History

Antin was founded in 2007 and is led by Alain Rauscher and Mark Crosbie.

We focus solely on investing in infrastructure in Europe with the objective of generating attractive risk-adjusted returns for investors through a combination of capital appreciation and cash yield.

The firm comprises over 60 professionals representing 22 nationalities, with offices in Paris, London and Luxembourg. In December 2012, the team completed the buyout of a minority stake held by BNP Paribas Investment Partners. Today, Antin is wholly owned by its management, who have always had independence on all investment and asset management decisions.
