Guernsey firms guide Macquarie on launch of Europe's largest infrastructure fund of 2016

Posted: 21/09/2016

Guernsey firms Carey Olsen and Alter Domus have assisted Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets (MIRA) on the launch of its latest European infrastructure fund, Macquarie European Infrastructure Fund 5 (MEIF5). 

The fund closed with €4bn of investor commitments within eight months of its launch and was significantly oversubscribed.

This represents the largest private infrastructure fund raised in Europe in 2016 and takes MIRA global fundraising to US$29bn in the past five years. This included a North American infrastructure fund and a Pan-Asian infrastructure fund, both of which were also oversubscribed. 

MEIF5 will focus on investment opportunities throughout Europe in transportation, communications and utilities infrastructure as well as renewable energy.

The Carey Olsen team, led by Partner David Crosland, included Senior Associate Jan Johannsson and Associate Colin Calvert. Alter Domus has been appointed as administrator and depositary of the new fund.

Carey Olsen and Alter Domus previously assisted Macquarie on the launch of its debut Macquarie Infrastructure Debt Investment Solutions UK inflation-linked infrastructure debt fund, which attracted total commitments of £829 million.
