FIRSTavenue would like to congratulate Equitix Investment Management on the final closing of their Equitix European Infrastructure Fund I (the “Fund”).

The Fund raised limited partner commitments of EUR 558mn, exceeding their initial Hard Cap of EUR 500mn. The Fund was backed by both existing and new investors with commitments from 11 LPs across 6 countries.

The Fund seeks to invest in small to mid-size “core” infrastructure assets across select European jurisdictions. The Fund has already deployed approx. EUR 250mn across assets in France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Belgium, Ireland, Poland and Finland and seeks to follow the success achieved across Equitix’s suite of infrastructure offerings.

FIRSTavenue acted as Placement Agent.

Tavneet Bakshi, Head of EMEA & Partner at FIRSTavenue said: “This raise marks an important milestone for Equitix as it definitively expands its business into Europe. We congratulate the Equitix team on this achievement and we are proud to have played a role in this success. We look forward to continuing our strong partnership with Equitix.”
