  • Publish Date: Posted over 7 years ago

 

UBS Asset Management Infrastructure and Private Equity has set up its first infrastructure debt fund raising €570m ($640m). The Archmore Infrastructure Debt Platform was supported by 17 institutional investors, including pension funds, insurance companies and family offices from Europe and Japan. Low yields and interest rates were attributed to the strong interest, with investors wanting alternative investments such as infrastructure debt. Archmore IDP specialises in private infrastructure debt opportunities in Western Europe, mainly through direct lending. President of UBS Asset Management, Ulrich Koerner said, “Among investors, we see a strong and growing interest in alternatives. Infrastructure debt is an attractive alternative asset class that offers stable, long-term cash flows.”
