The industrialist behind Liberty House, which almost bought Tata Steel’s UK assets this year, is weighing a flotation of one of his businesses in the next couple of years.

Sanjeev Gupta, executive chairman of Liberty House and executive chairman of the Strategic Board of GFG Alliance, has said either his burgeoning banking and financial services project or a renewable power business under his father’s business Simec would be good candidates to enter the public market.

Other public ventures, such as a bond, are also being considered.

Gupta also foresees the potential for the UK to have an industrial “renaissance” in the coming years, which the UK’s Brexit vote will bolster because it will push the economy to be more “self-sufficient”.
