The acquisition, in the double-figure euro millions, is Munich Re's first infrastructure investment in North America.
MEAG Managing Director Holger Kerzel commented:
"We are very happy to have realised our first infrastructure investment in North America, together with a strong partner. The investment makes an attractive and lasting contribution to the geographic diversification of our portfolio."
