With a combined experience of over 300 years of infrastructure development and delivery, the CAMG Team bring real world experience of developing and operating infrastructure assets on the ground. We strongly believe that investment in infrastructure requires a detailed knowledge of the underlying mechanics of the projects, pro-active management and an ability to engage with stakeholders in the projects and their communities.
We respect our partners and counter-parties. We are socially responsible in the way that we do business and in the way that we approach the market, thereby creating a long-term stable investment platform.
“From my first-hand experience with Andrew, Ian and other members of the CAMG team, I know that that they act with honesty and integrity in seeking the best outcome for the projects, communities and investors, without being driven by self-interest.”
(David Toplas – Fund Manager on IIC Fund, c£120m portfolio acquired by JLIF in 2014)
The CAMG Team has come together through shared values of creating positive, sustainable improvements to society. This goes beyond a traditional investment appraisal and puts a holistic view of the social, environmental and economic impact that an infrastructure project has. Behaving with integrity and respect is a requirement and not an option. CAMG’s role is as a custodian of the infrastructure on behalf of the communities for which the infrastructure is developed and the investors that enable this investment.
