Direct infrastructure, the opportunity
Growing demand for new and renewed infrastructure It’s estimated that US$57 trillion in infrastructure investment will be required between 2013 and 2030i. With many governments still fiscally constrained, this creates opportunities for informed private investors to benefit from assets with the potential to generate both income and capital gains over the long term.
Compelling opportunities for long-term investors Infrastructure businesses typically provide essential services in controlled, monopoly style environments, often with revenues locked in by extended contracts or regulatory frameworks. As a result, they offer sustainable returns with low correlation to traditional asset classes or market cycles. That can make them an attractive investment for pension funds, insurers and other institutional investors with extended liabilities and investment horizons.
