Macquarie European Infrastructure Fund 6 Reaches €6 Billion Final Close

The Goodwin London Private Investment Funds team advised Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets (MIRA) on the structuring and fundraising of its latest fund, Macquarie European Infrastructure Fund 6 (MEIF6). MEIF6 closed at its hard cap of €6 billion – exceeding its target of €5 billion.

MEIF6, which is MIRA’s sixth fund investing over the long term in infrastructure assets across Europe, received backing from a range of leading global institutional investors. The fund aims to invest in a range of infrastructure assets including utilities, transportation, communications and renewables throughout Europe.

The successful fundraising of MEIF6 continues the longstanding relationship between the world’s largest infrastructure asset manager MIRA and Goodwin’s Private Investment Funds team, who have advised on all prior MEIF funds.

Goodwin’s European team was led by partner Ed Hall, working with partners Michael Halford, Laura Charkin and Alexandrine Armstrong-Cerfontaine, regulatory counsel Glynn Barwick and associates Simon Marshall, Simon Prosser, Alexandra Finlayson, Lydia Galbraith, Charlotte Haywood, Priya Patel and Oana Millich. The European team were supported by firm’s global network of specialist lawyers including U.S. regulatory and tax.
