Infranode is the first Swedish long-term investment platform for infrastructure in the Nordic Region. It focuses on the transportation, energy, telecommunication and social infrastructure sectors in the less crowded small to mid-cap market with a typical investment ticket size of EUR 20-100m. Infranode can also do larger tickets through active co-investment program with its investors. It can take full ownership, majority but also minority, typically off-market, brownfield and greenfield projects, public and private.
There are EUR 200bn expected public investments in Nordic infrastructure in the coming 10 years.
Infranode is founded by Christian Doglia and Philip Ajina. Infranode is an affiliate of Areim, a leading Nordic real estate principal investor with approximately AuM SEK 20 billion. Infranode is fully owned by its Partners and Areim. The Investment Committee includes the Founder of Areim and former AP Funds Executives and AMF Senior Executive. Senior Advisors include a former Minister of Finance and a former Director-General of the Swedish Road Administration and Swedish Civil Aviation Administration, the former Deputy CEO of EON Nordics and a former Board Member of Statkraft.
Infranode and Areim are combining infrastructure and real estate, building a strong Nordic real assets manager to help institutional investors access the rapidly growing asset class. Infranode offers low risk and stable cash yield return. Its buy and hold strategy has a long term incentive model.
Infranode invests SEK 3.35 bn from first two closings and expects to reach the SEK 4bn mark in 2017. It has a strong pipeline in the Nordics with focus on off-market opportunities. Infranode completed one seed asset (Swedish district heating) and partnership agreement with Vasa Värme and advised AMF Pension on their GBP 240m first direct infrastructure investment in the Ormonde off-shore windfarm in 2015. Infranode’s investor base include the IMAS Foundation (IKEA), KPA Pension, Folksam, and the European Investment Bank. Following its recent 2nd closing, the team will be expanded with a Junior Investment Professional.
The current team of 5 investment professionals brings approx. EUR 20 bn international and Nordic experience and track record in energy & utilities, transportation and social infrastructure investments. The team shares offices with Areim and its team of 25 professionals. The culture is characterized by a strive for excellence, an exceptional drive, a flat hierarchy and a sound freedom.
