Infrastructure Investments

Infrastructure Investments

A leader in UK, US and Canada PPP and other investments, our Infrastructure Investments business has a proven track record of developing and financing projects over the last 18 years.

In recent years Balfour Beatty Investments has diversified into new markets and geographies. The portfolio now comprises 70% PPP projects and 30% non-PPP, demonstrating how the business has successfully evolved in recent years.

We raise and structure finance to help customers achieve goals that might otherwise be unattainable. We also invest directly in infrastructure assets, particularly where there are opportunities to manage the project upon completion and enhance operational efficiency.

Although primarily a long-term investor, we also intend to build a growing portfolio of projects as a developer.

What we do

  • Operate a UK portfolio of concessions, mainly in education, health, roads/street lighting, offshore transmission, renewables and student accommodation
  • Operate a Canada portfolio of healthcare concessions and we have recently established a presence in data centres.

Key highlights

  • Strong financial performance including £82 million in disposal gains
  • The portfolio remains substantial and diverse with a Directors’ Valuation of £1,244 million at December 2015
  • More than £102 million invested in projects in 2015.
