Irish Infrastructure Fund
The Irish Infrastructure Fund provides institutional investors globally with a unique opportunity to invest in the Irish infrastructure sector.
The fund was established in 2011 by Irish Life Investment Managers Limited, Ireland’s largest domestic pension fund manager; the National Pensions Reserve Fund, who are the seed investor; and AMP Capital Investors (UK) Limited, the fund’s Infrastructure Investment Manager, who is responsible for the infrastructure portfolio investment activities of the fund.
The fund focuses on infrastructure assets being privatised by the government and commercial state enterprises, privately-owned infrastructure assets and new investment projects. The fund aims to provide longer term investors with a stable return, from a combination of income yield and capital growth, by investing in a portfolio of high-quality infrastructure assets which underpin the Irish economy.

Infrastructure offers investors increased portfolio diversification and lower volatility compared to other asset classes
The Irish Government has publicly committed to raising €3 billion from the sale of publicly owned assets by the end of 2013, enabling the fund to offer infrastructure investors a unique opportunity to acquire high quality core infrastructure assets from a committed seller at reasonable prices
The fund has significant local support, with Ireland’s National Pensions Reserve Fund, already having committed up to €250 million to the fund
