CACEIS and Crédit Agricole CIB provide equity bridge financing to Antin’s new investment initiative

CACEIS and Crédit Agricole CIB will provide equity bridge financing to Antin Infrastructure Partners (“Antin”) – an independent private equity firm – to launch its NextGen (from “next generation”) infrastructure fund.  

NextGen is Antin’s new investment strategy to invest in tomorrow’s infrastructures, especially from sectors with both environmental and societal impact, as well as a high potential growth, such as energy transition, green mobility, social infrastructure and digital transition.

Willing to support its clients in promoting their carbon neutrality by 2050, Crédit Agricole group – through its two entities CACEIS and Crédit Agricole CIB – recently announced its support to NextGen, by providing equity bridge financing. Undoubtedly a good opportunity for both entities to show their ability to support clients in the fundraising process, every step of the way.

This decision falls under Article 8* of the European Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation, regarding funds that promote environmental and/or social characteristics as part of an overall investment strategy.
