Who we are

Proven to Create Better Futures

InfraRed is an international infrastructure asset manager.

We have been involved in the infrastructure asset class since its inception in the late 90s. We were pioneers in developing and upgrading the UK’s social and transport infrastructure under the nascent Public Private Partnership (PPP) model.

As other countries began to embrace PPP to replace their own ageing infrastructure, we expanded internationally – creating and investing in similar assets in Europe, Australasia and North America. These early projects informed the standard for the skills and experience required to deliver projects, while actively managing risk.

Throughout our 25 years of investing in infrastructure, we have relentlessly sought to create and enhance value – and have continued to evolve our approach to suit the enduring macro trends driven by technological advances. For example, in 2009 we made our first investment in wind farms to enable the energy transition, as decarbonisation rose up the agenda. And in 2020 we made our first investment in fibre, to facilitate the growing digitalisation of our societies.

Delivering for investors and societies.

From building schools and hospitals to investing in the energy transition, our assets have a lasting impact on millions of people around the world. We create jobs for local people, enable economies to thrive, and deliver the clean energy that the world requires.

Today, we are trusted by institutions and individuals globally to manage more than $13bn of equity. We have invested in over 300 essential infrastructure assets across 18 countries and realised more than 90 investments. We continue to manage more than 240 assets in our complementary strategies across value-add and core.

We’re proud of this long track record, our proven experience investing through market cycles, and our vision to deliver for investors and societies.

Our team includes individuals from a wide range of backgrounds and expertise and through our culture of collaboration, we look to leverage that diversity of experience.

Our heritage is in early-stage value creation and that mindset informs everything we do. Our highly experienced team seeks to create, enhance, and preserve value across the whole asset lifecycle. We take an active approach to the creation and management of our assets, thinking creatively and acting decisively.
