China Investment Corporation Invests in Thames Water

In December 2011, the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (ADIA) purchased 9.9% of Kemble Water Limited, the holding company of Thames Water. The private regulated utility company is responsible for the public water supply and waste water treatment in parts of Greater London, Thames Valley, Surrey and other areas. The utility is regulated by the Office of Water Services.

The China Investment Corporation (CIC) through a sovereign wealth enterprise (SWE) made its first major move into English infrastructure by purchasing an 8.68% stake in Kemble Water.

In earlier news headlines, CIC chairman Lou Jiwei indicated the CIC’s interest in European and American developed infrastructure.
