"We’re immensely proud of how we’ve evolved the global infrastructure platform to capture the best opportunities around the world, and the breadth of investors wanting to invest is testament to their belief in our investment strategy,” said AMP Capital Global head of infrastructure equity Boe Pahari in a statement. 

“Our focus on assets in the middle market has seen us secure a compelling range of investments already,” Pahari continued, adding that the platform has added four new assets in the past 12 months. It's global mandate is to invest in high-quality infrastructure assets offering the best relative value.

AMP Capital traces its roots back to its 1849 founding as the Australian Mutual Provident Society. Today, it is among Australia’s leading investment organizations, managing approximately A$160 billion in assets across fixed income, equities, multi-asset solutions and real estate.
