JLIF's Charlesworth to leave

19 May 2017 John Laing Infrastructure Fund (JLIF) has announced that its lead investment adviser Andrew Charlesworth will be stepping down later this month.

David Hardy is set to replace Charlesworth, who will leave John Laing Capital Management, the investment adviser to JLIF, on 26 May in search of opportunities in the global infrastructure market.

JLIF chairman Paul Lester said: “We wish to thank Andrew for his contribution to the success of the company. He has been involved in leading the investment advice to JLIF from its launch it 2010 to a business now valued at over £1bn. We are delighted that someone of the calibre and with the relevant experience which David brings to JLIF will be our new lead investment adviser.”

Hardy will take over with more than 20 years’ experience in PFI and renewable projects, corporate finance, M&A, fundraising and deal closure. He will transfer from John Laing Environmental Assets.

“I am looking forward to welcoming Theresa to the board, who brings considerable public sector infrastructure experience,” said Lester.
