Assumptions challenged: I3 board members question perceptions of infrastructure markets

by by Drew Campbell

A few weeks ago, I was in Toronto for our eighth annual I3 Editorial Advisory Board meeting, where the board discussed the challenges and opportunities in global infrastructure investing for institutional investors.

As usual, the discussions were engrossing, and that is in large part thanks to the broad range of people who sit on the I3 board — geographically, the board comprises members from Europe, the United States, Canada and Australia, and whose mandates take them into all corners of the globe to invest in infrastructure. The board also represents perspectives from public and corporate pension plan sponsors, insurance company investors, foundations, sovereign wealth funds, placement agents, investment managers, and investment consultants.

This range of participants makes for insightful discussions, and perhaps one of the most interesting points that I heard was about governments and their interest or disinterest in working with institutional investors
