The investment case

Investment in bridges, roads, rail networks, hospitals, and the growing need for more sustainable, renewable energy sources such as solar and wind farms, means these sectors are the cornerstone of the UK’s economic and social welfare. This makes for an attractive investment opportunity. The assets are long term investments, with high barriers to entry, and underlying revenues are often underpinned by long term government-backed subsidies or other long term contracted payments.
