Infra dig for Standard Life
February 9, 2017

SL Capital Partners, a Standard Life Investments company, announces the final close of its inaugural infrastructure fund, SL Capital Infrastructure Fund I.

It says the fund secured 516 million of commitments, ahead of its initial 400 million target, from a diverse cross section of financial institutions, local authority pension funds and family office investors from the UK, Europe and North America. Standard Life was a significant supporter, backing infrastructure investment across the UK and Europe.

The team, led by Dominic Helmsley, targets direct investment in mid-market core infrastructure transactions in the UK and north-west Europe. The fund offers long-term infrastructure returns, working in close alignment with investors.

The fund has already committed 37 percent of its capital to four investments as the majority shareholder: Auris Kaasunjakelu, a gas distribution business with 570 kilometres of pipelines in Helsinki and 11 other cities in Finland; Nordic Power AS, a portfolio of 13 small scale hydroelectric plants in Norway; and two UK rail investments in partnership with Rock Rail, being a new fleet of Siemens trains on the Great Northern franchise out of Moorgate station in London and new Stadler intercity trains for the Liverpool Street-based East Anglia franchise.
