Angel Trains is owned by a series of foreign investment groups and pension funds. In 2015 it was sold to a group led by Sydney-based investment manager AMP Capital, which is backed by firms including the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority, PensionDanmark and Swiss Life Asset Managers. The rest of the stake was sold to Canadian pension scheme investors PSP Investments. Angel’s ownership is currently 55% to AMP, 30% to PSP and 15 % to two Australian superannuation schemes and UK-listed firm INPP. 

Angel Trains is one of the three main ROSCOs (Rolling Stock Operating Companies) that were formed in the UK following the privatisation of British Rail in 1994.  It owns and leases trains and locomotives to passenger rail and freight companies, who then deploy the trains to run services.
