The EQT Infrastructure Advisory Team seeks to identify control or co-control equity investments in infrastructure companies that provide an essential service to society, have long-term stable or growing underlying demand, predictable cash flows and an asset based, contracted and well protected business model. EQT Infrastructure supports its portfolio companies by applying its best-practices based value creation playbook across all stages of the investment process, from acquisition through ownership to exit. The EQT value creation toolbox, along with full potential plans, management and organizational health assessments, digital transformation, impact focused sustainability initiatives, and periodic performance reviews are applied to help each company reach its full potential.

EQT Active Core Infrastructure builds on 15 years of continuous refinement of an active ownership playbook and future-proofing of strong infrastructure companies. Primarily focused on Europe and North America, EQT Active Core Infrastructure targets companies that provide essential services to society and offer a distinct and attractive risk-return proposition based on stable cash yield generation, inflation protection, low volatility, and pursuit of longer-term value creation opportunities. EQT Active Core Infrastructure's longer-hold ownership horizon of 15 to 25 years and focus on core infrastructure companies at the lower end of the risk-return spectrum aim to unlock investment opportunities that historically have fallen outside of the investment scope of EQT’s existing infrastructure strategy. Deeply embedded in EQT’s Real Assets platform, EQT Active Core Infrastructure applies EQT’s active ownership approach and value creation playbook, leveraging on the infrastructure platform sector teams’ sourcing capabilities, industry insights, and local market access.
