Infrastructure debt

Invest in attractive, yield-focused subordinated infrastructure debt

Overview

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

AMP Capital’s experienced infrastructure debt investment team has invested in the subordinated debt of infrastructure businesses since 2001. We focus on defensive, non-cyclical infrastructure businesses in developed economies with stable political and regulatory environments.

We generally expect to take a lead arranging or cornerstone role in the majority of transactions. Our extensive network of international contacts with issuers and underwriters of private infrastructure allows us to source and select assets that produce superior risk adjusted returns for our clients.

“The growing demand for infrastructure investment, together with the limited supply of debt funding, provides the potential for attractive cash-yield returns.”
Andrew Jones, Global Head of Infrastructure Debt

* October 2000 to December 2015

 

Why consider AMP Capital for infrastructure debt?

Lead arranger

As lead debt arranger, we seek to add value through originating, structuring and negotiating pricing and terms that are favourable for investors.

Expertise

AMP Capital’s infrastructure debt team has extensive experience in arranging and underwriting subordinating debt, and a strong track record of investing in subordinated infrastructure debt.

Global network

AMP Capital has an extensive global network of contacts with equity sponsors, banks and financial advisers. These relationships often allow the infrastructure debt investment team a first look at and preferred access to deal flow.

Philosophy and process

We invest in defensive private debt assets that can perform across different market cycles. We focus on non-cyclical infrastructure businesses and target sectors that serve as the backbone for the provision of essential products and services, such as water, gas, electricity and transport. Typically, we favour assets with high barriers to entry, a regulated environment, highly visible cashflows and strong industry positions.

Diversified

We believe infrastructure offers compelling investment benefits – stable long-term cash flows, inflation-linked revenues and unique assets with dominant market positions. We believe the best way to unlock the benefits of infrastructure is active management and collaboration with infrastructure operators to maximise clients’ returns.

Robust process

Our process has three stages, which incorporates an initial assessment and due diligence of the opportunity; risk management to ensure compliance with clients’ objectives; and ongoing monitoring and interaction with management.

Opportunistic

While we expect to act as lead arranger in the majority of primary markets, we follow an opportunistic strategy to secondary asset purchases.
