FIRSTavenue would like to congratulate Star America Infrastructure Partners on the final close of Star America Infrastructure Fund II (the “Fund”), a North American focused greenfield infrastructure fund.

The Fund surpassed its target of USD 600 million closing with USD 700 million of capital commitments which was backed by a diversified range of global institutional investors including insurance companies, pension funds, foundations, and family offices among others.

The Fund closed at more than double the size of Fund I (USD 300m) marking this as Star America’s largest fundraise to date.

Paul Buckley, Managing Partner & CEO at FIRSTavenue said: “We congratulate the Star America 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 Star America.”

FIRSTavenue acted as Placement Agent in all territories globally excluding North America.
