Financial advisers ‘bullish’ on UK infra

Three-quarters of financial advisers believe that UK infrastructure will counter the headwinds in the market over the next five years, according to a poll.

Research from infrastructure and private equity manager, Foresight Group, found that infrastructure is to become an increasingly popular asset class for investors, with 32% looking to increase their clients’ allocation to the asset class over the next three years.

In particular, the report suggests that renewable energy infrastructure will be a key source of investment opportunity over the coming years.

“The global and UK energy market is undergoing a generational change, opening investment opportunities across generation, transmission and distribution technologies,” said Foresight partner Jamie Richards.
