Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – Alternative asset manager Obligo has announced the first closing of its third infrastructure fund, Obligo Nordic Climate Impact Fund (Obligo Infrastructure III AB). The diversified infrastructure climate impact fund reaches first close at €50 million as part of an objective to raise €200-300 million through the final close.

Obligo Nordic Climate Impact Fund will invest in climate impact infrastructure assets in the Nordic lower- to mid-market to facilitate the transition to a decarbonized and sustainable society. Alternative asset manager Obligo, which focuses on sustainable infrastructure and real estate, oversees commitments under management of over €1.5 billion across funds and separate mandates. Obligo Nordic Climate Impact Fund, Obligo’s third infrastructure fund, seeks to contribute to the transition to net-zero through climate impact investments aligned with the Paris agreement.

“Sustainable investing is part of Obligo’s DNA, and as a pioneer in this area we are humble and grateful for the support and interest we have for investing for the next generation.”

“We are very thankful for the strong backing from existing and new investors in our Obligo Nordic Climate Impact Fund,” comments Christian Dovland, the CEO of Obligo. “Sustainable investing is part of Obligo’s DNA, and as a pioneer in this area we are humble and grateful for the support and interest we have for investing for the next generation,” he continues. “We are looking forward to working with local stakeholders to create value, green jobs, and sustainable local communities.”

“We are focused on sustainable infrastructure investments and everything that can contribute to climate change mitigation.”

Although infrastructure construction projects can span a variety of industries ranging from power, transport, residential, and renewable energy to oil and gas pipelines, terminals and others, Oslo- and Stockholm-based Obligo has positioned itself as a trusted local partner tying international capital to Nordic sustainable infrastructure projects. “We are focused on sustainable infrastructure investments and everything that can contribute to climate change mitigation,” Gilles Lafleuriel, the infrastructure-focused Head of Sweden at asset manager Obligo, recently told HedgeNordic. Obligo focuses on four main verticals for its infrastructure investments: renewable energy, energy distribution/storage, clean mobility and digital infrastructure.
