Our objectives and strategy

Our objectives

Our objectives are to provide shareholders with a total return of 8% to 10% per annum, to be achieved over the medium term, with a progressive annual dividend per share.

We aim to achieve this by maintaining a balanced portfolio of infrastructure investments delivering an attractive mix of income yield and capital appreciation for shareholders.

The Company invests in businesses where the downside risk protection inherent in infrastructure investments is complemented by an acceptable level of demand risk or by appropriate growth opportunities.

We drive value by adding new investments selectively, through our engaged asset management approach and by maintaining an efficient balance sheet.

The Company typically invests with a long-term hold perspective, although it may realise investments when we believe a sale would maximise value for shareholders.


Strategic priorities
