GLIL Infrastructure platform (GLIL) is a collaborative partnership between like-minded institutions in the local government pensions sector, with a common interest in increasing exposure to UK infrastructure and delivering long-term liability matching returns.
GLIL was formed in 2015 with an initial £500 million investment by Greater Manchester Pension Fund and the London Pensions Fund Authority. It expanded in 2016 to include the other Northern LGPS Funds - Merseyside and West Yorkshire, as well as Lancashire Pension Fund as part of the Local Pensions Partnership.
All told, GLIL has implemented around £600 million of key investments, covering greenfield sites, regulated utilities and transport upgrades.
