As part of its active portfolio management, the Essen/Germany-based energy company STEAG GmbH is selling a 49 % share of its wind farm portfolio in France (Figure 1)to an infrastructure fund managed by Allianz Global Investors, the asset manager of the insurance group headquartered in Munich/Germany.
