The IDEAS Fund is South Africa’s largest domestic infrastructure equity fund and invests in economic infrastructure (roads and railways), social infrastructure (housing and public private partnerships) and renewable energy infrastructure (solar and wind projects) in the SADC region. While infrastructure investments are vital for economic growth and have tangible social and environmental impacts, the fund targets investments with potential to deliver strong long-term returns and simultaneously seeks to meet both social and environmental objectives.
Founded in 1999, the Infrastructural, Developmental and Environmental Assets Managed Fund (IDEAS Fund) is a linked investment policy-based, pooled portfolio product of Old Mutual Life Assurance Company (South Africa) (OMLACSA). The IDEAS Fund is managed by the 35-member investment team AIIM, a wholly owned subsidiary of Old Mutual Alternative Investments.
