Under the new partnership, OMERS Infrastructure and SLC will leverage their respective strengths in infrastructure and sustainable growth to identify and pursue investment opportunities in growing businesses across a wide range of distributed infrastructure sectors that focus on sustainability solutions. OMERS Infrastructure and SLC believe that this combination will provide companies and management teams with a differentiated and scalable capital solution as they look to expand their businesses.
Gisele Everett, Senior Managing Director and Head of Americas, OMERS Infrastructure, said:
“I’m delighted to announce our new partnership today. We both agree on the importance of investing in platforms focused on sustainability. While SLC brings a wealth of expertise in identifying, investing in, and successfully scaling growth infrastructure companies of the future, OMERS Infrastructure brings a strong track record of partnering with, supporting, and creating value in businesses across a broad range of infrastructure sectors.”
Christian Zabbal, Managing Partner of Spring Lane Capital, said:
“SLC and OMERS Infrastructure will together seek to invest in companies with technologies and projects that require a partner that can provide not only substantial capital to accelerate growth, but also knowledge and expertise to help effectively and successfully scale the business. The unique businesses in which we invest tend to be underserved by traditional financial markets. In partnership with OMERS Infrastructure, SLC will now be able to offer a broader set of capital solutions, and we look forward to working alongside a like-minded partner with a long history of successfully investing in, and building, leading infrastructure businesses globally.”
