CS soft closes infrastructure group after inflows of CHF600 million

Credit Suisse’s CSA Energy Infrastructure Switzerland has reached CHF1.2 billion after its third opening and won't be accepting new subscribers.

According to Credit Suisse, the investment group is now the biggest entity investing exclusively in Switzerland. The company doesn’t expect to have any new openings in the future.

Since the last opening of the infrastructure group several months ago, it has attracted CHF600 million of inflows.

The capital is mainly invested in supply-critical energy infrastructure facilities sectors such as energy and gas distribution as well as hydropower.

The group allocates exclusively in Switzerland with at least 75% of the portfolio invested in existing facilities and no more than 25% allocated to new project developments.  

Right now more than 130 Swiss pension funds are invested in the structure.

CSA Energy Infrastructure Switzerland was founded in 2014 by Credit Suisse Investment Foundation and is managed by Credit Suisse Energy Infrastructure Partners.

The investment group has an unlimited duration given the long-term investment period required for energy infrastructure installations.
