GLIL, a UK infrastructure investor, has acquired an indirect 25% interest in the M6toll concessionaire from Aleatica, a subsidiary of the IFM Global Infrastructure Fund.

The dual six-lane motorway near the English city of Birmingham functions as a congestion relief road for the publicly owned toll-free motorway M6 and nearby A5, A38 and A446 major roads.

IFM GIF invested in the 43km M6 Toll in 2017 and will continue to indirectly own 75% of the UK’s only privately owned motorway.

Aleatica, founded in 2018, is a global operator and developer of transportation infrastructure assets headquartered in Madrid with annual revenues of around €810 million and about 3,000 employees.

The company operates solely as a transport infrastructure operator and manages 20 concessions – 16 highways, two ports, one light railway line and one airport – across seven countries in Europe and Latin America.

GLIL Infrastructure is a partnership of UK pension funds which invests in Britain’s renewable energy, water and ports, trains, hospitals and schools.
