Opportunities for U.K. Pension Fund

Investments & Pension Europe:

The investment pools being formed by the UK’s local government pension schemes are collectively aiming to double their allocation to infrastructure, equivalent to investment of an extra £8bn, according to a report published this week by the City of London Corporation’s Green Finance Initiative.

To date 0.6% of the schemes’ total assets (£216bn) was invested in infrastructure, according to the report.

The report covered opportunities for UK pension funds to invest in unlisted renewable equity infrastructure and was written by Helene Winch, senior responsible investment specalist at HSBC Global Asset Management, and Gerard Wynn, energy finance consultant at the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis.
