DCLI news release

(March 1, 2024) We’re so proud that our investment in DCLI was voted North America Transportation Deal of the Year in Infrastructure Investor’s annual awards. A huge well done to the team, led by Matt Mendell, and our consortium partners.

Our investment in DCLI, one of the largest chassis lessors in the US, demonstrates our strategy in action – we focused on a transportation sector we knew well in a priority region, and the size of the investment allowed us to bring onboard four co-investors in the OMERS Infrastructure Strategic Partnership Program, our third-party capital platform.

Thanks to everyone who voted for us, and congratulations to all the other winners!
