AMP Capital has raised US$2.4bn (€2.25bn) for its global infrastructure platform at final close.

The manager said more than 50 institutional investors committed to its global mandate.

The platform, which includes the AMP Capital Global Infrastructure Fund and the relaunched Strategic Trust of Europe (SITE), was backed by investors in the UK, the US, Canada, Japan, Belgium, Denmark, Middle East, Ireland, Australia, Spain and Finland.

SITE was converted from an open-ended fund to a closed-end vehicle.

Global head of infrastructure equity, Boe Pahari said: “Our focus on assets in the middle market has seen us secure a compelling range of investments already.

“With our sector, geography and asset management expertise, along with an encouraging global deal pipeline for infrastructure, we are looking forward to securing more key assets and strong returns for our investors.”

The platform has added four new assets to its portfolio, including Axion, a telecommunications infrastructure in Spain bought in August. An emergency rescue and response service in the European and UK offshore oil and gas and offshore wind industries was also bought last year.
