- Energy Infrastructure Partners AG co-founders and managing partners acquire Credit Suisse AG’s 30% stake in EIP, strengthening independence amid global expansion
- Credit Suisse remains an important partner for raising and managing client capital in the Swiss market
ZURICH, 21 October, 2022 — Energy Infrastructure Partners’ managing partners have acquired Credit Suisse AG’s 30% stake in Energy Infrastructure Partners AG, or EIP.
The increase in management control comes as EIP, a leading infrastructure investor focused on the energy transition, continues to grow and expand globally. EIP began in 2014 as a joint venture with Credit Suisse and since 2020 has earned licenses to operate independently as an asset and fund manager in Switzerland and Luxembourg. More recently the company has expanded its investment activity and client offering globally.
Consolidating EIP’s shareholder group around its co-founders and managing partners further strengthens the company’s independence and reinforces its foundation amid this global expansion.
Continued partnership amid global expansion
Following the transaction, Credit Suisse will remain an important partner for EIP through bespoke vehicles serving Swiss pension funds. The transaction will neither affect EIP’s ongoing investment or asset management activity nor existing vehicles.
“Increasing our stake in the business underlines our firm belief in EIP’s team, culture and strategy as well as our strong commitment to our clients,” said Dr. Dominik Bollier, EIP’s co-founder and managing partner.
“This strategic step enables EIP to pursue our ambitious growth plans in times of strong demand for energy infrastructure, which has become more important than ever in today’s world,” added Roland Dörig, EIP’s co-founder and managing partner.
