Encavis Asset Management completes investment phase of the Encavis Infrastructure Fund II (EIF II)

  • Total investment volume of 1.13 billion euros
  • Total installed capacity saves 327,500 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year

Neubiberg/Munich, 12 December 2022 - Encavis Asset Management AG (Encavis AM) has successfully completed the investment phase of the Encavis Infrastructure Fund II (EIF II), an alternative investment fund for banks distributed exclusively by BayernLB. For the EIF II, which was launched at the end of 2017, a broad pan-European Renewable Energy portfolio was build. As a result, one of Germany's largest renewable energy funds is now fully invested with a capacity of almost 680 MW.

The fund's most recent investment activities took place in Germany. The EIF II was able to acquire two solar parks with a total capacity of 45 MW in Rhineland-Palatinate. One solar park is scheduled to be connected to the grid this year. The second park is expected to be connected to the grid in the first half of 2023. 

In total, the EIF II now has an optimally diversified portfolio of 22 wind farms and 21 solar farms in Germany, France, the Netherlands, Spain and Finland.

Karsten Mieth, Spokesman of the Management Board of Encavis Asset Management AG, comments: "This extraordinary success is the result of strong partnerships with developers as well as excellent teamwork throughout the investment phase. We will continue to leverage our market-leading expertise in the Renewable Energy sector to rapidly advance the energy transition. To this end, two further institutional funds are currently raising money: EIF IV, which -as the successor fund of the EIF II- is targeting banks, and the EIF V, which is designed for insurance companies and pension funds."

Herbert Schädler, Senior Director Alternative Investments at BayernLB, added: "The focus of EIF II on the regulatory needs of the (savings) banks and on exclusively one asset class (Renewable Energies), which provides investors with maximum transparency, were the basis for the extraordinarily strong investor demand. The target volume was clearly exceeded and finally reached 480 million euros of equity. We would like to thank the investors for their trust. On behalf of all service providers, we would like to thank in particular the advisor Encavis Asset Management AG and the AIFM HANSA INVEST LUX S.A. for their always professional and investor-friendly cooperation."
