Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPPIB) and Allianz Capital Partners (ACP) have agreed to together acquire 55% of units in IndInfravit Trust (IndInfravit), sponsored by L&T Infrastructure Development Projects Limited (L&T IDPL), a joint statement said on Wednesday. The two will be acting as anchor investors in the first private infrastructure investment trust in India, which will initially acquire five operational toll roads and plans to grow in the future through additional investments in road infrastructure in India.

The total enterprise value of the trust is pegged at Rs 6,000 crore after the fundraising. FE could not confirm the final amount raised immediately.
CPPIB will invest approximately C$200 million for 30% of IndInfravit units while ACP has acquired 25% of the units and L&T IDPL will hold 15% of the units. The remainder of the units have been subscribed by other local and international institutional investors, the statement said. L&T IDPL will act as a sponsor and its subsidiary will act as the investment manager for the trust.
