EIG has invested more than $23 billion in more than 310 portfolio investments in 36 countries. The firm’s deep sector expertise and internal technical capabilities permit EIG to structure creative solutions for our industry partners in complex situations.
Our investment approach, which emphasizes capital preservation and the opportunity to participate in the upside of projects we finance, seeks to generate returns for our investors over multiple business and commodity cycles. Across the funds we manage, EIG has the capability to invest at any place in the capital structure of an energy project or company, from common equity to senior debt. EIG funds typically invest in hybrid debt or structured equity securities but have the flexibility to work with our partners to craft a customized solution to their financing challenge. We typically seek to commit a minimum of $100 million to a project or company and have the capacity to commit $1 billion or more to a single transaction.
EIG is an independent partnership with a distinct culture focused on teamwork, integrity and transparency. We operate as a single investment team and all of our senior professionals have capital committed to our funds. Our senior team has over 440 years of investing experience primarily focused on energy and related infrastructure. The firm has more than 110 employees operating from offices in Washington, DC, Houston, Hong Kong, London, Sydney, Seoul and Rio de Janeiro.
