About the Stanbic IBTC Infrastructure Fund

The Stanbic IBTC Infrastructure Fund (the “Fund”) was established in June 2021, as a ₦100 billion Shelf Programme, registered under the Rules for Infrastructure Funds issued by the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Fund was launched as an alternative investment solution which serves to bridge the gap between the long-term funding needs of promoters of infrastructure projects and the needs of investors with patient capital.

Nigeria, like most African countries, struggles with infrastructure deficit and for a nation striving to achieve development, closing this gap requires around $3 trillion investment over the next 30 years. The Stanbic IBTC Infrastructure Fund is tailored to address the infrastructure deficit by providing infrastructure investments and support in critical sectors of the economy such as Energy, Transportation & Logistics, Gas infrastructure, ICT, Real Estate, Waste management and Water.

Also, the Fund targets investment in projects with:

  • Credible sponsors and partners with good track record
  • Strong cash flow prospects to meet periodic distribution requirements to investors
  • Investment structures targeted at delivering inflation adjusted returns and premiums above the risk-free rate
  • Positive social and environmental impact

The Fund will seek to deliver consistent returns above its long-term benchmark (FGN Bond) through careful investment selection, structuring and execution as well as investment monitoring, whilst communicating clearly and transparently with its investors. Thus, the objectives of the Fund are outlined below:

  • Invest in projects that will generate a return commensurate to the level of risk involved.
  • Invest in projects with positive multiplier economic and social benefit that accrues to not just the investor but to the country as the Fund will always prioritize projects that have and social development benefits to accelerate economic growth and development.

Fund Governance
The Fund is made up of three (3) levels of governance and these ensure there is adequate transparency to provide comfort to Investors. The three (3) levels comprise:

  • The Fund Management Team. 
  • The Investment Committee. 
  • The Advisory Board. 

The Fund Manager has established a Fund Management Team led by an experienced Chief Investment Officer and other seasoned investment professionals with diverse skills. The team is responsible for deal sourcing, due diligence appraisal, execution, monitoring and exits as may be applicable. The Fund Manager is also governed by a well-diversified board who provides overall leadership and oversight function to the fund. 

The Investment Committee (IC) is a seven (7)-man committee comprising  seasoned professionals with over a 100years combined relevant experience in infrastructure investments. The IC reviews and approves deals presented by the Fund Management Team after a critical evaluation of the risk factors and compliance with the Fund’s mandate. 

The Advisory Board for the Fund is constituted to have oversight of the Fund’s compliance with its investment objectives and also on conflict of interest matters. The Board comprises one (1) representative of the Trustees, along with four (4) representatives of the investors in the Fund.
