Allianz Global Investors (AllianzGI) has launched Allianz European Infrastructure Fund - RAIF (AEIF) for institutional investors, giving external clients access to Allianz Capital Partners' (ACP) infrastructural experience for the first time.
ACP has been investing equity in infrastructure for over a decade on behalf of Allianz insurance companies. With the AEIF, institutional investors can now invest in European infrastructure for the first time together with the Allianz insurance companies. Investors benefit from the broad industry knowledge of the investment team as well as the alliance's extensive network and reputation.
The fund has a target of €500m and will raise capital from institutional investors and pension funds. For future transactions, Allianz insurance companies will provide at least 50% of the capital for each transaction, with the remainder being provided by the AEIF.
The AEIF is maintained by experienced ACP investment specialists and distributed through AllianzGI's global network of sales experts.
