PensionDanmark has today entered into an agreement with J.P. Morgan Asset Management (JPM), where JPM on behalf of PensionDanmark will acquire and manage a portfolio of senior secured infrastructure loans in Europe, the United States and Canada. The portfolio will consist of secondary loans acquired from a number of project finance banks. The size of the mandate is 750 million USD, which is expected to be invested within the next 12 months.
