The IJGlobal Podcast

This latest episode of Infra Dig – the IJGlobal podcast service – sees the focus return to the UK Infrastructure Bank (UKIB) for an update on progress.

IJGlobal editorial director Angus Leslie Melville pulls up a chair for a fireside chat with UK head of banking and investments Ian Brown who is responsible for the institution’s origination and execution of lending and investing activities.

IJGlobal has been tracking UKIB’s performance as it builds a team in the north of England – Leeds – and seeks to achieve its mandate of crowding in lending activity and stepping up where other lenders fear to tread.

In this episode, Ian talks frankly about the bank's ambitions, building up the team and how it plans to drive investments into the parts of infrastructure that your average lender can't reach.
