The Infrastructure in the United Kingdom
Numerous infrastructure deals have come to the United Kingdom since the Brexit vote passed two years ago. This is despite the growing uncertainty and the regulatory and political risks. The uncertainty has caused many people to question how much the investors are willing to invest. Infrastructure assets, as opposed to real estate assets, appear to have more regulatory and government interference. The collapse of Carillion’s last year triggered questions regarding (PFI) private finance initiative contracts. Hundreds of infrastructure projects within the United Kingdom are supported by these contracts. The government has announced they will no longer engage in new PFI contracts.
