Investment Strategy

Fund II primarily invests in equity and equity-linked investments and will seek to primarily focus on investment opportunities in ASEAN countries.

Fund II intends to acquire controlling or significant minority stakes in target companies, including both greenfield and brownfield projects. Investment targets should have excellent management team, good operating track record and strong recurrent cash flows so that investors in the Fund can enjoy both a satisfactory cash yield and long-term capital appreciation.

The target industries include, without limitation, renewable energy, energy storage, power transmission and distribution networks, gas storage facilities, gas distribution networks, roads (including toll roads, bridges and tunnels), transport terminals (including airports and ports), communication towers, optic fibre network, data centres, water and wastewater treatment facilities, logistics facilities, car parking, social infrastructure etc.

As a responsible investor in infrastructure investment, CEL Infrastructure Investment Fund LP II is committed to building a better business for communities in the region and around the world. ESG integration serves not only as our goals but also as our powerful tools. Our ESG Policy aims to incorporate material ESG considerations into investment decisions with the objective of integrating sustainability elements into the Fund’s investment process and improving the long-term financial outcomes. 

The ESG Policy will be reviewed regularly to assure it remains concurrent to the latest requirements of relevant regimes. Details of the Fund’s ESG Policy can be viewed at PDF icon here.
