Kirkland & Ellis Advises AMP Capital On The Raising Of Their USD6.2 Billion Infrastructure Debt Programme

Kirkland & Ellis advised AMP Capital on the raising of USD6.2 billion for the fourth vintage of its Infrastructure Debt programme (IDF IV) which closed today. This includes the final close of the AMP Capital Infrastructure Debt Fund IV (IDF IV) at its hard cap of USD4 billion together with co-investment rights and separately managed account commitments. This is AMP Capital’s largest closed-end fund ever and is believed to be the largest fundraise in the world for an infrastructure mezzanine debt strategy.

A team from Kirkland & Ellis advised on all aspects of the process from our London and U.S. offices.

The team was led by London funds partner Richard Watkins, and supported by associates Aisling Campbell, Kristin Hanshaw and Saleem Richmond; London regulatory partners Lisa Cawley and Adam Skinner; London tax partners Ian Ferreira and Frazer Money, supported by tax associate Loviisa Langdon and U.S. tax partners Bruce Gelman and Stephen Butler.

AMP Capital’s infrastructure debt team comprises 16 investment professionals located in London, New York and Sydney. Since 2001 the team has invested more than US$7.4 billion in 76 assets.
