Washington, D.C.-based EIG Global Energy Partners, a private equity firm that invests in energy and energy infrastructure, has closed its inaugural global private debt fund at $2 billion.

The Global Private Debt Fund, also known as GPF IV, focuses on energy and infrastructure credit and direct lending.

According to EIG, more than half of the fund’s limited partners (68 percent) live outside of the U.S.

So far, GPF IV has made five undisclosed investments.

Credit Suisse was GPF IV’s placement agent while Debevoise & Plimpton LLP provided legal counsel.

GPF IV launched in February 2015.
