CHICAGO, April 28, 2023 — GCM Grosvenor (Nasdaq: GCMG), a global alternative asset management solutions provider, announced today that it was appointed by the Wales Pension Partnership (“WPP”) as the WPP’s partner for infrastructure investments.
The program is the result of extensive collaboration between the constituent authorities within the WPP and GCM Grosvenor to create an infrastructure solution that suited each pension scheme’s requirements.
GCM Grosvenor’s global infrastructure practice manages over $11 billion in assets. The team’s 20-year track record spans the infrastructure landscape and encompasses deep transaction experience across geographies, sectors, and implementation types.
“Our mission is to provide solutions that help our clients meet their goals,” said Jon Levin, President of GCM Grosvenor. “We are excited to be working with the WPP to apply the breadth of our infrastructure capabilities to address the WPP’s specific areas of focus, including generating attractive risk-adjusted returns, sustainability, and regional economic growth.”
The WPP was established in 2017 and is a collaboration of the eight Local Government Pension Schemes (LGPS) funds covering the whole of Wales and is one of eight national Local Government Pension pools.
“We are thrilled to be working with an experienced, flexible partner like GCM Grosvenor,” said a representative from the Wales Pension Partnership. “They took great care to address the unique needs of all constituents, and the end result is a customized program that successfully achieves multiple objectives across our member plans.”
