RGREEN INVEST, a leading independent French investment management company specialising in equity and financing for infrastructure projects related to the energy transition and climate change adaptation, announces the final closing of its INFRAGREEN IV fund. At a total of €670 million, the initial target of €500 million was largely exceeded.
True to its fast investment strategy, RGREEN INVEST has already invested, committed, or implemented more than €400 million of INFRAGREEN IV in green infrastructure projects across Europe. RGREEN INVEST expects to commit an additional 25% by the end of 2021. INFRAGREEN IV is an “article 9 fund”.
“We would like to thank our long-standing partners for their support and welcome the arrival of new French and foreign investors who have placed their trust in us despite the obstacles caused by the public health and economic context,” – Nicolas Rochon, Founder and CEO of RGREEN INVEST.
While the pandemic and the travel ban have challenged the conventional relations between a management company and its investors, RGREEN INVEST’s team rose to this challenge. More than a third of the amounts committed in INFRAGREEN IV come from international investors, a clear increase from the 20% in INFRAGREEN III.
Given the positive market dynamics, RGREEN INVEST is now preparing to launch its new impact fund: INFRAGREEN V, scheduled for the spring of 2022. Its main goal will be to pursue and accelerate adaptation to climate change by further diversifying the technologies and energies deployed across the European continent.
