Direct investment

Bringing social and economic benefits to our towns and cities

Bill Hughes

Regeneration has been identified by government and industry alike as one of the key drivers of UK growth… it is essential that the property industry joins together in embracing the connection between infrastructure and real estate so that efficient investments can be made into improving the UK built environment.

We put money into businesses that require long term capital, thereby creating assets that can be invested in by the Group's investment and retirement businesses.

We’ve already put over £10 billion into direct investments. Some key schemes I’m really proud of in 2016 are our urban regeneration projects in Salford, Cardiff and Bracknell, with future projects being set up in Walthamstow and Bristol. Some particularly exciting developments are the new science park in Newcastle and our plans to develop modular homes.
