The recently established infrastructure firm, EISER Infrastructure Partners, has announced the acquisition of ABN AMRO Infrastructure Capital Management (AAICM) from Fortis Investments. EISER will subsequently take control of ABN AMRO Global Infrastructure Fund, which closed in 2007, re-naming it EISER Global Infrastructure Fund. EISER Infrastructure Partners was created by four former senior members of AAICM: Hans Meissner, Hafeez Ahmed, Jaime Hector and Vivian Nicoli.
EISER also announced it was planning to launch EISER Global Infrastructure Fund II as a follow-on vehicle with a proposed EUR 100 million investment from BNP Paribas. The fund is expected to target similar investment opportunities as its predecessor and look to raise EUR 1 billion in total equity commitments.
AAICM was established in 2008 from the combined entities of the previous Fortis Investments and ABN AMRO Asset Management. The firm was formed as a global asset management company with a specific focus on infrastructure investment in developed markets.
