LGIM Real Assets Provides Staple Financing UK Solar Portfolio

 

LGIM Real Assets (Legal & General) is pleased to announce that it has provided a £48m senior financing to support Fiera Infrastructure Inc. (Fiera Infrastructure), a leading Canadian infrastructure investment management firm, on their investment into a fully operational solar photovoltaic (PV) technology portfolio consisting of more than 13,250 residential and commercial rooftop systems.

This transaction marks Fiera Infrastructure’s first sole investment in the UK and the first staple financing solution for LGIM Real Assets Infrastructure platform. Located across England and Wales, the residential and commercial rooftop and ground mounted solar PV systems are operational and have a combined capacity of around 41MWp. The portfolio benefits from a 20-year Feed-in Tariff backed by UK government, providing stable cash flow visibility. The initial Legal & General financing package was provided to bidders as part of the vendor sales process in the form of a staple financing offer.

This investment further enhances Legal & General’s existing renewables portfolio and flexibility in providing competitive funding packages. The Fiera Infrastructure solar debt transaction demonstrates the ambitions for continued growth in the renewables space as part of Legal & General’s wider approach to real asset investments.

Tom Sumpster, Head of Infrastructure Debt at LGIM Real Assets, said: “We are delighted to have closed our first staple financing in the infrastructure sector and to have supported Fiera in their UK expansion. The investment from Fiera signals the strength of UK renewables as an investment proposition to international Infrastructure investors. This sector continues to be a significant focus for LGIM Real Assets and this transaction provides a stable investment grade income stream for our clients. We look forward to supporting Fiera on future opportunities"
