“We continued to advance our strategic position as a leading global digital infrastructure asset manager during the second quarter,” said Marc Ganzi, Chief Executive Officer, “with strong capital formation and progress on the deconsolidation of our operating segment. That progress keeps us on track to achieve our key strategic priorities for 2023. At the portfolio level, we continued to invest and support the growing demand for compute and connectivity driven by increasingly powerful AI and cloud thematics.”
The company said it made significant progress towards achieving its key 2023 priorities, including strong capital formation, operating segment deconsolidation, and support for the continued growth of its portfolio companies.
- 2Q23 Investment Management Fee Revenue increased 47 percent YoY and Fee Related Earnings increased 35 percent, driven by higher Fee Earning Equity Under Management from credit, core, and co-invest strategies and a full quarter contribution from the InfraBridge acquisition.
