Swiss Life AM Targets Renewables

Swiss Life Asset Managers’ (AM) latest fund will be targeting asset-heavy companies in “future-proof” sectors, including renewable energy and digital infrastructure. The private market offering – the Swiss life Funds (LUX) Global Infrastructure Opportunities IV SCSp, SICAV-RAIF (GIO IV) fund – is categorised as Article 8 under the EU’s Sutainable Finance Disclosure Regulation. Companies will be selected according to their mature cash flows, with limited volatility and calculated growth potential. GIO IV will primarily invest in OECD markets to build a diversified portfolio across Core / Core + infrastructure sectors, which are providing essential products and services to the economy and industries. “Core / Core + infrastructure remains the backbone of our society and, in an ever-changing world, our flexible mid-market investment mandate allows us to seamlessly pivot across sectors and geographies and to efficiently deploy capital and deliver expected returns,” said Gabriele Damiani, Head of Core Infrastructure at Swiss Life AM. The closed-end fund has a target size of €2.5 billion (US$2.7 billion) and is aiming for a first close in Q1 2025. Last month, Fabian Hürzeler – former Head of Real Estate Data and Digitilisation at Swiss Life AM – was appointed CEO of the firm in France, succeeding Frédéric Bôl, who had held the position for 15 years. Bôl remains with the firm as Vice Chairman of the Supervisory Board.
