IFM agrees Samsung tie-up

20 April 2017 Australian investor IFM Investors has agreed a deal with Samsung Asset Management to create a new infrastructure debt fund.

The two organisations are launching a US$480m fund that will target investments in overseas infrastructure debt assets on behalf of Korean institutional investors.

Among the projects to be targeted by the fund are PPP schemes, as well as projects in a variety of sectors such as energy. The first investment to be made by the fund is a power plant in California.

“We are concentrating on exploring investment opportunities to expand alternative investments such as power plants, airplanes, hospitals, renewable energy, infrastructure, etc,” said Samsung Asset Management’s chief executive Sunghoon Koo.
