DHIP Group, formerly known as Drexel Hamilton Infrastructure Partners, LP, is a diversified asset manager that not only directs private equity infrastructure investments but is also active in other independent lines of business such as sponsoring publicly traded Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (SPACs), investing in commercial self-storage real estate and partnering in joint ventures with licensed general contractors on construction management projects.
Within our infrastructure investments, we create superior value and above average returns for our investors because of our ability to identify undervalued opportunities in the infrastructure asset class that are either distressed or stranded due to logistics bottlenecks and transportation inefficiencies. Our team has the ability to unlock the unrealized value in these assets and we have a successful track record in creating above average returns for our investors. We do this by maximizing political relationships at all levels of government while also leveraging our commercial capabilities and ability to navigate bureaucracies. We have successfully negotiated and overcome regulatory hurdles and barriers to entry that open access to markets otherwise not available.
DHIP Group has vast experience navigating regulatory and permitting hurdles that are required to successfully develop and commission greenfield infrastructure projects or repurpose brownfield assets, to include large capital projects such as the $2.5 billion Plaquemines Liquids Terminal in Louisiana and the $2.2 billion Uinta Basin Railway in Utah. In both cases, we established public-private partnerships with state agencies and local governments and adopted the support of public entities and local stakeholders. We successfully created tremendous value and upside for our investors that far surpass the typical returns seen by most infrastructure funds and at the same time created jobs and an economic uplift for the local area.
