Cube Infrastructure Managers

Combining regular yield and capital appreciation

Investment Management Company

Cube Infrastructure Managers is an independent Luxembourgian management company focusing on investments in the European infrastructure space. The Manager is constituted by a close-knit Manager Team with broad industrial and managerial experience, and with a highly international profile.

Cube‘s objective is to generate a combination of current yield and long-term capital appreciation through investments in regulated, brownfield infrastructure assets, addressing the essential infrastructure needs of the local communities, primarily within western Europe, and with a “Buy-Grow-and-Hold” strategy. To do so, Cube takes control or co-control positions in mid-caps with highly competitive runners up positions and develops their potential through organic growth and synergetic add-on investments.

Cube focuses on strategic infrastructure markets offering sustainable growth potential principally driven by deregulation and/or market consolidation needed to improve the efficiency of infrastructure & public services, notably Energy Supply, Communication Infrastructure and Public Transport.

Rather than being a pure financial player, Cube positions itself as a strategic partner, bringing both capital and management expertise to its portfolio companies. The assets are managed proactively, with a long-term perspective, based on the team’s expertise and its long-standing ties with infrastructure contractors, operators and public authorities
