The UK government has sold The Green Investment Bank (GIB) to a consortium led by Australian bank Macquarie in a deal worth GBP 2.3 billion (EUR 2.7 billion), reports Offshorewind.
The privatization of GIB was announced by the former UK government in March 2016 with the stated goal to sell between 75 and 100 percent of the bank.

Since its launch, the bank has secured returns of over 10 percent annually for its owners and customers.
