Deutsche Bank closes EUR 2 Billion Investment Vehicle focused on European Infrastructure Assets

Deutsche Bank today announced the establishment of an investment vehicle involving major international institutions to invest up to EUR 2 billion in European infrastructure assets.  The vehicle was set up by Deutsche Bank’s Structured Capital Markets Group (SCM), part of the bank’s Global Markets division.

The closing of this investment vehicle follows several successful investments by the bank’s SCM Group in highly attractive infrastructure assets.  These include East Surrey Holdings, owner of the UK water supply company Sutton & East Surrey Water, and the financing of Perez y Cia’s buy-out of selected minority interests in Grup Maritim TCB, owner of container terminal concessions in Barcelona, Valencia and selected other locations.

The focus of the vehicle will be to make investments in infrastructure assets across Europe in the public services and transport sectors.

Rajeev Misra, Head of Global Credit Trading, said “This innovative investment vehicle positions Deutsche Bank and its clients at the leading edge of developments in the rapidly developing market for the private financing of infrastructure across Europe.”
