Borealis Infrastructure is the infrastructure investment arm of Canadian pension plan OMERS. Borealis targets 'large-scale' infrastructure investments valued in excess of $1 billion where the firm can commit at least $200 million of equity capital. Prospective opportunities generally possess significant governmental or regulatory barriers to entry, as well as stable cash-flows linked to long-term contracts. Specific areas of interest include energy (generation, transmission and distribution networks), transportation (transportation gateways, rail corridors, ports and airports), institutional facilities (hospitals, long-term care facilities and schools), and government-regulated services (laboratory diagnostic services, satellite and other communications networks and land registry services). Borealis was formed in 1990 and is based in Toronto with an additional office in London.
