Opportunistic Institutional Investors Place More Bids on Energy Assets

Institutional investors are allocating capital opportunistically in the energy sector. For example, the New Mexico State Investment Council (NMSIC) invested in Carlyle Power Partners II, a private equity fund managed by The Carlyle Group that targets power generation assets. Carlyle Power Partners II raised US$ 1.5 billion from investors. Pensions and sovereign funds are eyeing strategic assets from energy giants and utility companies. In 2015, according to data from the Sovereign Wealth Fund Transaction Database, public funds and wealth funds invested directly US$ 22.06 billion in energy investments. The trend in 2016 does not appear to dissipate. [ Content protected for Sovereign Wealth Fund Institute Standard subscribers only. Please subscribe to view content. ]
