Stafford Capital Partners, which invests in and advises on private markets worldwide, has launched its fifth infrastructure secondaries fund, Stafford Infrastructure Secondaries Fund V (SISF V).

The goal of SISF V is to raise €1.3 billion so that LPs and GP-led secondaries and co-investments can get access to a diversified global infrastructure portfolio with core infrastructure risk mostly in Europe, North America, and Australasia. Additionally, investors will now be able to allocate the fund in USD as well as EUR.

The fund, which is categorised as Article 8 under the Sustainable Finance Disclosures Regulation, will actively target assets connected to the energy transition while strongly limiting its exposure to fossil fuels.

Dr. Ingo Marten, Managing Partner, Stafford Real Assets, said: “The launch of our fifth dedicated infrastructure secondaries fund is a testament to Stafford’s ability to offer investors an attractive, diversified infrastructure exposure with stable yield. SISF V will provide global investors with a unique opportunity to tap into attractive risk-adjusted and consistent returns.”

William Greene, Managing Partner, Stafford Infrastructure, added: “The rate of deployment across our SISF strategies in the last year has been quite swift, on the back of our very pro-active sourcing but also a growing secondaries market. With this new larger capital raise, we are seeking to maintain sufficient dry powder and capitalise on these attractive opportunities.”
