Governance

We are committed to upholding the highest standards of corporate governance and observe the requirements of the UK Corporate Governance Code.

3i Infrastructure has no employees, and its investment and portfolio monitoring activities are carried out by 3i Investments plc, its Investment Manager, under the Investment Management Agreement. It is the Board’s responsibility to ensure that the Company has a clear strategy and that its Investment Manager has the resources and structures to support the delivery of this strategy.

The Board also has direct access to the Company’s external advisers, including the Company’s corporate brokers, financial adviser and legal advisers. The Board receives advice on a range of subjects but particularly on the infrastructure market, UK and Jersey legal matters and equity market issues. 

Our approach to corporate governance

The Company is committed to upholding the highest standards of corporate governance. It observes the requirements of the UK Corporate Governance Code (“the Code”), a copy of which is available from the Financial Reporting Council website (www.frc.org.uk), subject to the FCA’s Listing Rule 15.6.6(2), and to the extent applicable to the Company, given that it has no Executive Directors. The Code applies to all companies with a Premium Listing on the London Stock Exchange, irrespective of their country of incorporation.

The Company complied with all the applicable provisions of the Code for the financial year ending 31 March 2017.

The Board has adopted a code for Directors’ dealings in ordinary shares, which is based on the Model Code for Directors’ dealings contained in the Listing Rules (the “Model Code”). The Board is responsible for taking all proper and reasonable steps to ensure compliance with the Model Code by the Directors.
