Adrian Harrington said “The need for affordable housing has never been greater. At the same time, institutional interest in Australian housing has never been stronger. Lighthouse Infrastructure has already established itself as a crucial player in investing in the creation and long-term ownership of affordable housing. I am delighted to be collaborating with the Lighthouse Infrastructure team to support their work in partnering with government, the community housing sector, and institutional investors to deploy capital to address this pressing need.”
