Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners’ new fund, Copenhagen Infrastructure New Markets Fund I (CI NMF I), reached final close with commitments of US$ 1.0 billion.
CI NMF I will primarily invest in greenfield renewable energy infrastructure projects in the fast-growing economies across Asia and Latin America as well as certain countries in Eastern Europe. With a term of ten years and a “build-and-exit” strategy, the fund will participate in completing late stage development, finance construction, and ultimately divest once assets are operational.
The final close follows a first close at US$ 700 million in May 2019 with the four cornerstone investors, PensionDanmark, Arbejdsmarkedets Tillægspension (ATP), KLP, and Lægernes Pension & Bank. The CI NMF I obtained commitments from institutional investors primarily comprised of pension funds, insurance companies, and family offices.
