- HISI is a healthcare and infrastructure investment holding company
- Ardian acted on behalf of its own funds under management and the Dutch pension fund APG, a shareholder in HISI since 2018
- HISI was one of the first investments of Ardian’s infrastructure team in Italy
Ardian sold 100 percent of HISI, a healthcare and infrastructure investment holding company, to the Ania 2 fund managed by F2i SGR.
Milan-based HISI manages around 900 beds in two hospitals in northern Italy: the New Legnano hospital in Lombardy and the Alba-Bra hospital in Piemont.
HISI was one of the first investments by Ardian’s infrastructure team in Italy. The company was fully owned by funds managed by Ardian, which, through a series of minority stake acquisitions, consolidated its initial investment until it owned 100 percent of the platform.
Through HISI, F2i plans to pursue other investment opportunities in Italy for the construction of new hospital facilities and their efficient management, according to F2i.
“HISI exemplifies Ardian’s philosophy of long-term investment in the modernisation of Italian infrastructure and its sustainable and efficient development,” said Rosario Mazza, head of infrastructure, Italy, at Ardian. “I am sure that F2i will contribute positively to the company’s growth in the years to come.”
Ardian, headquartered in Paris, is a private investment house, managing or advising $140 billion of assets on behalf of more than 1,400 clients globally.
Milan-based F2i SGR is an independent infrastructure fund manager.
