Berlin – A YPOG team led by Jens Kretzschmann provided comprehensive advice to DTCP on the second closing of its Digital Infrastructure Vehicle II (DIV II) fund. The fund was launched in June 2021 and has now reached its second closing at about €1 billion. The additional capital was provided by leading international institutional investors which complete the anchor investors Deutsche Telekom AG and Cellnex S.A.
DIV II has already committed €730 million in four transactions. The fund is one investor of Cellnex NL, the leading independent telecommunications tower company in the Netherlands, and has also invested with other leading investors in Open Dutch Fiber and E-Fiber, which collectively form the largest independent open access fiber network in the Netherlands. Recently, the fund signed its latest investment in a leading European data center company, which is expected to be completed shortly.
