    Foresight Group Holdings has successfully secured commitments totalling €300 million in the initial closing of Foresight Energy Infrastructure Partners II, the follow-up fund to FEIP I. This initial closing sees the addition of two new key investors to the strategy, including Border to Coast Pensions Partnership, a UK pension pool for Local Government Pension Schemes.

     

    The first closing occurs three months following the conclusion of FEIP I’s Investment Period, during which over €1 billion in capital was deployed. FEIP II aims to achieve a comprehensive return through both capital appreciation and consistent income by constructing a diversified portfolio of energy infrastructure assets spanning renewable energy generation, energy storage, and grid infrastructure.

     

    Foresight underscores that the diversified investment strategy is tailored to the substantial market opportunity presented by the global push to decarbonize the power system, bolstered by robust regulatory support.

     

    The investment strategy of FEIP II prioritizes long-term value generation, emphasizing investments in strategic energy assets that alleviate bottlenecks to the energy transition. FEIP II operates as an SFDR Article 9 fund, with a focus on making investments in line with the EU Taxonomy.

     

    Partner at Foresight Group and fund manager, Dan Wells, said “The momentum for future fund closes is strong, supported by multiple ongoing discussions with existing and new investors. We are confident of reaching at least our target fundraise of €1.25bn during 2025, marking a scaling up of nearly 50% on the prior vintage.”

     

    “We are delighted to announce the first close of the second vintage of our flagship energy transition fund. With the support of our investors, we are well positioned to continue our further fundraising momentum as we look to provide vital investment in the energy transition in Europe and beyond.”

     

    Partner at Foresight Group and fund manager, Richard Thompson, commented “We look forward to building upon the success of Fund I, investing in key strategic energy assets that remove bottlenecks to the energy transition facilitating the deployment of more renewables and the achievement of net zero goals.”

     

    “These critical infrastructure assets have long term value and in conjunction with FEIP’s unique approach to portfolio construction, are expected to deliver superior risk-adjusted returns for our investors.”
