Talk to an expert

Investing in the Future

Infrastructure investing is changing. Large scale projects are more complex than ever, involving more stakeholders, more regulatory scrutiny, and more concerns around reducing carbon footprints. At the same time, new technologies – and the increased use of data and analytics – are changing the way firms invest as well as manage their portfolio of assets.

Whether you’re a dedicated infrastructure fund, an alternative asset manager, or an institutional investor, our tailored leadership and talent advisory services can support your human capital needs across your business.

Staying one step ahead

Your people need to understand the interaction between infrastructure firms, policymakers, local communities, and other stakeholders. They need to know the market while also having a good knowledge of the impact of emerging technologies so they can pinpoint which investments are right for your portfolio.

Diversity & Inclusion: getting the best candidate for the role

At Sheffield Haworth, every talent engagement includes a focus on diversity and inclusion. You need the best person for the role, and our approach helps to mitigate selection bias and emphasises the value of diversity of thought. When you need the best talent, we help you find it – whatever their background.
