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.
