The consultant’s view: Infrastructure investing from the perspective of the consultant
Investment consultants, more so than others in institutional investing, have a unique perspective. They hear from and work with investors such as pension plans, insurance companies and sovereign wealth funds, as well as the investment managers who help these investors manage their capital. Consultants interact with the investment staff of pensions as well as their boards of trustees, and with the managers who make investments and the placement agents who represent their funds. In other words, they see all sides of the relationship between investors and investment managers. If you want good insight into the state of affairs in infrastructure investing, a consultant is a good person to ask.
