Investment philosophy

Worldwide investment in infrastructure is expected to be $79 trillion between now and 2040. However, the actual global investment need is closer to $97 trillion5
To close this $18 trillion gap, average annual global infrastructure investment would need to increase by approximately 23% per year
Portfolio allocations to infrastructure have grown significantly in recent years and this trend is expected to continue, as is the trend for more private capital to replace aging infrastructure or fund new projects
AMP Capital has been investing in infrastructure for over 30 years and is one of the very few truly global mid-market players

Environmental, social and governance (ESG) is central to AMP Capital’s investment philosophy and active asset management approach, as is our commitment to running well managed businesses. Our ESG and responsible investing capabilities are a major part of who we are and what we stand for. We recognise that all investments we make have a purpose and a wider impact – and it’s up to us to help make it a positive one for our clients and the communities in which we invest.
When investing in and managing infrastructure assets, we view ESG issues the same way we do other investment risks, focussing on identification and mitigation as part of our due diligence, including the appointment of external ESG specialist advisers where appropriate. The fact we aim for controlling stakes in our assets, alongside our approach to active asset management, ensures we are in a strong position to enact change across our assets.
