Financing Infrastructure in the UK and in Europe: Challenges for Policy-Makers and Investors

5 February 2014 - 08:30 to 10:00

Chatham House, London


Russell Jones, Partner, Llewellyn Consulting
John Llewellyn, Partner, Llewellyn Consulting
Geoff Baldwin, Deputy Director, Infrastructure UK, HM Treasury
Tracy Blackwell, Director and Co-Head, Asset and Liability Management, Pension Insurance Corporation (PIC)
Chair: Paola Subacchi, Research Director, International Economics, Chatham House



This event will see the presentation of the White Paper 'UK Infrastructure: The challenges for investors and policymakers' by Russell Jones and John Llewellyn. The authors will argue that, in order to increase the levels of private sector infrastructure investment, the government needs to establish a coherent, national strategy for UK infrastructure which investors can see has long-term stability.

They will also argue that a new approach to investments in infrastructures is needed to promote economic growth in Europe, including the UK, and that a more intensive usage of long-dated financial assets (such as government bonds, pension and insurance funds) could support these investments and help to restore long-term growth.

This event is supported by the Pension Insurance Corporation.

This event will be held under the Chatham House Rule.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
