About us

Through seven investment funds, DIF invests in high-quality infrastructure assets that generate long-term, stable cash-flows, including Public Private Partnership projects (PPP/PFI/P3), regulated assets, long term contracted renewable energy projects and other core infrastructure projects in the telecom, rail and energy sectors in Europe, North America and Australia.

In November 2017, DIF closed the fundraising for its new economic infrastructure strategy, DIF Core Infrastructure Fund I, raising € 450 million, beating the target of € 350 million.

In May 2018, DIF closed the fund raising for its latest core infrastructure fund, DIF Infrastructure V, at an increased hard-cap of € 1.9 billion total commitments. DIF Infrastructure V is now being invested.

DIF has a team of ca. 110 professionals located across its offices in Amsterdam (Schiphol), Paris, Frankfurt, London, Madrid, Luxembourg, Toronto and Sydney, providing it with access to the growing number of investment opportunities across Europe, North America and Australia.
