Loyens & Loeff advises DIF Capital Partners on EUR 1 billion Core Infrastructure Fund II

Loyens & Loeff advised DIF Management B.V., an independent infrastructure fund manager, on Dutch and Luxembourg legal and tax aspects of the setting up, structuring, fundraising and closing of DIF Core Infrastructure Fund II.

abstract - Deal DIF - June

DIF CIF II targets equity investments in the small- and mid-sized economic infrastructure market in pre-dominantly telecom, transportation and energy. DIF CIF II focuses on resilient companies and platforms that have a clear buy-and-build strategy – all with an asset-heavy business model. Its investments typically have medium-term contract cover and strong value enhancement potential. The fund targets both greenfield and operational investments, with a key focus on Europe and North America.

The fund closed above its target fund size of EUR 1 billion, an amount that is more than twice that of its successor fund, DIF CIF I, which held its final close in November 2017 at €450 million.

We congratulate DIF with this successful fund raise!
