Vagn Sørensen, Chairman of the Company, said: “We are very pleased to announce the launch of PINT, which is an exciting opportunity for investors to gain access to attractive risk-adjusted returns from infrastructure assets that benefit from long-term contractual cash flows, and have a positive correlation to inflation and favourable exposure to secular changes in society.

“Pantheon has a proven track record of delivering strong returns by applying a disciplined investment process across a globally diversified portfolio and we are confident that their approach, which focuses on co-investing, thus minimising fees while maximising the number of investment opportunities it can access, offers a compelling and differentiated opportunity for investors.”

Richard Sem, Partner, Pantheon, said: “There is a growing and substantial requirement for investment in a number of different infrastructure sectors globally, where private capital is playing an increasingly important role in adapting to key global trends such as the transition to a low-carbon economy. Pantheon has a strong track record built over more than a decade derived from identifying compelling opportunities, in conjunction with leading investment partners, and supporting the growth and development of infrastructure companies in a diverse range of sectors. The strategy is expected to deliver a robust income stream and capital growth from creating value in the underlying portfolio companies.”
