The perfect investment or hot air?

The impending float of wind farm investment fund Greencoat UK Wind seems to answer many investors' prayers, but it is not without its risks. Stephen Lilley, partner of Greencoat Capital, said: "Operating wind farms should make attractive investment assets, particularly for investors seeking long-term, predictable returns". The fund will invest in UK wind farms that are already up and running and has said it will pay a dividend as early as August. The fund is targeting an inflation-busting yield of 6 per cent on the initial investment of 100p a share; after that the intention is to link dividend increases to the retail prices index.
