Working on our "Perspectives on Infrastructure" series has been a great way of hearing the views of thought leaders in the infrastructure market. None more so than Michael Ryan of Dalmore Capital, whose interview expands on a number of themes that have emerged over the past few weeks. In many ways, the Thames Tideway scheme sets the bar for what can be achieved when the public and private sectors innovate and work together to deliver critical infrastructure. The market awaits publication of the National Infrastructure Strategy with interest - hopefully this will act as an impetus to allow conversations to deliver the next wave of infrastructure in the UK.
“Thames Tideway is a good example of how the government can create an environment to attract pension fund capital, but nothing happens quickly. We see that as something that will start impacting our market in two to three years’ time.”
