IFM targets weakened UK infrastructure

7 August 2012 Australian Industry Funds Management (IFM) is aiming to swoop on distressed UK and European infrastructure assets.

The Australian pension fund giant will look to boost its investment in the  Eurozone as companies and governments are struck by the on-going economic crisis.

The company, which owns stakes in Australian toll roads and airports, will bolster its London-based team by acquiring investment bankers, focused on infrastructure debt.

Robin Miller, IFM’s head of Debt Investments said: "We think there will be more opportunities to invest in both infrastructure debt and equity assets in the UK and Europe because of the pressure both governments and the banking system are under".
