North35 Capital Partners and Graham Capital enter into a Development Agreement to support the
Indigenous Infrastructure Fund
North35 Capital Partners, an Indigenous-led advisory firm today entered into a Development Agreement
with Graham Capital, the equity developer of public infrastructure and public private partnerships for
the Graham Group. The Development Agreement is in support of the operation of the Indigenous
Infrastructure Fund (“IIF”), an innovative investment vehicle that will focus on equity investments in
revenue generating infrastructure projects involving Indigenous communities. The IIF is designed to
deploy its own capital and attract additional private sector investment to infrastructure projects that will
contribute to closing the gap in Indigenous infrastructure while generating market returns for investors.
“The infrastructure gap in Indigenous communities is well documented and has been estimated to be up
to $30B. This gap will not be closed by government alone and so this provides a real opportunity for
private sector involvement,” said Clint Davis, CEO of North35 Capital Partners. “Graham Capital is a
market leader in infrastructure development with a long history in Indigenous partnerships. Their
infrastructure expertise and commitment to Indigenous communities will provide significant value to
the development of the Indigenous Infrastructure Fund.”
“Graham is very proud of our Indigenous partnerships, which have spanned western and central Canada,
and so our relationship with North35 Capital Partners fits well with our commitment”, said Tim
Heavenor, CEO Graham Capital. “We believe the Indigenous Infrastructure Fund will be a catalyst in
developing a robust Indigenous infrastructure market that will have a positive impact on Indigenous
North35 Capital Partners continues to fund-raise for the IIF with an expected first close by the end of the
fourth quarter. The IIF will invest in the following infrastructure sectors – utilities, transportation, social,
renewable energy and telecommunications. Under the Development Agreement, Graham Capital will
provide services regarding the IIF such as due diligence, investor reporting, asset management and the
raising of project level debt.
