We believe infrastructure investment can help institutional investors reach their goals. Some of the potential benefits include attractive risk-adjusted returns, low correlation to other asset classes, stable cash yield, long-lived physical assets, barriers to entry for competitors, and a measure of inflation protection.
Investment Value Proposition Thesis
Global demand for infrastructure and a persistent low-yield environment make private investment in infrastructure an attractive risk-adjusted opportunity. Within the context of a global consensus for sustainability, long-term investors can maximize value by delivering sustainable infrastructure solutions, which may reduce risk, and enhance political and social feasibility. Infrastructure may provide attractive risk-adjusted returns with a measure of inflation protection.
Value and Sustainability Converge in the Long-Term
License to Operate
Consistent, transparent and verifable sustainability may enhance political and social feasibility of projects, enhancing access for projects and leading to planning and operational efficiencies.
A commitment to sustainability may mitigate the risks of costs related to environmental remediation and decommissioning.
As the following chart illustrates, infrastructure investments may provide attractive returns, often with less volatility than conventional debt and equity vehicles.
