New investment club

Nordic club collaboration collects close to EUR 500 million

Under the umbrella the Nordic Investment Club, a new collaboration within alternative investments across Denmark, Sweden and Finland has been established to increase net returns and to put further emphasis on ESG matters for institutional Nordic investors. 

The details

The investment club had its first closing on September 30, and its members count several leading Nordic pension funds. Among the participants are Kåpan Pensioner, Elo Mutual Pension Insurance Company, Lærernes Pension and P+, Pension Fund for Academics. 

Approximately EUR 500 million will be invested with one of the world’s largest infrastructure fund managers, Antin Infrastructure Partners. Headquartered in Paris, Antin also has offices in London and New York and specializes in infrastructure investments within the energy and environment, digital, transportation, and social sectors.

The commitment is invested in the Antin Fund V, which is classified as an article 8 fund, i.e., a fund with investments that promote sustainable characteristics, pursuant to the EU regulation on sustainable financing.

The club will invest in infrastructure such as solar and wind farms, EV charging and rail.

The investment period began in Q3 2022 when the fund acquired a majority stake in Hamburg-based Blue Elephant Energy, a renewable energy platform focused on developing, acquiring, and operating solar and wind farms across Europe and Latin America. The company operates 67 solar and 13 wind power plants in eight countries with a power generation capacity of around 1.3 GW.
