A press release from the joint venture of ICONIQ Capital and Iron Point Partners pointed out that the fund acquires, develops, leases, and operates data centers.

Investors in the fund include Connecticut Retirement Plans & Trust Funds, Hartford; Louisiana Teachers' Retirement System, Baton Rouge; Rhode Island Employees' Retirement System, Providence; and New Mexico State Investment Council, Santa Fe; and University of Alabama System, Tuscaloosa, Ala.
