Infranity’s AUM in sustainable infrastructure go over €10 bn

Infranity, an asset management company that specialises in sustainable infrastructure investments, has broken through the €10 billion mark in assets under management, an achievement the group said reflected “its strong track record, its selectivity in the investment process and its successful strategic partnership with the Generali insurance group”.

Infranity’s strategy has been to invest in sectors  such as the energy transition, digitalisation, green mobility, environmental infrastructure and the improvement  of social infrastructure in the health and education sectors.

“The €10 billion milestone underscores the growing demand for sustainable infrastructure investments and the special character of the asset class, that delivers attractive risk-adjusted returns, resilience to shocks, significant diversification and strong ESG contribution,” said Philippe Benaroya, CEO and co-founder, Infranity. “In the race to mitigate climate change, Infranity’s infrastructure assets are a key enabler of the adaptation to a low carbon economy.”

Now that it has reached €10.4 billion AUM, the company plans to scale up its growth trajectory and accelerate the pace of investments in the coming years, capitalising on the significant pipeline of attractive infrastructure projects.

The progressive expansion of its product range “will ensure the company keeps offering appealing strategies and attracts investors from new regions across the globe, while continuing to pursue its ambitious sustainability goals,” Benaroya said.

Infranity has also just crossed the €1 billion mark in Infrastructure Equity Investments, with overall commitment to the equity strategy approaching €1.5 billion.

Infranity was set up in 2018 by Benaroya with co-founders Alban de La Selle and Gilles Lengaigne. The strategic partnership with Italy’s Generali Investments provided “deep expertise and large scale to our activities in a very supportive environment for Infranity to thrive and progressively gather a broad client base”, the company said.
