- Infrastructure investment manager John Laing Friday maintained its full-year outlook on investment commitments, which it said would be weighted toward the second half of the year.

The infrastructure investment manager said it continued to expect investment commitments to total £250m for the full-year 2018.

Total investment commitments of £40m had been received in 2018 to date, the company confirmed.

Bidding activity was lower in the early part of 2018 but had since picked up in each of its core markets - Europe, North America and Asia Pacific – the company said.

'Following our rights issue in March and the sale of our interest in IEP (Phase 1), we have the financial flexibility to take advantage of our strong pipeline of opportunities, said Olivier Brousse, John Laing's Chief Executive Officer.
