UKIB hires investment director

The UK Investment Bank (UKIB) has hired a new director for banking and investments.

UK government stalwart, Emily Sidhu is taking up the role.

Prior to joining the bank, Sidhu worked at UK Export Finance, where she served as its head of project finance and financial institutions.

Earlier this week, the bank’s chief economist set out on the organisation’s policy on additionality, as the UKIB aims to position itself to support infrastructure projects.
