Our approach to infrastructure equity

We aim to deliver stable, long-term returns to our clients through our infrastructure equity strategies  by investing in core plus and value-add assets across Europe, which accelerate and benefit from the transition to a low-carbon economy. We leverage our infrastructure equity team’s deep experience and network to source attractive opportunities in our target sectors. We also manage segregated mandates to customise outcomes for clients, and constantly evolve our approach to bring opportunities to our clients.

The increasing investor requirement in the UK and Europe to invest in climate transition creates a compelling opportunity for our clients. We seek to invest in infrastructure equity sectors that align to the transition, including renewables, energy storage, EV infrastructure, digital infrastructure, hydrogen and biogas. We believe much of the additional investment required will be in new or emerging technologies where there is no defined demand yet.

Key risks of infrastructure equity

Investment risk

The value of an investment and any income from it can go down as well as up. Investors may not get back the original amount invested.

Real estate risk

Where funds are invested in infrastructure, investors may not be able to redeem any units in the fund when they want because infrastructure assets may not always be readily saleable. If this is the case we may defer a request to redeem units.

Valuation risk

Certain assets held in the fund could, by nature, be hard to value or to sell at a desired time or at a price considered to be fair (especially in large quantities), and as a result their prices could be very volatile.

Regulatory shifts

The frameworks for managing essential infrastructure services can change.
