Connecticut Retirement Plans and Trust Funds (CRPTF) is planning to issue $300m (€250m) worth of commitments into real estate and infrastructure funds.

CRPTF is considering a $150m commitment to ISQ Global Infrastructure Fund III, a global fund which has so far raised $1.65bn of its $12bn fundraising target.

In a meeting document, the pension fund’s investment consultant Meketa Investment Group said the fund is expected to have an interim close at the end of this month, without disclosing an amount.

The fund’s manager I Squared Capital is expected to be making a co-investment of not less than 2% of the total commitments.

Fund III will have a companion co-investment vehicle designed for smaller investors and expected to have a $300m hard cap. Fund III targets value-add investments that can produce gross internal rate of returns of 15% to 20%.
