Infrastructure

Northleaf focuses on direct, long-term investments in infrastructure assets in OECD member countries.

Northleaf's innovative infrastructure investment program addresses the challenges inherent in building a diversified portfolio of infrastructure assets in a cost-effective manner. Northleaf's program provides access to a portfolio of mature, conservatively positioned infrastructure assets that is diversified by geography, industry sector and revenue framework.

Northleaf's infrastructure program benefits from an experienced team with an extensive global network and a consistent focus on: proactive deal sourcing across target geographies/sectors, valuation discipline and active portfolio management. The program’s investment activities are focused primarily on North American, European and Australian assets, with the flexibility to invest opportunistically in other member countries of the OECD, particularly those with developed markets that offer stable regulatory, economic and political environments. Northleaf’s infrastructure funds pursue investments across the contracted, regulated and volume-linked sectors, with a focus on small to mid-market assets with equity investments of $50-150 million. This strategic focus has enabled Northleaf to proactively source differentiated opportunities and generally avoid the broad, highly competitive auctions of large, marquee assets.
