DIF raises €1.9bn

The Dutch investment manager has closed its biggest fund yet in its infrastructure fund series.

DIF has corralled a total of €1.9 billion in the final close of its fifth infrastructure fund, DIF V, surpassing its €1.5 billion fundraising target.

DIF V, launched with an original hard-cap of €1.75 billion that was later raised to €1.9 billion, will be invested in equity investments in public-private partnerships (PPP), regulated assets and renewable energy projects. In addition, it will target both greenfield and brownfield projects in Europe, North America and Asia-Pacific.
