Our breadth of lending, strong origination capabilities and deep market relationships allows us to offer a range of senior debt investments. These are investment-grade and sub-investment-grade infrastructure projects across the UK, EEA and Canada in fixed-rate, floating-rate and inflation-linked formats.
Environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations – though non-binding – are integrated into our investment decisions and project monitoring. A rigorous investment process allows us to leverage our team’s extensive experience, prioritising senior debt in carefully-structured transactions. Since we began investing in infrastructure debt in 1998, we have never had a payment default (as of 30 September 2019).
Infrastructure debt investments have a low correlation to market cycles, matching long-dated assets and providing predictable income streams.
