"The Board is pleased with the progress of the Company in the first half. We are close to being fully invested, having deployed most of the funds from our successful 160 million capital raise in May and we have a strong pipeline of further opportunities.

"The balance of floating rate and shorter term fixed investments means that the portfolio is well positioned to benefit from a rising interest rate environment. We remain confident in the Investment Adviser's ability to grow the portfolio and source high quality, cash generative economic infrastructure debt investment opportunities that will enable us to maintain portfolio yield at 8% or higher and an annual dividend of 6p per share."
