The UK has seen a sea-change in infrastructure ownership over the past decade, with specialist investors taking ownership of essential services from ports and airports to energy grids and water and sewage companies.
With capital pooled from pension, insurance and sovereign wealth funds, asset managers have assembled special purpose vehicles to own and manage their investments, looking for stable, long-term returns.
This study seeks to evaluate the impact of this change, with particular focus on the stability and security of the UK’s infrastructure under private investor ownership.
Our research focuses on the performance and capital investment in the UK’s principal infrastructure assets over the past decade, including interviews with industry professionals and asset-specific case studies.
