The next generation of decarbonization infrastructure: Combating climate change is one of the greatest humanitarian and economic imperatives of our time

The increased frequency and intensity of natural disasters costs nearly $250 billion per year; this is a cost increase of about 600 percent since the 1980s. With a global consensus that man-made greenhouse-gas (GHG) emissions are overwhelmingly responsible for climate change, we are witnessing mitigation efforts from both governments and corporates across the world on an unprecedented scale.


History of U.S. infrastructure policies: A new asset class for institutional investors

Over the past 140 years, the United States has gone through these 11 phases of infrastructure development, and at each one of these phases there has been a different mix of financing strategies from full government participation, financing and administration; to public-private sector partnerships, participation, financing and administration; and finally to the modern era of telecommunications infrastructure, as reflected in the internet and edge computing, hyperscale data centers, and micro–data center networks.


Put to the test: Infrastructure in the new market environment

Expectations for inflation in the last months of 2021 were mostly muted, with much of the discussion focused on the hope it would be transitory. But with inflation now reaching levels not seen since the 1980s, those hopes have retreated, and investors are grappling with what this new inflationary environment means for portfolios and investments.


Infrastructure 101: A guide to white papers, articles and reports focused on the basics of infrastructure and infrastructure investing

In April, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released the third and final part of its sixth Assessment Report, Climate Change 2022: Mitigation of Climate Change. This third report takes stock of the current trajectory of temperature rise based on global climate policies and examines various possible futures. Among its key findings are that to keep global temperature rise to 1.5°C by 2100, we must reach peak emissions by 2025, but that current policies, if not changed, would lead to a median of about 3.2°C temperature rise.
