Atlanta-based manager of alternative investment products Infinity Capital Partners and boutique investment bank Perella Weinberg Partners have teamed up to invest as much as $100 million in transportation.
The new strategy capitalizes on one of Infinity’s strengths: The firm’s Infinity Asset Management subsidiary manages a pair of rail-leasing hard-asset funds. IAM, along with some funds within Perella Weinberg's Asset-Based Value Opportunity Strategy, have formed a new joint-venture, Infinity Transportation, which will focus on rail leasing, as well as adding new transportation-related assets to Infinity’s oeuvre.
“This joint venture is the culmination of a long-term vision to extend our highly-successful business model from the rail industry to the broader transportation universe,” Gene Martini, managing member of Infinity Capital, said.
