themes for long-term, fair growth in critical infrastructure related to energy, digitalization, and supply chain transformation. In an agreement, Actis is set to become the sustainable infrastructure arm within General Atlantic's global investment platform. This acquisition enhances General Atlantic's strategic diversification by introducing sustainable infrastructure as a distinct and complementary offering alongside its existing capabilities in Growth, Credit, and Climate. Following the integration, General Atlantic is poised to manage approximately US$96 billion in AUM across sustainable infrastructure, real estate, growth equity, and credit. This partnership aligns with both firms' strategic diversification goals, combining real assets with a variety of investment strategies.
