Introducting GCP Infra

The market


Target investment sectors – UK only

Target sectors for infrastructure lending are capital intensive, socially desirable projects which are, therefore, primarily backed by long term, PUBLIC SECTOR BACKED CASH FLOWS.


Investment structure

Investment is in PROJECT COMPANIES that generate revenue from long-term contracts with public sector or public sector-backed counterparties. Generally such project companies have no employees or other business.


Investment control

Total revenues will typically be used to pay IN SPECIFIED ORDER OF PRIORITY: the cost of operating and/or maintaining the asset, debt and finally to provide a return to the equity holders.


Attractions of infrastructure debt investments

The fund is primarily exposed to a diversified portfolio of loans secured against UK infrastructure projects generating primarily public sector backed cash flows.
