Kirkland & Ellis advised Marguerite, a leading European investment management firm, which recently launched Marguerite II, a pan-European infrastructure fund with commitments in excess of €700 million.
The fund will focus on investments in renewables, energy, transport and digital infrastructure and is a successor fund to the 2020 European Fund for Energy, Climate Change and Infrastructure. It will invest in the EU 28 member states and pre-accession countries. Commitments were received from the European Investment Bank, and five national promotional banks: the Polish Bank Gospodarstwa Krajowego, the French Caisse des Dépôts Group, the Italian Cassa depositi e prestiti, the German Kreditanstalt für Wiederaufbau and the Spanish Instituto de Crédito Oficial.
The Kirkland team was led by London-based investment funds partners Thomas Laverty (picture) and Aranpreet Randhawa.
