GLIL, a UK infrastructure investor, has acquired an indirect 25% interest in the M6 Toll concessionaire from a subsidiary of the IFM Global Infrastructure Fund, which has been invested in M6toll since 2017 and will continue to indirectly own 75% of M6toll. IFM is in the process of integrating M6toll into the global transportation infrastructure portfolio of Aleatica.

The dual six-lane motorway near the English city of Birmingham functions as a congestion relief road for the publicly owned toll-free motorway M6 and nearby A5, A38 and A446 major roads.

Aleatica is wholly owned by the IFM Global Infrastructure Fund.
