Ainda Energía & Infraestructura (Ainda) is the general partner of a private equity fund engaged in the conceptualization, design, implementation and operation of investment opportunities in the Energy and Infrastructure sectors in Mexico. The fund is set as a listed private equity fund (Certificates of Development Capital), a structure established in 2006 by the Mexican regulator to allow pension funds (Afores) and other institutional investors to participate in private equity opportunities.

According to our investment strategy we can invest in the following industries: transport, including toll roads, airports and ports; water, mainly in public concessions and energy, including oil and gas, renewables and conventional power. So far we have invested in a toll road asset. At the present time we are pursuing other deals related to another toll road, a company providing ITS services in the transport sector, a water utility and several renewable and oil and gas projects.

It is important to highlight that Mexican regulation requires private equity funds with money from pension funds, to be listed in the Mexican Stock Exchange, therefore Ainda, as the GP of the listed fund AINDACK18, is subject to governance and transparency regulation at the level of a listed company.

In order to comply with this regulation Ainda has created a robust corporate governance, formed by:

  • A Technical Committee in which investors must discuss and approve any relevant decisions related to the trust, including investments. The Technical Committee includes five experienced independent members proposed by Ainda that have to be approved by investors.
  • An Investment Committee with experienced independent members (mostly others than those involved in the Technical Committee) that prefilter opportunities to the Technical Committee

Besides, the GP received a 22% capital raise from Proeza, an international conglomerate based in Monterrey, who contributes with valuable experience in corporate governance policies and chairs the Audit and Compensation Committees, as well as the Board of Directors. Both Committees include independent advisors as well.

It is also important to highlight that independent board members that participate in the two aforementioned committees of the CKD (Technical and Investments) have very relevant trajectories in the industry, offering highly experienced opinions with a mix of local and international knowledge.
