Stafford Capital Partners (“Stafford”), a leading private markets investment group with a global presence and USD 4.3 billion under management and advice, is pleased to announce the first investment of its new infrastructure fund, Stafford Infrastructure Secondaries Fund II (“SISF II”). SISF II is a specialist infrastructure fund focusing on secondary opportunities in core infrastructure assets.
Following a recent first close at EUR 94.5 million (USD 106.5 million), with EUR 44.5 million accepted to date. SISF II has immediately invested EUR 20m into a diversified portfolio of over 90 mature PPP-assets. Eight investors have come in alongside Stafford through Stafford Infrastructure Co-Investment I ("SICI I"), a new co-investment vehicle set up for this purpose. This investment is in line with our strategy to deploy capital swiftly into yielding core infrastructure assets.
