Andera Partners – a leading investment firm dedicated to small- and medium-sized companies in France and internationally – has raised a final amount of €233 million for its Andera Smart Infra 1 fund. This success illustrates the growing interest of investors in green infrastructure and confirms the investment strategy of the Andera Infra team, which joined Andera Partners in February 2021.

The fundraising of Andera Smart Infra 1 highlights the strong interest of investors (including the European Investment Fund under InvestEU) in green infrastructure, resulting from renewable energy and ecological transition requirements.

This dynamic confirms the innovative approach adopted by the Andera Infra team which, since joining Andera Partners in February 2021, has implemented an investment strategy based on value added in key sectors such as renewable energy production and storage, sustainable mobility solutions and ecological data centres.

The Andera Infra team has generated minority and majority investments for individual amounts ranging between €5 and €30 million, alongside entrepreneurs in the renewable energy transition sector and shareholder-managers, closely involved in the capital of their companies in transitioning to the next level.

With this strategy seeking active management and the optimization of financial performances, Andera Infra seeks to play a key role in providing an enhanced transition toward a greener and more sustainable economy.

The Andera Smart Infra 1 fund is an IMPACT fund and also an SFDR Article 9 fund, promoting environmental and social characteristics under its investment strategy.

With seven investments already carried out in France and in Spain, and five ongoing investments, Andera Smart Infra 1 is currently invested at 51 %. Andera Infra thus invested in the following companies :

  • Ingenostrum, a key player in renewable energy transition in Spain – December 2023
