Who we are
Astatine Investment Partners is a leading, independent, mid-market private equity firm focused on infrastructure investments.
Based in Greenwich CT and London, AIP manages three funds that invest in infrastructure in North America and Europe. We target investments in the digital, transportation, utility-related and essential services sectors, with the objective of generating attractive risk-adjusted returns for investors through a combination of capital appreciation and a strong focus on cash yield.
We were founded in 2005 as Alinda Capital Partners and are one of the world’s most experienced infrastructure investment firms. We changed our name in 2022 to Astatine Investment Partners, to reflect the shift from our origins as a large-cap, core focused manager to our focus from 2014 onwards on the mid-market, core-plus space.
Differentiated approach to origination
We leverage our extensive industry relationships and network of JV partners to take a differentiated and long-term approach to sourcing. The majority of our investments are sourced through bilateral discussions. We have deep sector and carve-out experience, which enables us to take a hands-on approach to asset management.
Purpose and value creation
We are long-term investors in infrastructure assets that provide essential services to communities. We have invested in infrastructure businesses that operate in all 50 states in the United States as well as in Canada, the United Kingdom and continental Europe. These businesses serve over 100 million customers annually in more than 550 cities globally, and are run by a workforce of over 80,000 people. We seek to create value through an active approach to asset management, whereby we look to improve our portfolio companies’ financial performance, environmental, health & safety impact and business delivery, by working closely with management.
AIP has an integrated, disciplined and active approach to ESG. We are a pioneer in ESG stewardship in global infrastructure, and our Head of ESG, Tricia Burnell, was recently appointed to the newly-formed GRESB Infrastructure Standards Committee.
