Infrastructure is one of the fastest growing asset classes globally, with institutional infrastructure allocations growing significantly over recent years. Portfolio allocations to infrastructure assets are expected to rise further in coming years as the benefits of investing in infrastructure are increasingly recognised.
There is a significant need for new infrastructure in both developed and developing economies. It is estimated that approximately US$57 trillion needs to be invested in global infrastructure by 20301. This means there will be a broad and growing range of infrastructure investment opportunities.
AMP Capital has a heritage in insurance through our parent, AMP Limited, which has provided insurance in Australia for over 160 years. AMP Capital is also a long-standing investor in infrastructure with over 25 years of leadership in the asset class. We began investing in direct infrastructure in the late 1980s, through finance participation in the Sydney Harbour Tunnel in Australia. Our infrastructure investment team’s capabilities span research, origination and due diligence, transaction execution, asset management and portfolio construction and management.
At AMP Capital, institutional investors can access the benefits of infrastructure by investing in infrastructure equity, unlisted and listed, as well as private infrastructure debt.
