Jan. 20 (BusinessDesk) – US investment fund Capital Group has taken a 5.4 percent interest in Infratil, buying shares from Utilico Investments, a UK investor managed by Infratil director Duncan Saville’s ICM.

Los Angeles, US-based Capital Group bought 22.6 million shares at $2.28 last Thursday, an investment of about $51.7 million, bringing their total number of shares in the company up to 30.4 million, according to a substantial shareholder notice lodged with the stock exchange.

Infratil shares were unchanged at $2.31 at the open of trading today.
