(the "Company" or "RMII")

RM Infrastructure Income plc, the specialist social and environmental infrastructure secured lender, announces that it has reached financial close on three social infrastructure loans. A total of approximately GBP11 million has been allocated to targeted infrastructure sectors, including the Company's first ESG Sustainability linked loan.

Thomas Le Grix De La Salle, Co-Portfolio Manager, RM Funds commented: "These investments support under-supplied critical social infrastructure sectors. The investments' sub-sectors all benefit from strong demographic and structural tailwinds, and each loan's cash yield provides a real return when compared with reported CPI inflation."

James Robson, Chief Investment Officer, RM Funds commented: "We are delighted to have written our first sustainability linked loan for RMII, with meaningful financial incentives for the borrower to meet certain sustainability and service level objectives. These loans suit both our borrowers' needs and the Company's objectives with coupons linked to the Bank of England base rate or SONIA. In an increasingly inflationary environment, RM Funds remain focused on the maturity of the portfolio and increasing the protection against inflation whilst supporting sectors and sub-sectors that are broadly insulated from economic cycles."
