Infrastructure is a cornerstone of future economic development. Assets such as smart grids, storage and fibre networks are becoming critical to support the triple revolution that the UK is facing: the energy transition, urban mobility, and the digitalisation of services.
For UK pension schemes moving towards their end game, private credit such as infrastructure debt, real estate debt and direct lending can offer an attractive risk/return profile and a source of regular contractual income. Accessing a diversified, or multi private credit, strategy delivered through a pooled solution, is now a reality that most schemes of all sizes can take advantage of to meet their long-term objectives.
Schroders Institutional Investor Study analyses the investment perspectives of 750 global institutional investors on the investment landscape, private assets and sustainability.

The research was carried out via an extensive global survey during February and March 2021.

The impact we have on society and the environment is at the centre of our approach to corporate responsibility. We focus on driving progress and improving futures by acting in the most responsible way possible towards society and the environment at all times.
Since 2020, Schroders has been committed to the United Nations Global Compact, the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative.
The UN Global Compact asks companies to align their operations and strategies to ten universally accepted principles. These principles represent the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which were set up to end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and protect our planet.
The Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact relate to four key areas which we have aligned our corporate responsibility strategies and operations to. In addition to anti-corruption and human rights, our aim is to help end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and protect our planet.
We endeavour to improve the futures of those around us – whether it’s embracing our own people, or creating a lasting positive impact in our society.
