Private equity firm Lonsdale Capital Partners has invested in Infrata. The advisory firm will use the backing to grow its client base, and support infrastructure projects around the world.
Founded in 2011, Infrata is a consulting firm which works with clients to advise on technical, commercial, demand, economic and ESG-focused matters in the infrastructure sector. Serving a diversified client base from its headquarters in London, and its offices in Colombia, Spain and Canada, Infrata provides expert support ranging from pre-transaction due diligence to infrastructure asset monitoring projects.
The London headquartered firm is looking to expand this global reach further in 2022, and has secured new investment to help it fulfil those ambitions. Londsdale Capital Partners – a private equity firm focused on the lower mid-market in the UK and Europe – will now support Infrata’s continued acquisitive growth strategy, which targets suitable specialist consultancies operating in desirable niches or locations.
Alonzo Guzman, Managing Director at Infrata, remarked, “We are delighted to be partnering with such a hands-on firm with deep experience scaling consultancy businesses as we embark on our next phase of growth. The outlook for infrastructure investing is exceptionally positive and Lonsdale’s support to help meet this huge demand will prove invaluable.”
Looking ahead, with Lonsdale’s backing, Infrata will target further expansion in North America and continental Europe as well as the development of existing and complementary business lines, especially those focused on rail, aviation, and ESG. It will also look to build on the firm’s recent experience, successfully scaling and exiting P2 Consulting – which joined Valcon in 2021.
David Gasparro, Partner at Lonsdale, said of Lonsdale’s investment, “Alonzo, Valery and their team have made Infrata the partner of choice for both public and private investors seeking technical advisory support to deliver the substantial infrastructure investment required annually around the world. We are excited to be partnering with such an ambitious management team as we look to enhance Infrata’s client offering and expand its reach.”
