IDCM produced a research piece on the UK ports sector that was sent to a number of institutional investors. On the back of investor meetings to discuss the report, IDCM received reverse enquiry interest from an institutional investor in the ABP Credit. The investor had not previously invested in the ABP credit.
Further to the investor meeting with management, a long dated £50 million transaction was executed off ABP’s MTN Programme.
The transaction represented the longest dated transaction in the UK ports sector and provided ABP with attractive long term funding.
