Sustainable Infrastructure at Gresham House

Our mission

We intentionally scale impactful infrastructure assets that are good for investors because they are good for people and the planet.

Our vision

To solve society’s most difficult challenges by partnering with the smartest capital to make great investments.

At Gresham House, we recognise that significant investment is needed in new Sustainable Infrastructure to address the key environmental and societal challenges that the world faces.

The problem of achieving ‘net zero’ is broad and non-linear, covering everything from low carbon footprint food, great access to the internet, how we care for the elderly, to how we turn our waste into a valuable product.

To reach it will require a multi-faceted approach, incorporating a range of interlinked solutions, covering everything from ensuring access to the internet to how we process our waste.

We strive to target investments that have the potential to deliver the biggest impact and the best financial returns for our clients. This is done through innovative real asset based infrastructure investment across six key subsectors.

Why invest with Gresham House?

Our focus is on sub-£50mn investments in regional projects where there is typically less competition.

We believe that with the right strategy and the right manager the potential for both social and financial returns can be achieved.

Indeed, when implemented well, we believe the potential for attractive financial returns is secured because of the impact.

Our team are highly experienced and have raised and invested >£550mn to-date across 12 infrastructure platform investments within our inaugural flagship strategy, BSIF.

Building on this success, further deployment will leverage these platform deals and we have an extensive (£1.6bn+) controlled pipeline for our latest strategy, BSIF II.

All our investments are required to deliver a positive social and/or environmental impact and are aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Vitally, they must also deliver strong risk-adjusted financial returns for our investors.

We also offer local co-investment opportunities for LPs either via a side car or on a deal-by-deal basis.
