About Infrastructure

Infrastructure assets deliver essential services to communities and industry by providing core functions that allow economies to operate and grow. Infrastructure asset sectors include water, energy transmission and distribution, transportation, energy generation, waste and telecommunications. 

Infrastructure assets display common characteristics of:

  • Long-term investment profile
  • Strategic competitive advantage and difficult to replicate
  • Relatively inelastic demand
  • Predictable cash flows and revenue streams 
  • Often monopolistic or protected by high barriers to entry

Infrastructure investment is attractive to investors with long-term liabilities seeking assets that demonstrate attractive and stable returns over an extended period of time, with highly predictable earnings that are often linked to inflation.  Infrastructure may also demonstrate lower correlations to other asset classes.
