Actis hits $1.23bn final close for Long Life Infrastructure Fund

Thursday, August 15, 2019

Laxman Pai, Opalesque Asia:

London-based emerging-markets investor Actis has wrapped up fundraising for its first longer-duration infrastructure fund.

Actis Long Life Infrastructure Fund (ALLIF) collected $1.23bn in commitments and can deploy about $2bn in total funding, including co-investments, said a press release from the investment firm with $12bn in assets under management.

ALLIF's investor base is comprised of leading institutional investors from North America, Europe, Latin America, Middle East and Asia.

Actis has established itself as an investor in the energy infrastructure space having committed more than $5bn to 34 investments across 25 countries - generating 25GW and providing electricity to nearly 90m customers.

"ALLIF is a complementary strategy to Actis' Energy business. ALLIF will originate operating infrastructure assets across Latin America, Africa, and Asia while driving operational improvements over a long term hold period," said the release.

The ALLIF business is led by Glen Matsumoto, who joined Actis in 2016 having previously been one of the three founding partners of EQT's infrastructure business.

ALLIF has already identified and prioritized an executable pipeline of approximately $8bn and has committed to investments which include a 100MW solar PV plant in the Atacama region of Chile which sells power to the Santiago Metro transit system and 137MW of operational wind generation assets located in Brazil.
