Risks of infrastructure investing

Investments in the infrastructure sector involve risks which broadly stem from issues of geographic or market concentration, the financial instability of third-party sub-contractors, government regulation, technical failings, management capability and the economic climate including interest fluctuation. Infrastructure investments are vulnerable to adverse change in the economic conditions of the jurisdiction in which they are situated, as well as to global economic declines. Since projects in this sector tend to be of a long-term nature, projects which were conceived at a time when conditions were favourable may subsequently be adversely affected by changes in the financial markets, investor sentiment or a more general economic downturn. Investments in real estate may incur stamp duty, other property taxes and other expenses incurred in, for example, maintaining, improving and disposing of the property.

Infrastructure equity

Direct infrastructure investment may provide diversification benefits and attractive risk-adjusted returns as well as low correlation with most other asset classes.

Infrastructure debt

Infrastructure debt is considered a defensive way to invest in the infrastructure asset class and gain exposure to secure, yield-focused assets.
