Investing across European infrastructure, we design and implement solutions to meet client objectives.
A local approach with deep-rooted regional and sector expertise makes us a trusted partner in the markets in which we operate, helping to source deal flow and enhancing our ability to capitalise on prevailing market conditions. We target brownfield and greenfield assets in geographically mature markets, identifying areas for significant value creation.
We focus on assets which are resilient to inflation and market downturns. In addition to our infrastructure investments in mature markets, we are preparing investments in emerging markets infrastructure in partnership with BlueOrchard with a special emphasis on sustainability and impact.
Our infrastructure business was formerly known as Schroder AIDA.
Our infrastructure debt strategy has invested in
European infrastructure companies in
countries since inception
We focus on providing investors with access to developing and established infrastructure opportunities across all sectors in the continental European and UK mid-market, both through infrastructure equity and debt (junior and senior). We identify and capitalise on changes in the socio-economic landscape, building on this change to drive value.
Essential infrastructure - We invest in a broad group of core infrastructure assets, focusing on long economic life and long-term cashflow visibility
Energy transition - We support the transition to cleaner energy via a range of initiatives across Europe, such as wind power and solar projects
Digital transformation - We invest in assets enabling the digital revolution, from telecommunications towers to fibre-optic cable and green data centres, all of which work to make all-digital networks for the new generation possible
By being deeply embedded in markets we know well, we can be agile, pre-empt changing trends and deploy multiple value creation levers
Sourcing expertise – We use our extensive experience in asset analysis to be able to quickly and consistently identify assets and deploy capital to access unique, often proprietary, transactions via the team’s extensive on-the-ground relationships.
Full partnership – We form long-term partnerships for both sourcing and managing investments. As partners, we bring value by quickly reacting to market trends and deploying varied portfolio management techniques tailored to the assets in question
We integrate sustainability across all aspects of our infrastructure investments. We identify risks at the outset of the investment process and monitor ESG progress throughout the investment life cycle through proprietary ESG and impact assessment and reporting tools. We consider a range of factors, including energy efficiency, social impact, and governmental policies, to help build change within investments and societies.
With a team of over 400 employees working across 19 offices around the world, we deploy capital as a force for good, building positive change. We value diversity and see it as a source of creativity and a way to get to better investment decisions, along with creating an engaging work environment.
