Pantheon Ventures closed its Global Infrastructure Fund II with more than $1 billion in capital, exceeding the targeted fundraising and surpassing the private equity firm’s inaugural 2009 vintage fund, a news release said.
Institutional investors in the fund include the $1.4 billion Tacoma (Wash.) Employees’ Retirement System.
Pantheon also said it had appointed Evan Corley as head of natural resources within Pantheon’s global infrastructure and real assets team. It is a new position. Mr. Corley was previously a principal in the investment team. A spokeswoman said he already was responsible for the firm’s energy focus in the infrastructure team, and his new role formalizes and enhances his existing responsibilities. “It also recognizes and expansion of Pantheon’s real assets platform,” she added.
