Investment philosophy

Infrastructure is one of the fastest growing asset classes around the world with an 8% year on year increase in AUM globally in 2017.

It’s expected that almost US$78 trillion will be spent globally between 2014 and 2025 on capital projects and infrastructure2.

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 nearly 30 years and is one of the very few truly global
mid-market players.

ESG

Environmental, social and governance (ESG) is critical to AMP Capital’s investment philosophy and active asset management approach, as is our commitment to running well managed businesses. We appreciate the importance of ESG considerations among our investor base, and also believe sustainable businesses outperform over the long-term.

AMP Capital became a signatory to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI) in 2007 while in 2017, GRESB (Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark) ranked three of AMP Capital’s infrastructure funds in the top 10 of the GRESB Infrastructure rankings for the best infrastructure funds globally for ESG performance. This is in addition to scoring AMP Capital funds and companies top in four out of 10 sectors worldwide.

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.
