The UK is one of the most attractive and mature markets for infrastructure investment. The government’s plans to stimulate strong, balanced and sustainable economic growth as we leave the EU, will lead to continued investment opportunities, for example in renewable energy, transport infrastructure and digital infrastructure. But how will today’s changing global trading and investment environment and government policy impact on operating assets and future opportunities?


Please join us for our first in the ‘DIT Investment Series’ for an update on investing in UK infrastructure, where speakers will talk about trends and developments in infrastructure investment, give an update on UK government policy affecting the market and share insights into specific investment opportunities.
