Outsourcing, over-payment and a court verdict

Welcome to “The month in polls”, Infrastructure Investor’s new regular item aggregating the results of the weekly tests of reader opinion running on InfrastructureInvestor.com.

From now on, you can expect to find this page in our news analysis section every issue, so if you’ve missed any of our online polls, you’ll be able to catch-up with the results here.

On the right are the polls we conducted during the first three weeks of May.

During that period, we asked our readers if they believed Henderson’s limited partners were justified in bringing legal action against the fund manager over its 2006 purchase of John Laing; if UK pension investment vehicle the PIP should outsource its management, develop it in-house, or find a hybrid solution; and finally, whether the circa 30 percent premia being paid for UK water assets recently are too much.

Tying in with our cover story on the biggest risks in infrastructure investing today, starting on p.14, we have thrown open that question to you with our last poll of the month, currently running on InfrastructureInvestor.com.

So if you haven’t yet found time to vote on it, please do, and remember to check back on this page every month to find out what the market is saying on the day’s hottest topics.
