Investing primarily in utilities, transportation and social infrastructure in the UK and Europe

Infrastructure was set up as a discrete business line within 3i in 2006, when we, in consortium with three other international investors, led the public-to-private acquisition of Anglian Water Group.

Our Infrastructure business has evolved significantly since then. At 31 March 2014, it had assets under management of £2.3 billion, investing through four vehicles, 3i Infrastructure plc, the 3i India Infrastructure Fund, BIIF LP and BEIF II LP.

Growing our Infrastructure business is an important strategic priority for us, and in November 2013 we completed the acquisition of Barclays Infrastructure Funds Management Limited from Barclays Bank plc.

The combined infrastructure investment team will continue to use its extensive experience and relationships to source attractive investment opportunities in the UK and across Europe.
