How the fund works.
As pioneers in infrastructure debt, we have dedicated specialists with skills and experience investing in the subordinated debt of defensive, non-cyclical infrastructure businesses headquartered in Western Europe, North America and Australia. Our experienced investment team directly structures and arranges subordinated debt using our strong proprietary deal flow through long standing sponsor relationships. We follow a detailed and rigorous due diligence program that has led to a successful track record for over 15 years. This approach delivers our clients lower volatility, strong risk-adjusted returns and consistent cash yields.
The third fund in our infrastructure debt fund series, AMP Capital Infrastructure Debt Fund III is a US$2.5 billion, 10 year closed ended fund. It aims to provide long term investors with a target return of 10% with a focus on current cash yield.
Experienced investment team which has generated consistent returns through economic cycles
The investment team represents one of the world’s most experienced subordinated debt arrangers, underwriters and investors. Based in London, Sydney and New York, the investment team has more than 176 years of combined experience arranging, investing and monitoring infrastructure debt investments across a range of sectors and geographies.
A successful track record in infrastructure debt investing
The infrastructure debt team has a track record of investing in debt of infrastructure businesses dating back to 2001. In its history, this investment team has invested more than US$3.8 billion in 60 infrastructure debt assets. AMP Capital is one of the longest standing participants in global infrastructure investments, with a prior track record commencing in 1988.
Extensive deal sourcing capability
With a key focus on originating and structuring tailored mezzanine solutions for infrastructure assets, the team is able to source attractive investment opportunities which are only available to our investors. These skills allow us to maintain our extensive global network of relationships with issuers, equity providers and financial advisory firms of private infrastructure debt.
Strong deal flow
Currently in the global infrastructure debt market there are strong deal flow opportunities with limited competition from alternative junior lenders. These factors provide the potential to generate attractive risk adjusted returns focused on cash yield and represent a compelling opportunity for infrastructure debt investors.
Demand for infrastructure (including road, rail, power, telecommunications and water) is set to continue to expand significantly over the next few decades, driven largely by global economic growth, changes in public policy and financing, technological progress, climate change, urbanization and growing population and congestion. Many parts of infrastructure systems in Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries are ageing rapidly, public finances are becoming increasingly unavailable, certain economies are facing increased fiscal deficits, and infrastructure financing has generally become more complex. In particular, as significant additional private and public capital is committed to greenfield infrastructure investment over the coming years, it is expected that opportunities to acquire brownfield infrastructure assets, either from the public sector or from private owners in secondary transactions, will also increase.
AMP Capital’s scale, widespread resources and brand provide the investment team with a unique competitive advantage in deal origination and execution. The investment team utilises the broader resources of the AMP Capital global infrastructure team, particularly the experienced industry research specialists. The team also has access to structuring and operating professionals with legal, tax and fund accounting skills.
