Keppel Capital is aiming to raise US$1 billion as part of the launch of its new closed-end infrastructure private equity fund.
The Keppel Asia Infrastructure Fund has received an initial US$360 million in capital commitments. The investors include a sovereign wealth fund and an endowment fund, the asset management arm of Keppel Corporate Limited, said in a statement on January 29, 2020.
The fund is looking to acquire a stake in the Gimi floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility as its first investment. It is currently “undergoing conversion at Keppel Offshore & Marine”.
Christina Tan, chief executive of Keppel Capital said: “The Keppel Group is involved in a diverse range of assets, providing solutions for sustainable urbanisation.”
The fund will be managed by Keppel Capital Alternative Asset, a private fund manager under Keppel Capital.
