Slaughter and May advised the Infrastructure and Projects Authority in connection with the launch of the UK Government's Digital Infrastructure Investment Fund
Slaughter and May advised the Infrastructure and Projects Authority in connection with the establishment of the Digital Infrastructure Investment Fund. The Fund will see HM Treasury invest up to £400 million to mobilise over £1 billion of investment in full fibre broadband.
Two leading infrastructure investment firms have been appointed to manage the fund: Amber Fund Management Limited, part of the Amber Infrastructure Group, and M&G Investments, part of Prudential PLC. M&G Investments' part is made up of Infracapital, who have partnered with Cameron Barney, and M&G's infrastructure debt team.
Plans for the investment were announced in 2016, with Slaughter and May winning the tender to provide legal services to the Infrastructure and Projects Authority.
